Commenting on Norton’s latest significant TT feat, this time with the sixth incarnation of the SG models, the SG6, Norton, MD, Stuart Garner, stated:
“I’m really pleased to win this award but it reflects exactly what we’ve strived to create at Norton, a team.
And that team is built not only from the two great riders that we have on our bikes and an excellent group of mechanics supporting them on event, but is also for every one of the people who work for us including all of the hard working people back at the factory who have helped us to get where we are today.”
Motorsport Co-ordinator for Motul, Leslie Raiwoit, added:
“At Motul performance is everything and we understand that there are a number of factors to delivering great results which Norton has undoubtedly achieved this year.
The team is very deserving winners of this year’s award which recognises not only where they are today but the journey they have taken to get here.”
