Holden/Cain Switch To Yamaha Power For TT 2020

Silicone Barnes Racing’s John Holden/Lee Cain are set to switch to Yamaha power for the Sidecar races of TT 2020.

Runners up within the last six Sidecar TT encounters, Holden/Cain since first joining forces in 2017 have developed into one of the world’s leading driver/passenger partnerships.

Mixing vast experience with youth, huge ambition, raw talent, expert Mountain Course circuit knowledge, it’s a partnership which exudes quality.

If it wasn’t for the all conquering Birchall brothers Ben & Tom, Holden/Cain would have been six times successive TT winners and they know that on their day they have the credentials to give the Birchall’s more than something to think about.

With this in mind the switch to Yamaha engines, could prove the potent factor to take them to the next level in the hunt for TT success.

It’s worth noting that TT 2020 will mark 32 years since driver Holden first tackled the fabled, mythical Mountain Course.

Although now a veteran, the motivation is still there, the hunger remains and like Manx passenger Cain he possesses a huge will to win.
