In 2019, the Padgett's Race Team partnered with Milenco as title sponsor. The team achieved great success in their first campaign together during the International Road Racing season.
The rider line-up included Conor Cummins, Davey Todd, John McGuinness, and Bruce Anstey.
On-track action has been sparse for the last couple of years, so we are very excited to go racing and hope to create more success together in 2022 and beyond.
You can view images and race recounts from the 2019 season below:
NORTH WEST 200 - 2019
The 2019 North West 200 saw the Padgett’s race team competing in the Milenco livery for the first time. Thursday’s Supersport race 1 ended with a 7th for Davey, and a DNF for Conor. However, the second race in this class, on the Saturday, finished far more favourably. A mega ride from Davey Todd resulted in him taking the top step on the podium with a race time of 29:53:797, an average speed of 107.731 mph. Conor Cummins rounded off a very close top 3, finishing just 0.625 seconds behind his teammate. Later on, Conor took his second podium of the day, finishing 3rd in the Superbike race.
ISLE OF MAN TT - 2019
Milenco by Padgett’s had another decent outing at the Isle of Man TT. In the first race, Conor took 3rd place in the Superbike class. Supersport race 1 saw Conor finish in 6th, Davey in 9th, and the legendary John McGuinness in 17th – his first TT race finish in almost 3 years, after his lengthy spell as a spectator due to injury. Conor then finished 5th in the Superstock race, followed by a 4th in Supersport race 2. This race also saw improvements from Davey and John, with 7th and 15th place finishes respectively. Conor Cummins rounded off an excellent TT fortnight with another podium finish in the Senior race, taking 3rd place behind Harrison and Hickman. This race also saw Conor set a new personal best lap, with an average speed of 132.610 mph – maintaining his position as the 6th fastest rider EVER around the TT mountain course.
ULSTER GRAND PRIX - 2019
The first race of the meeting was the Superbike, in which Conor continued his fine form, finishing 3rd. He also broke the record for the fastest speed EVER recorded through the speed trap – a mind-blowing 202.8 mph! Later that day, Conor took 5th in Supersport race 1, with Davey unable to finish. The team then had an excellent Saturday, starting with a 3rd for Davey and 4th for Conor in Supersport race 2. Conor picked up a 3rd place finish in the Superstock, Superbike race 2, and Supersport race 3, with Davey in 4th for the latter. The final Superbike race saw Conor take yet another 3rd place podium finish.
ISLE OF MAN CLASSIC TT - 2019
At the end of a stellar 2019 campaign, Milenco by Padgett’s were delighted to have Bruce Anstey racing for them at the Classic TT. After a lengthy battle with illness, fan-favourite Bruce was back with a bang. In the Lightweight Classic race, he showed his class and won the race with a time of 58:47:539, finishing 70 seconds ahead of team-mate Davey Todd. A brilliant 1-2 for the Milenco by Padgett’s team! The following Monday, Conor & Davey competed in the Superbike Classic TT, finishing 4th and 8th respectively.
