2019 Senior TT winner Dean Harrison will feature in the upcoming, 100th Anniversary Manx Grand Prix, following confirmation of a deal with Key Racing, to race exotic 916 Ducati machinery.
A former Superbike TT lap-record holder, Harrison claimed podium finishes x6 during TT 2023, further bulking up his reputation as a TT Races ‘Alien’.
His prime Classic Superbike MGP race steed set to be fettled by crew chief, Russell Racing team-owner Alister Russell, Ducati tackle specialist John Cellier, is the same one that he enjoyed great success with at this month’s Oliver’s Mount, Cock O’The North meeting.
Incredibly despite no prior testing, jockeying the steed for the first time at Scarborough, the Bradford ace by the third timed lap of yesteryear SBK qualifying, bested his own existing class lap record.
Race wins time three would follow alongside more record exceeding pace.
Key Racing who will also have Italy’s Andrea Majola, competing under their banner, have every confidence that the triple TT winner, can increase next month his Mountain Course podium finishes tally.
