Silicone Engineering Racing Set For Oliver’s Mount Debut

Silicone Engineering Racing are all set to make their Oliver’s Mount debut, at the Bob Smith Spring Cup Road Races.

Having moved from Mar Train Racing to the team which in 2015 tasted senior Manx Grand Prix success with Malachi Mitchell Thomas, Reigning Steve Henshaw international gold cup winner Dean Harrison is set to begin his 2016 roads season at the spring cup.


One of the modern day greats around the mount, he’s all set to pilot the teams ZX6R and ZX10R Kawasaki’s as he bids to secure for the first time spring cup feature race victory.

Last year saw the 2014 lightweight TT winner endure a problematic year with the new YZF R1M Yamaha, there was some positive moments including his memorable Steve Henshaw international gold cup triumph.

Throughout 2016 he will be in action on another highly anticipated new machine, the latest ZX10R Kawasaki.

Dean has an excellent record on Kawasaki machinery around Scarborough. Main highlights with the iconic marque widely associated with striking green colour schemes include, back to back Cock Of The North feature race victories in 2013 and 2014.

Plus 2013 Darran Lindsay trophy superbike victory and finishing runner up in the gold cup in 2012.


Already a Barry Sheene trophy, Cock Of The North feature race, Darran Lindsay Trophy, David Jefferies Cup and Steve Henshaw international gold cup winner, there’s not much Dean Harrison has not won around Oliver’s Mount.

One of the few major trophies he has not held before at the iconic road race circuit, is the spring cup.

This could very well change on the 16th to the 17th of April, as he bids to give himself and Silicone Engineering Racing the perfect start to the 2016 pure road racing season.
