Phil Crowe focused on international road races

'While I will continue with the short circuit commitments, my focus and aim has always been to develop on the roads' - Phil Crowe
Multiple UK Club Championship winner Phil Crowe is preparing for a busy schedule during the 2014 season.

The Market Rasen man is set to make his debut at the famous Isle of Man TT circuit this year and also plans to compete at the Ulster Grand Prix at Dundrod for the first time in August.

Crowe will continue to compete in Thundersport GB in the GP1 class plus selected rounds of the National Superstock 1000 Championship, although his main focus in 2014 is the international road racing meetings.

“I am pleased that I can now finally announce my plans for 2014,” said the Lincolnshire rider. “It's been a very productive few months engaging existing and new sponsors, so that we could formulate a solid plan for the 2014 season.

“With three new circuits on the schedule, it is going to be exciting for all involved. It's an exciting time for me.

“While I will continue with the short circuit commitments, my focus and aim has always been to develop on the roads and this year I will make my eagerly anticipated debut at the Isle of Man TT and Ulster Grand Prix,” he added.

“My plan is to run in the Superstock, Superbike and Senior class at the TT and I will be returning to the North West 200. Oliver's Mount remains part of the race schedule for me this year and I am looking forward to running the BMW S1000RR at Dundrod, a circuit that I have always wanted to race.

“I have prepared carefully this year for the TT and Ulster, with some sound advice from experienced road racers. With the strong package behind us, I will be looking to be at the sharp end of the newcomers,” added Crowe.

“The Dundrod circuit will certainly suit my riding style and I will be hoping for a high-end finish at the Ulster.”

The Lincolnshire man also plans to nurture young motorcycle talent through his PCR Motorcycle Developments company.

“Additionally I am really looking to build on the plans to support young racing talent and inject something back into the sport,” he explained.

“We have some exceptional riders that we are working with, including bright young stars Tom and Tim Neave, who I believe have a very promising future. If I can help them along the way, it will be extremely rewarding.

“I am also working with Carl Simpson who is already demonstrating his skills and talents on the bigger machines. He will only improve and get faster this year.”
