New York’s Murray Outlines TT 2018 Project

New York’s Pete Murray has recently outlined his plans for TT 2018, which is set to see him link up again with Robbie Silvester’s experienced VRS Racing team.

A TT debutant last year, he had the honour of been the only American competitor of TT 2017.

He went onto finish a very respectable 28th in the Bennetts Lightweight race, along the way over the four laps setting an average race speed of 105.394 mph.

Prior to sampling the TT Races, he recorded a string of solid results in his first two Manx Grand Prix campaign’s.

Seventh in the Newcomers B race of 2015, the following Super Twins race saw him finish 17th in front of many accomplished Mountain Course exponents and future event front runner Victor Lopez Santos.

31st in last years Superbike Classic TT, the American is hugely looking forward to TT 2018, which entry permitting will see him tackle alongside the Lightweight class on not surprisingly a ER6 Kawasaki, the Monster Energy Supersport races aboard the VRS CBR 600 Honda.

Following in the footsteps of great American TT competitors such as Mark Miller, Jimmy Moore and Dave Roper, the Arizona Speed Engineering backed racer has the added experience, team continuity and machinery, to this May contend at minimum for bronze replica finishes.
