Former Newcomers A Manx GP runner up Shaun Anderson, has entered the 300 Curves of Gustav Havel meeting at Horice in the Czech Republic, as he continues his preparation for his sixth TT Races campaign.
Set to gain track time a plenty ahead of his upcoming Mountain Course voyage, Shaun has already impressed many this season, following his excellent performances at the 57th Tandragee 100 and the famous Landshaag hill climb event, in Austria.
Tandragee saw Shaun take his new GSX-R 1000 Suzuki steed, to a very creditable seventh place finish, the result made even more notable given that the bike, literally looked showroom fresh! indicating how new the machine was.

Following his exploits back home, he went onto impress on his debut at the Landshaag hill climb which is arguably at present the nearest meeting that comes close, to a pure roads nature in Austria.
Finishing eighth quickest in the 1000cc class, the GSX-R 750 Suzuki steed he took to this accomplishment, will soon grace another high profile event in Continental Europe, with the 750 entered in the Superbike races at Horice.
Alongside big bike action at one of the Czech Republic’s most famous roads events, the Super Mono class sees Shaun set to compete on the Kramer Motorcycles HKR EVO2.
In my opinion a dark horse for TT Privateers championship success at TT 2017, Shaun’s participation at the 300 Curves of Gustav Havel meet, adds an additional touch of UK real road racing quality, to the event which also sees Dan Kneen and Danny Webb set to make their debut’s.
