He’s also hoping to compete in the Bennetts Lightweight race, providing a suitable 650 steed is gained in time for TT 2018.

Younger brother Nathan who in recent years has battled back to race fitness, following an incident at Jurby in 2015, prior to his prospective Mountain Course debut at the Manx GP, first foray into closed roads competition will take place at the Post TT Races at Billown.

Alongside the roads, Nathan and Glenn’s 2018 race season is set to also include action at selected Thundersport meetings, and returns to the technical airfield circuit of Jurby.
