Respectively 2nd, 4th within the most recent Lightweight TT encounters, they have the talent, pace, determination, team around them and most of all ideal machinery, to in my opinion contend for top five finishes at the seventh Classic TT extravaganza.

Jordan, McGee are the latest in a growing list of star names to confirm their entries for the latest incarnation of the Superbike Classic TT.

At a glance just some of the additional world class International road racing talent, Mountain Course bound in August include Team York Suzuki’s Gary Johnson/Sam West and new Team ACR (Alasdair Cowan Racing) signing, third place finisher in this month’s Royal London 360 Superstock TT, David Johnson.
