We have been successful with our entry for the Lightweight TT class on a Kawasaki ER 650 Super Twin and will be running the number 58!

This a dream come true for Lee, and just shows if you put your mind to something, doesn’t matter how big or small, you can achieve your dreams if you put the hard work in.

This would also not be possible to achieve if it wasn’t for all our sponsors new and old from the last 4 years. So this has been a big team effort to get the chance to race on the big stage.”
