Binch Racing Reveal Classic TT Plans, Sign TT Privateers Champion Coward, McLean, Vines

Renowned two stroke class competitors Binch Racing have confirmed that they will have a three rider presence, at the 2019 Classic TT, which includes new 130 Mph Club member Jamie Coward.

Eighth in this month’s Dunlop Senior TT, Coward’s tumultuous TT 2019 tenure also yielded a maiden TT Privateers Championship crown, just reward for his array of sterling performances aboard the PreZ Racing Yamaha’s.

Runner up in last month’s Geoff Duke Post Classic Junior race, at the Pre TT Classic Road Races, there’s no question that Hebden Bridge’s in form Coward is a contender for at minimum a podium placing, in August’s Lightweight Classic TT.

Newly confirmed Binch Racing team mate Adam McLean, who came close last year to Lightweight Classic honours, starts again one of the prime contenders for class honours.

Just like TT Privateers champion Coward, McLean will be TZ 250 Yamaha mounted in just over two months time, as will the third and final member of Birch Racing squad, 2015 Newcomers B Manx GP winner Gary Vines.

The epitome of a two stroke machinery specialist, 2018 Lightweight Manx GP race 2 runner up Vines has the undoubted capabilities to secure in August, a top five finish or better, as he aims to further embolden his already very accomplished Mountain Course racing CV.
