Race schedule wise, alongside TT 2017, his opening roads outing of the year is set to be at the Spring Cup National Road Races at Oliver’s Mount.

He is also planning to return to the Southern 100, plus the Classic TT Races which last year Saw Adrian wrap up a very creditable 20th place finish in the Motorsport Merchandise Superbike race.

Adrian’s main aim this year, is to improve his lap speeds around the Mountain Course, at TT 2017.

Brother of Duke Road Race Rankings champion Dean Harrison and son of 2014 Sidecar TT championship winner Conrad Harrison, it’s fair to say Adrian is part of one of pure road racing’s most famous racing families.

His current personal best result to date at the TT Races, is 15th times two, via 15th place finishes in the 2014 and 2016 Lightweight TT encounters.

Set to pilot this year, arguably his most high spec steads thus far in his racing career, don’t be surprised to see Adrian spring many a surprise or two on the roads in 2017.
