TT star Conor Cummins has confirmed that he will contest the inaugural 500cc and 350cc Classic TT Races on board Manx Nortons built and prepared by Tony Dunnell, one of the most respected classic bike builders in the UK...
The Ramsey Rocket was one of the first contemporary TT stars to show his support for the new Classic TT, signing up for the Formula 1 Race where he will ride an XR69 Suzuki for Team Classic Suzuki as team mate to fellow TT star Michael Dunlop. Adding his name to the provisional entry list for the 500cc and 350cc Classic TT Races, the Superbike TT Lap Record Holder's entry adds further spice to an already mouth watering line up.
Tony Dunnell has a long association with the Isle of Man first as a competitor in the Manx Grand Prix and in later years as a sponsor and entrant. The Classic TT sees Tony return to race on the Isle of Man for the first time since 2009, and he will be providing Conor with the latest specification 500cc and 350cc Manx Nortons along with spare bikes for each class.
Commenting on the news, Conor said: "I'm delighted to have been given the chance by Tony to ride his immaculate bikes, and it's great to be able to ride in all three races. It's going to be quite a challenge getting used to all these new bikes, but I'm lucky to have been asked to ride some of the best machines around and I want to reward the support being put in me with some top results."
