Centenary debut for Dan Hailing from Melton Mowbray, 29-year-old Dan Ingham will make his Cookstown 100 debut next week, Now in his 16th season of racing, it was only back in 2014, when he sampled the ‘between the hedges’ feeling when he competed at the Scarborough road races at Olivers Mount. In 2018, the employee of Ricardo Motorcycles finished 2nd in the Ultra Lightweight Manx Grand Prix on his beautiful RVF 400 Honda. He achieved a personal goal, in 2019, when on board the Strangford Holiday Park GSXR 750 Suzuki, he lapped the mountain circuit at over 120 mph, thus becoming a member of the elite ‘Tommy Club’ A married man with two children, Dan will ride one of the new 660 Aprillias at Cookstown, courtesy of Castings Technology, and also his trusty 400 RVF Honda, sponsored by Derek Jones Butchers, and Digitial Deadline. Whilst this may be his debut at the meeting, Dan was a spectator at the event in 2018, as his wife is from Northern Ireland, and, he managed to snatch a run-up to the event! whilst visiting his inlaws. Keep an eye out for Dan next week.#135
