2013 lightweight Manx Grand Prix winner Alistair Haworth is greatly looking forward to the start of the 2015 road racing season.
Regarded by many as one of the leading 400 riders in road racing Alistair last season enjoyed a tremendous year of pure road racing action.
Main highlights included back to back 400 race victories at the Southern 100, multiple top three finishes around Oliver’s Mount and race wins at Cookstown 100 and Aberdare park road races.
In 2015 Alistair is set to compete at all meetings at Oliver’s Mount which include Spring Cup national road races, Barry Sheene road race festival, cock of the north road races and the 69th Scarborough gold cup.
Add in returns to Southern 100, Cookstown 100, Tandragee 100 and Aberdare park road races its set to be a highly enterprising years racing for Alistair.
Over the years we’ve seen many a 400 specialist on the roads, the likes of Dave Leach, Richard Quayle, Steve Linsdell and John McGuinness have proved themselves to be great 400 riders.
There is no doubt Alistair Haworth is one, in recent years he has emerged as arguably the leading competitor in the popular class.
Looking to the future in 2016 return to the mountain course is on the cards with the potential to compete on an F2 machine at the classic TT races.
But for now the 15th place finisher in 2014 Duke road race rankings championship is looking forward to competing again in 400 races this year on a 400 Yamaha backed by Surf and Turf instant shelters and Brookside garage.
