Young Irish star Kevin Keyes, Tom Fisher and TJ Toms will help the G&S Racing Kawasaki team make a welcome return to Bishopscourt for the 42nd Sunflower Trophy meeting at the end of the month.

Keyes, who hails from Offaly, started the year with a fine victory in the Stock 600 series after joining G&S Racing Kawasaki this season.

Since then, however, the 21-year-old has had his fair share of bad luck with a couple of crashes and a wrist injury.

He has already confirmed his place in the team for next year and says that with no pressure on him he is going to enjoy the final two rounds of the series and have some fun.

He is looking forward to racing on home tarmac and will be aiming his sights at the top step of the podium.

Fisher has taken over the role of the team manager this year but has seized the opportunity to return to the track at the Sunflower meeting.

Toms is only 18 but is a hugely talented rider currently in the National Superstock 600 Championship. He is running within the top six in the series this year and recording top-five finishes.
