‘Tommy Club’ Member Lumsden Completes MBM’s 2018 Manx GP Rider Line Up

‘Tommy Club’ member David Lumsden will link up again with long time backers Martin Bullock Manxsport, piloting respectively the Full Factory Winners Wear backed CBR 600RR Honda and ER6 Kawasaki steeds in this years Junior, Lightweight and Senior Manx GP races.

Twice a Manx GP rostrum finisher, last year on the Mountain Course saw ‘The Hammer’ crack the magical 120 mph mark for the first time, lapping at an average speed of 120.956 on his way to an excellent fourth place finish in the Senior race.

A proven podium challenger in the Junior, Lightweight and Senior classes, it would not at all surprise many if the Skerries racer in August, scoops at minimum one race win.

Set for a fourth successive year competing in the Full Factory Winners Wear/MBM (Martin Bullock Manxsport) colours, the amiable racer alongside Dave Quine and new team mate Brendan Fargher, provides the local outfit, with one of the strongest Manx GP rider line up’s of recent years.

It’s good to see established outfits such as them, continuing to strongly support the Manx, which as stated on various occasions by me and many astute roads aficionados, consistently brings through and will continue for years to come, the TT stars of tomorrow.
