Manxman Lee Cain is teaming up with two times TT winner John Holden, for action in the Sure Sidecar races at TT 2017.
This new combination, marks significant changes for both driver and passenger, who are set to compete next year under the Silicone Engineering Racing banner.
TT 2017 will mark the first time in 11 years that Andy Winkle will not join John Holden for competition, on the Mountain Course.
Their illustrious partnership, yielded two TT victories, plus in total 12 podium finishes.
For Lee Cain long term passenger to Karl Bennett, this new opportunity with John will prove in my opinion, a landmark moment in his TT Races career, as he links up with one of the most highly respected and successful Sidecar drivers in the business.
Combined Lee and John, form one of the most eye catching Sidecar teams for TT 2017, with a blend of rising star status inked with race winning quality.
Set to be Honda powered for next years TT Races, they will start amongst the firm pre race favourites, in the Sure Sidecar encounters.
