Allingham and Twyman eyeing title glory after staying with EHA


By Robert Jones

EHA Racing will again undertake a two-pronged assault on the British Supersport Championship in 2018 with David Allingham and Ross Twyman.

Both riders will remain in the EHA Racing set-up for a third consecutive season in the class with aspirations of title success, having finished fourth and sixth respectively last year.

Allingham, who recently celebrated his 23rd birthday, has taken fourth place for the past two seasons and, with 10 podiums in the same period, the Eglinton-based Irish rider has only one goal on his mind this year.

He said: "I'm really happy to be going again with EHA Racing. After two good seasons in the class, we really need to focus on a solid Championship campaign in 2018. Last season I was in the running at the sharp end and was a little disappointed to end up fourth.

"The goal is to get that first win out of the way early on, as I know that will bring the confidence we need to get a run going. The plan now is to finish off with a good month to six weeks of training, combine that with some testing and arrive at Donington Park ready to challenge."

Twyman finished sixth last season and, under the guidance of EHA Racing and chief technical director Adrian Gorst, the 22-year-old is looking to be a regular podium contender at least.

He said: "I'm looking forward to getting back on track. With another year's experience under my belt, it's time to make my own luck in the class. I feel I've served my apprenticeship, so I'm looking forward to having a real go this season with EHA Racing."

EHA Racing team manager Gail Allingham added: "We learned a lot last year developing the new R6 and now feel we have a winning package that will allow the boys to be fighting for that Championship."
