All at Harrison racing are looking forward to working with each other again as Chris Preston our long term valuable sponsor who has got us to where we are now is staying on board for another season.

2015 wasn’t the best of years with Nathan having a big blow early on due to circumstances out of our control but he is still recovering now and hoping to be back on a bike mid season if everything goes to plan but on the higher note Glenn had some noticeable performances with a 9th place finish in the senior with Personal lap speed of 117.5 mph after bad luck hampering him in the Shortened Junior MGP.

Glenn is going to be doing enough short circuits to qualify for his mountain course licence and then will go onto to the Southern 100, Post TT races and the main race of the year the Manx Grand Prix.
