Classic TT set to shine

The Isle of Man’s Classic TT’s star continues on its ascension, with a number of high-profile riders set to compete at this year’s event.

With qualifying beginning on August 27, it’s anyone’s guess as to who will be gracing the podium in any of the races, given the impressive line-up of previous winners and TT stars.

John McGuinness will be piloting the Winfield Paton, on which the 23-time TT winner won the Senior in 2016 and ’18, while the team will also be fielding Michael Rutter on a Harris FJ1200 in the four-lap RST Superbike race.

Hebden Bridge resident Jamie Coward will not only be aboard the 350cc and 500cc Craven Hondas in the Junior and Senior Classic races, but also a ZXR750 in the Superbike race, so is set to improve on his tally of five podium places, although this year’s machinery will prevent him from improving on his fastest-ever lap on a British-built single, of 110.057mph.
