Relentless still looking for Brookes’ team-mate

1 of 1

Relentless by TAS Suzuki boss Philip Neill is still looking to sign a second rider alongside Josh Brookes for their BSB team.

Neill was on the verge of bringing Ian Lowry back to the team who finished top rookie in the 2009 BSB season with TAS but says that’s all fallen through.

“We had talked but I think Ian had been lining up something else. When he came back to us, the goalposts have moved so that’s it. I wasn’t entirely struck on the idea and now I can explore some other interesting options,” he said.

Neill revealed he is now talking to ‘a couple of guys outside of the UK, but also admits that he is interested in bringing Dan Linfoot into the TAS fold.

“I thought the lad did a really good job on a 600 and was a title contender until he had that bad foot injury. He’s always struck me as having a lot of potential for the future.”
