RE: Davey Todd leaves Padgetts
This is a sad story as I really admire both Padgett's and Todd. Between them they ran an incredibly successful Superstock 1000 campaign in BSB last year yet this year in the Superbike class they're near the back of the field. I wonder if this is an example of the massive cost differential between Superstock and Superbike?

I'd hazard a guess that this is exactly the reason. There's some big budgets on the bsb grid, padgetts are a privately run team. With success beyond their budget.

I'm sure padgetts will have more success top come, especially on the roads where they do very well.

Todd I'm sure will have the same success.

Silly season kicking off already.

RE: Davey Todd leaves Padgetts
Be interesting to see what team he has when he turns up at Cadwell and what bike he is riding.

That's a nice idea Alfie, with some strong support from HRC?

RE: Davey Todd leaves Padgetts
Is it just me? Or did DT have a couple of pops at Padgetts?
Didn’t come across well at all in my opinion.

RE: Davey Todd leaves Padgetts
If he's got something lined up for Cadwell (BSB),  it seems unlikely he'll be at MGP.

I don't recall Todd at the mgp in recent years, I don't think he intends to ride the manx and will concentrate on bsb

Be nice to see mcpint on the padgetts yzr at the manx

RE: Davey Todd leaves Padgetts
Maybe I dreamt it!  Confused 
I thought I'd read something about him riding the Padgetts 250, 
then again, maybe it was just wishful thinking! Blush

Would be nice to see John on a "superbike" at the Manx.

I watched his latest YouTube video and he was nothing but complimentary about Padgett's. Said he would remain life long friends with Clive.
