Team ILR celebrating Joey Thompson's victory at recent the Post TT meeting.

Team ILR are pleased to announce that they have been joined at the Southern 100 Road Races over the Billown circuit on the Isle of Man, by well-known female racer Maria Costello.

The first woman ever to claim a podium finish in a race around the Isle of Man TT course, Costello will pilot the second Mark Coverdale Paton alongside regular teamster Joey Thompson in the Supertwins races.

The Coverdale Patons have proven to be a potent weapon in their outings so far this season.

At the North-West 200 its sheer speed in a straight line raised more than a few eyebrows as Thompson scored two well- deserved third place podiums.

Two weeks later at the Isle of Man TT races, Joey and Team ILR owner-manager Ian Lougher registered two Top 6 finishes with fifth and sixth respectively.

Thompson then took the Paton to victory at the traditional Post-TT races over the Billown circuit when he scored a dominant win in the Radcliffe Butchers 250/650cc race.

Monday evening practice at the Southern 100 has already seen Joey on the pace in 4th, and on Tuesday evening he finished second in the 600 class of the 1000cc race.

 The action continues on Wednesday and Thursday
