Bjorn Gunnarsson remains in the TC Racing fold for TT 2017, forming part of the teams Lightweight TT challenge.
Set for action on high spec ER6 Kawasaki machinery, Bjorn has in recent years excelled in the Super Twins class, around the Mountain Course.
This was illustrated in full at TT 2016, when he wrapped up a huge new personal best TT result, finishing in ninth place.
Since moving into TT competition in 2015, Bjorn has enjoyed sustained positive moments.

Planning to pilot his own teams S1000RR BMW in the Superbike, Superstock and Senior races at TT 2017, alongside the DP Coldplaning/TC Racing ER6 Kawasaki, it’s fair to say he has a high quality stable of machinery, for next years TT Races.
Regarded by many as Sweden’s leading pure road racer, he is also in my opinion at this moment in time, the overall leading roads exponent from Scandanavia.
Looking towards TT 2017, expect Bjorn to be at least contending for another top ten finish in the four lap Lightweight race, plus don’t discount him from springing a surprise or two in the 1000cc encounters.
