2016 was an incredible year for rider Daniel Hegarty.
He privately entered all races, with 2014 ZX10 and ZX6 which were both RTR Racing prepped machines. All the work on these bikes were done by Daniel himself, with the help of some good friends. Especially Paul Thompson – who has always been behind Daniel. Paul is his top mechanic, helping him with all the bike preparation before races and also going along to all races to help.
It is clear all of Daniels preporation and dedication paid off in 2016, after he achieved the following results throughout the season.
Isle of Man TT
This was by far Daniels best year at he TT. Winning Privateer’s Champion!!
Daniel achieved four top 20 finishes, including 11th place in both the RL360 Quantum Superstock and Pokerstars Senior TT Races. These are Daniles highest place finishes to date.
His fastest lap was 128.431mph making him the 25th fastest ever around the islands course. This speed was achieved on the RST Superbike Race.,
