TT 2016 will mark Cameron Donald’s third TT Races with Norton. TT 2015 saw the 2008 superbike TT winner propel the SG4 Norton to highly creditable 18th place finish in RST superbike race.

Since returning to TT action in 2009, Norton have found the going tough getting back to the top at the most iconic of all road races.

In Cameron Donald and David Johnson they have two riders with proven pace, results, talent and ability.

It’s difficult to say what results will be achieved by Norton next year. One things for sure though the team will be giving it everything as they target results of the highest quality.
