Victor Cox confirms Isle of Man TT debut

Experienced British championship rider Victor Cox will make his debut at the Isle of Man TT this year on a Honda Fireblade for TC Racing.
Leading Pirelli National Superstock 1000cc Championship competitor Victor Cox will make his debut at the Isle of Man TT this year.

The 29-year-old will ride a Honda CBR1000RR in the Superbike, Superstock and Senior races for TC Racing, owned by former rider Mick Charnock.

The team has previously fielded a host of newcomers at the TT, including Cameron Donald, David Johnson, Jimmy Storrar and Robbin Harms, who made his Mountain Course bow last year.

Cox, from Trowbridge, has won races at National Superstock 1000 level and has also competed in selected British Superbike rounds in the past.

He first came to prominence in the Virgin Mobile Yamaha R6 Cup, finishing tenth overall in 2004, but soon moved into the Superstock division where he became a regular podium finisher.

In 2008, he took ninth overall with nine top ten finishes and two years later he improved to eighth when he was team-mate to top TT rider Conor Cummins in Ian Lougher's Kawasaki team. That year saw him almost ever present in the top ten as he ended the year with a flurry, scoring four top six finishes in the last five rounds.

Continuing with Lougher's team in 2011, Cox took his maiden podium in the class at Silverstone on his way to seventh overall and the partnership continued on its upward trajectory in 2012, when he sealed a brilliant third place overall behind Keith Farmer and Jason O'Halloran.

Cox was the only rider to score points in every round that year with podiums coming at Knockhill, Oulton Park and Donington Park.

He finished sixth in 2013 but it proved to be another excellent season as he claimed his debut win at Oulton Park ahead of Hudson Kennaugh, Joe Burns and Filip Backlund, and backed this up with further podium appearances at Cadwell Park and Donington Park.

Running his own team in 2014, Cox bagged more top ten finishes before riding in selected races in last year's British Superbike Championship for Morello Racing. The English rider also made BSB appearances in the past for the Quattro Plant Kawasaki team.

One of the most consistent riders for a number of years now in the National Superstock 1000cc Championship, Cox is the latest in a long line of leading short circuit riders to switch their attention the Isle of Man TT.
