2016 Newcomers A Manx GP third place finisher Wayne Humble is targeting series of returns to the rostrum, at this years Manx Grand Prix.
Wayne’s Mountain Course debut last year, was without a doubt an extremely successful one. Alongside third place in the Newcomers A race, he lapped in excess of 116 mph, plus was firmly in contention throughout for a top eight finish in the Junior race.
Having been involved in an incident at Governors Dip during the four lap race, Wayne has spent this winter been building his fitness back up, having made a strong recovery from injuries sustained in this crash.

Set to remain on YZF R6 Yamaha machinery with own team backed by Michelin, which Wayne can’t thank enough for their help and support, he feels he has unfinished business at the Manx, he said:
“I feel I have unfinished business at the Manx after my accident, all though I feel I am still a rookie, I feel I am ready to push for the podium again and also aiming for the 120 mph lap I was on for before the accident.”
His 2017 roads campaign, is set to begin at the Spring Cup National Road Races at Oliver’s Mount. Last April’s Spring Cup marked Wayne’s maiden voyage into roads competition.
Since then he has developed into an accomplished, highly touted roads competitor, tipped by many for top class moments a plenty in the future at Scarborough and around the Mountain Course.
