The plan for TT 2017 for “Skoot” is to pilot his own teams YZF R6 Yamaha. He is also aiming to next year compete at the North West 200, Southern 100, Ulster Grand Prix and all Irish national meetings.
Alongside his YZF R6 Yamaha mount, additional machinery for 2017 comes in the form of CB Racing’s 125 and 250 machines, with action on teams 250, on the cards in the Lightweight Classic TT.
Commenting via his Facebook page, about his machinery line up, for the 2017 pure road racing season, Callum said:
“Very pleased to announce that I have everything sorted for the 2017 race season, me and my dad will be running our own Supersport 600 its a Yamaha R6 and it’s a real trick bike with the best suspension we also have a back up engine just in case. I am also riding the CB racing’s 125 and 250 next season too.
I will be looking after all 3 bikes at my race HQ it’s gonna be hard work but really looking forward to it! I am planning to do all the National road races on all 3 bikes and the North West 200, Isle of Man TT, Southern 100 and Ulster Grand Prix, also the Classic TT on board the 250.
Everyone that knows me knows how hard I work to go racing it’s gonna be tough but i’m up for the challenge. If anyone would like to advertise on all 3 bikes and the van please get in touch.”
