Classic TT: Herheim Racing Confirm Mountain Course Race Action Return

The Norwegian based Herheim Racing team have confirmed their intention to compete in this month’s Classic TT Races, sampling the four lap RST Superbike race.

The Herheim squadron ran by Arvid Herheim & Oyvind Herheim who used to work with the Mistral Racing team, have secured the services of Southern 100 Solo Championship runner-up Ryan Kneen, to pilot the outfit’s 1992 spec ZXR 750R Kawasaki.

2015 Formula 2 class victor, the Herheim team have great confidence in the Manxman’s capabilities and are quietly confident that he can bring the team a major result.

Ultra looking forward to venturing back to Manx shores, the Herheim brothers squad would like to pay tribute to team members no longer with us.

The late but great William Dunlop, the late but great James Cowton and the late but great Daley Mathison who was set to compete this August under the outfit’s banner.

Keen to honour the memory of their great racing friends, you cannot but have respect, admiration for the squad who despite all what’s happened remain committed to competing at the Classic TT Races.
