Davey Todd moves up to British Superbike class with Padgett’s Motorcycles

Pirelli National Superstock Champion Davey Todd will take up the reins in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship next season, making his full-time debut in the class as 2023 marks the return of the Milenco by Padgetts Motorcycles Honda team to the premier series. 

Todd and the Milenco by Padgetts Motorcycles Honda team delivered a stunning performance during the 2022 season in the Pirelli National Superstock Championship, celebrating title victory together with one round remaining with a formidable tally of eleven podiums finishes including four wins.

The team then lined up in Bennetts BSB for the final round of the season as the 27-year-old made his debut, gaining his first valuable experience in the class, scoring a pair of 15th place finishes ahead of a full-time switch for 2023.

The combined force are now looking to build on the experience next year, where they combine Bennetts BSB with their road racing campaign, something that they have also excelled at in recent years, with Superbike success on the roads, winning the Southern 100 and Armoy road races, in addition to finishing fourth in the Senior TT.

The Padgetts team remain one of the most established teams within the Bennetts BSB paddock, with a wealth of experience from across the British Championship classes in addition to Grand Prix racing throughout the years.

Todd said: “I am super excited to re-sign with the Milenco by Padgetts Motorcycles Honda team. I’ve felt right at home there this year and after winning the Superstock Championship and it’s an awesome opportunity to get to move up to the Superbike class with the same team and same guys around me.

“I got to experience the Superbike class for the first time at the final round at Brands Hatch this season and we learned a lot as a team and it definitely got me excited to be there full-time next season. I’ve just enjoyed my racing so much this year and want to approach 2023 in the same way – I can’t wait to get going already!”

Team Owner Clive Padgett commented: “What can I say other than we are thrilled to be back in Bennetts BSB with our Milenco by Padgetts Motorcycles Honda team! Everyone who knows our team will understand how much it meant to us to win the Superstock title with Davey this year and now this is a natural progression for us to take on the next challenge together.

“As a team we have been on the BSB grid before and so it feels great to be coming back. We have seen what the Honda Fireblade is capable of in the class, and we know that Davey is a real talent as we have seen in National Superstock and on the roads so we are really looking forward to getting the season started.”
