Michael who enjoyed a productive TT Races campaign with Bathams SMT Racing, which included an excellent fourth place finish in the Royal London 360 Superstock race, will also be in action on a MkII 500 Seeley G50 Matchless in the Senior race.
He’s joined in the team for Junior Classic TT action by 2008 Superbike and Superstock TT winner Cameron Donald, who will pilot a 350 AJS 7R.
Established amongst the leading classic TT teams, Ian Garbutt, Ripley Land Racing, Team Owner, is confident his team will enjoy series of podium finishes.
“We are really looking forward to the Classic TT with two riders on board who are able to get the very best out of a classic racing machine.
The quality of both the machines and riders across the Classic TT continues to rise but we believe that we have what it takes to contest for places on the podium in both the Senior and Junior Races.”
