The lead Privateer within the 2015 Lightweight Classic TT who finished a very respectable 11th in this years Senior Manx Grand Prix, went onto add:

“Together with the People’s Bike I feel hopeful and excited about the future, although I feel at home up to my nipples in grease and oil on the end of a spanner it will be ace to have the team there to share the load and relieve the pressure.

I’m really looking forward to blasting down Bray Hill on the BMW, returning safely with a smile, and to eat cake!! and to see the dog!!”
