Jeremy Toye to make NW200 appearance

Having already confirmed their Isle of Man TT appearances, Jeremy Toye and Steve Mercer will team up for the 2011 North West 200 next month.
Jeremy Toye will make his North West 200 debut this year after expanding his road racing programme with the Sondel Kawasaki team.

The American will embark on a fuller road racing schedule in 2011 having already confirmed he will ride with the same team in the Isle of Man TT, his first appearance at that event since he scooped 'fastest newcomer' back in 2006.

Toye, who was a podium winner in the 2010 Macau Grand Prix behind Stuart Easton and Michael Rutter, will ride a Kawasaki ZX-10R and be joined by Steve Mercer in a two-man line-up.

”Tourism Ireland have helped to fund Jeremy's visit and I'd like to thanks Aubrey Irwin and all the team for their support both in 2011 and in previous years,” said technical director Mervyn White.

“Set against the stunning North Coast land and seascapes, the event continues to attract visitors from across the pond and US stars such as Toye will help bring additional American visitors to the region.”

“I'd also like to pay tribute to father and son team managers John and Yonny Weeden who head up Sondel Racing. John is a former NW200 competitor as well achieving excellent success during the mid-1980s in both World Formula 2 and Formula One races and we're thrilled to have two of his riders at this year's event.”
