Gareth Keys to make TT debut

1 of 1

Northern Irishman Gareth Keys has been announced as the latest in a list of talented newcomers planning their 2015 Isle of Man TT debuts. The 24 year old is set to race in both Supersport and Supertwin classes at June’s races.

Riding for the B&W Racing squad, he’ll also benefit from the experience of veteran team boss and crew chief Brian Hull, who was instrumental in many of Scottish rider Keith Amor’s results in both Ireland and the Isle of Man.

Keys, who spent his formative years on the short circuit scene, burst into road racing in 2013 with a 250cc race win in his debut year at the Ulster Grand Prix. He then went on to a top ten finish in his North West 200 debut, before scoring a race win at Scarborough, as well as strong results at Cookstown, Bush and Armoy.

Speaking after his TT debut was announced, he said: “I am really excited about racing in the TT in 2015. It is the culmination of a long held dream and I am putting everything I have into making sure when I get to the event I am as well prepared as I can possibly be. I’m watching the on board laps constantly, playing the Playstation game and have made a number of trips across to the Island to try and increase my circuit knowledge. I am very grateful for the support I have had from the TT organisers with regards to my preparation and all of my sponsors who are putting so much into my TT effort.”
