EHA Racing announce British Supersport line up for 2016 campaign

EHA Racing has announced their three-strong rider line-up for the 2016 British Supersport Championship with David Allingham and Ross Twyman in addition to a satellite team with Sam Wilford.  

The team who finished runner-up in last year's Supersport Evo class are now ready to battle for championship honours with 20-year-old Allingham, who was a podium finisher in the Evo class this season and 20-year-old Twyman progresses from the Pirelli National Superstock 600 Championship. Wilford meanwhile was victorious in the Aprilia RRV450 Challenge title despite missing several races and competed in the European Junior Cup, scoring a podium finish.

Allingham said: "I am so happy to be onboard with the EHA Racing team and it is great to be back working with Adrian [Gorst] and my family. It's a really big opportunity for me to get back to the sharp end of things and prove my talent. I have a lot of faith in my Dad and his team and he obviously has faith in me for giving me this chance, so we want to make 2016 a good one!"

Twyman said: "I am really pleased to have signed with EHA Racing for 2016.  I'm looking forward to the move up to the Supersport class and can't thank the team enough for this opportunity. I am up for the challenge and will be giving it my best - I can't wait to start working with the team and getting out for our first test."

Wilford said: "I'm absolutely over the moon to be riding as part of EHA Racing in the Supersport series for my 2016 campaign. I am looking forward to this new challenge on the Yamaha R6; it's going to be a learning year with loads to take in, but I'm sure we can make it a positive one.  With only a few months to go before the new season I can't wait to get out there."

Team Manager Gail Allingham commented: "We are delighted to have David back in the team again and are really looking forward to working with Ross and Sam. All three boys came through the Aprilia 450 Challenge together so there is already a great team rapport which we hope we can build on, and with the help of our experienced crew chief Adrian Gorst and the rest of our great team, we are aiming for a very successful year for EHA Racing. We are also still in talks with a few riders for the Superstock 1000 class on the Aprilias so we will have an update on that when we have everything confirmed."
