Honda Racing’s Nathan Harrison is a confirmed non-starter for TT 2023, as he continues to recover from collarbone, radius injuries attained following an incident within the first Superstock race of last month’s FonaCAB & Nicholl Oils North West 200.
Speaking today via Honda Racing UK’s official website, he stated:
“I am obviously absolutely gutted to be missing my first race for Honda Racing UK at the TT, but in reality, this is the best decision for my health and safety, and for my future career.
If I rushed things then raced and caused further damage or went slow and finished outside of the top-15 I wouldn’t be doing myself justice.
I want to race at the TT 100% fit and healthy and achieve the results that I know I am capable of.
Thank you to Honda for the opportunity and for everything they have done up to this point. I look forward to continuing to build from here as the year progresses when I get back to full fitness.
My TT 2024 preparations begin now!
I’d also like to thank all of my sponsors, friends, family and the motorcycle community for their support.”
The Honda Racing UK squad also confirmed this evening that 23 times TT winner, John McGuinness MBE, will be their sole racer in the Superbike, Superstock, Senior races at this year’s TT Races.
