Isn’t it great to say that the pure road racing hero that is Bruce Anstey, will be making a return to Mountain Course affiliated action next month at the Classic TT Races.
35 times an International Road Race winner, one of New Zealand’s greatest two wheel motorsport exponents, his outstanding, highly decorated TT CV includes 13 victories, 37 podium finishes in total and been the first racer in history to lap the Mountain Course, at in excess of the 132 mph lap mark.
Additionally a three times Classic TT winner, his event return in August sees him link up with long term backers Padgetts Racing (Milenco by Padgetts), to pilot RS 250 Honda machinery within the Dunlop Lightweight race.

A true hero in every sense of the word, the humble, hugely respected Anstey has shown courage, determination, fight and some in battling to get back to optimum race fitness.
Prior to aiming to enhance his already acclaimed Classic TT resume, he’s set to compete at Donington Park, sampling the two day Donington Classic Motorcycle Festival which takes place from the 3rd-4th of August.
