His first year of competition at the Isle of Man TT was an undoubted success as the 2013 newcomers c Manx Grand Prix winner secured 18th and 13th place finishes in opening supersport and superstock races plus securing impressive personal best lap speed of over 124.7 mph.

But without a doubt the standout moment of the week was third place finish in lightweight TT as James proved to everyone why he is considered a TT winner in the making. For TT 2015 he is Honda mounted in superbike, supersport, superstock and senior races whilst for the lightweight TT he is ER6 Kawasaki mounted.

Ever since he made his pure road racing debut at the Ian Watson spring cup road races at Oliver’s Mount back in 2011 James has proved a natural on the roads. Going into next season expectations are good that his outstanding progress can continue to the next level as he builds up to achieving an ambition he has always had to become a race winner at the Isle of Man TT.
