Davies Motorsport Confirm Herbertson For Pre TT Classic, Junior Classic TT

Maintaining a combination that last year yielded a string of first class results, Davies Motorsport have re signed rising roads star Dominic Herbertson for yesteryear competition in May/August, at the Pre TT Classic and Classic TT race meetings.

Established as one of the leading suppliers of classic Honda machinery, John Davies team in 2017 enjoyed another successful summer stint on the Isle of Man, which included Newcastle upon Tyne’s Herbertson making an impressive debut aboard the teams silver, red and yellow liveried Honda’s.

Fifth and fourth within last August’s Senior/Junior Classic TT encounters, the popular racer is looking forward to joining forces again with Davies Motorsport, who thus far are confirmed to run him on a new Tab Replica 350K4 Honda.

Competing last year alongside yesteryear racing specialist Alan Oversby, it’s not clear at present as to whether he will have a team mate this summer at the Pre TT Classic and Classic TT events.

One things for sure though in relation to action this year on the Manx roads, the combination of the proven Davies Honda’s and the rising ability of next generation racer Herbertson, is certain to prove again mutually beneficial for both team and rider, as both target more top draw results at Billown and on the fabled Mountain Course.
