EESI are delighted to announce our sponsorship of Dan Cooper Motorsport for the 2017 season. Dan, who was born in Gloucester, has been motorbike racing since he was 11 years old and has enjoyed successful seasons in previous years, including at a National level in Britain and Spain. In 2006 Dan became British champion in the 125cc category and then moved into the British Supersport Championship in 2007, where he achieved numerous podium finishes, including one win and a best championship position of 5th over the following 4 years.
In 2010 Dan also made his debut at the Isle of Man TT, which is considered the most prestigious motorcycle race in the world. He fell in love with the circuit from the very first lap completed and now looks forward to racing on the island every year.
Dan has been consistently finishing in the top ten in each class at the international road races which includes a 3rd position finish in the 350cc Classic TT at the Isle of Man in 2013, becoming the first person to complete an average lap of over 100mph on a Manx Norton. In 2013 he concentrated purely on the international road races with Centurion racing and he achieved some of his best results.
In 2014 Dan contested in selected rounds of the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship as preparation for Road Racing. Dan ran in all of the Irish road races and at the Isle of Man, finishing 2nd in the 500cc Classic TT and 8th position at the prestigious Macau GP.
2015 was a fantastic year of racing, being crowned TT Privateer Champion, a podium at the Ulster GP and top 15 finishes throughout the season. 2016 saw Dan take victories at the Ulster Grand Prix, Castle Coombe and the Welsh Open at Aberdare.
EESI Managing Director, Derek Jarman, said “We are thrilled to be sponsoring Dan, because not only is he a brilliant racer, but he is also a Gloucestershire local. I am looking forward to watching his progression throughout the season and sharing in his successes.”
Dan will be racing in the Isle of Man TT, Northwest 200, the Ulster Grand Prix and the Macau Grand prix during this year, among other races.
John Cooper, Dan’s manager, said that he was pleased that local businesses are supporting Dan;
“It is fantastic to have the support of local business for Dan’s racing. Not only is it nice to be recognised by these businesses as a successful team, in turn we take their business names all over the world. Daniel very much values local sponsorship and is delighted to have obtained sponsorship from EESI, as it is extremely difficult to secure local sponsors. He will do his very best to give EESI a great day out at Castle Combe and ensure that their brand is advertised throughout the season.”
