VRS Racing’s latest Manx GP expedition, has a distinct stars and stripes feel to it as Robbie Silvester’s outfit links up with racers from the USA.
20th in last month’s Bennetts Super Twins TT, ex-marine Pete Murray is leading the VRS charge in the Classic Superbike category.
Alongside the recent top 20 placing, the ever-enthusiastic Arizona based racer’s Mountain Course racing CV also includes a top 30 Classic TT finish, taking seventh in the 2015 Newcomers B Manx encounter.
New team-mate, former Pikes Peak International Hill Climb racer Adam Bauer, returns to the Manx for the first time since his event debut in 2017.
Due to race CBR 600 Honda tackle, Bauer is set to be the 48th different racer to compete under the VRS Racing banner.
Known for giving overseas, grass roots racers prime opportunities, VRS Racing epitomise the true spirit of the Manx Grand Prix, which reminder gets underway in below forty days-time on the 21st August.
