SCOTSMAN Sam Munro is eyeing a handful of British Supersport wildcards this season while he continues his quest for the Knockhill 600 title.
And with plans to head south for No Limits Racing rounds in the works as well, he’s set to rack up plenty of miles on the road.
Munro heads into 2019 determined to change his fortunes after having missed out on the KMSC Formula 600 crown as disaster struck in the second to last race of the season.
He was just eight points off eventual champ William Monie heading into the 2018 finale, but after breaking his hand and bottom vertebrae, he had to pull curtains on his championship challenge.
But Munro wants to make amends and is spearheading this year’s campaign with both a new outlook and a brand spanking new Kawasaki ZX636.
“This year I want to settle for some points rather than crashing,” he told UK Clubsport. “I’ll be racing with No Limits, Knockhill and doing five rounds of the British Supersport championship.
“The Knockhill championship is one I would like to get my hands on after missing out last season. I think if it wasn’t for breaking my hand and vertebrae I would have been there at the end.
“It’s been a long winter but I’m ready for the year and hopefully I can learn some new tracks and develop my skills even further. The new bike will take some getting used to and dialling in, but I’m up for it.
“I have to give a huge thanks to my mum and dad, as well as Munro Access Services and Shirlaws – without them I wouldn’t be here.”
