David Lumsden is all set to compete for Martin Bullock’s Full Factory Winners Wear team, at the 2016 Manx Grand Prix.

His line up of machinery for the two weeks competition around the Mountain Course is as follows, CBR 600 Honda for the junior race, ER6 Kawasaki for the super twins race and a GSX-R 750 Suzuki for the blue riband senior race.

Currently his best personal best finish at the Manx, is third place finish in the 2009 junior race, whilst another highlight was piloting Keith Amor’s KBMG Racing CBR 600 Honda, which he propelled to ninth place finish in the 2010 senior encounter.

The rider nicknamed “Hammer” made a return to competition at the Manx GP in 2015, as he embarked upon his first action at one of pure road racing’s most prestigious races, for the first time in four years.

Piloting Koru4u backed YZF R6 Yamaha he recorded twenty seventh and fourteenth place finishes, in the junior and senior races.

Main highlight of the meeting, was on the Full Factory Winners Wear ER6 Kawasaki, as he clinched an excellent sixth place finish in the super twins race.

Alongside the Manx, David is set to begins his 2016 roads campaign, at the Tandragee 100, which has attracted approximately 350 entries!

Since making his Mountain Course debut in 2008, he has gone onto establish himself as a highly accomplished competitor, around the most famous road racing circuit in the world.

He’s in contention for world class results a plenty at this years Manx Grand Prix, in particular in my opinion in the competitive super twins class.
