2009 Senior Manx GP winner Michael Russell is linking up with Dave “Salty” Sellers, for competition in the Superbike Classic TT.
In an example of the great generosity that exists within the pure road racing fraternity, the PRF Racing rider has given up his seat on his teams DSR Racing ZXR 750 Kawasaki, to allow “Jack Russell” to pilot it in August.
A recent eighth place finisher within the Ellan Vannin Fuels Senior race at the Southern 100, Michael is looking forward to working with “Salty” at the Classic.
With Mountain Course experience/knowledge in spades combined, don’t be surprised to see enthusiastic duo rewarded with a top ten finish or better.

They are also considering working together in 2018, as part of a full scale real roads campaign.
Reminder the fifth running of the Classic TT Races, which retains title sponsorship from Bennetts, begins on the 19th of August.
