John Chapman Racing Unveil Star Filled Classic TT Line Up

John Chapman Racing have unveiled an all star line up, for the 2017 Classic TT Races.

As in 2016, Dan Kneen competes for the team, on RS 250 Honda machinery, within the Lightweight race. The Manxman is joined for the four lap race, by two times Lightweight TT winner Ivan Lintin.

Combined, the riders who have between six international road race victories, are a pretty much near certainty to provide John Chapman’s outfit, with a firm podium finishing challenge.

Same applies, to Ian Lougher within the Senior Classic class. The Welshman is set to pilot an immaculate 500 three cylinder MV Agusta, as he targets a second class crown.

Speaking, about his teams, world class rider line up, John Chapman stated:

“The Classic TT is the main event of our year and we are coming with three great lads for 2017. Ian Lougher is a legend and we have worked hard to rectify the problems we had with the MV Agusta last year and the bike is running really well.

Dan and Ivan are two of the best young riders at the TT at the moment and will do a good job for us with the 250 Honda’s in the Lightweight Race.

With the three riders we have, we are looking towards podium finishes for all of them.”
