Richard Vuillermet’s main objective, on the roads in 2017, is competition for the second time, at the Manx Grand Prix.

Last year saw Richard compete for the first time around the world famous Mountain Course. His maiden Manx GP appearance, went onto provide him with a very creditable 12th place finish, in the Newcomers A race.

Having accomplished a long held ambition of competing on the famous Manx roads in 2015, he is planning for a second two week racing campaign in the Isle of Man.
