Cameron Donald will return to the Classic TT in 2017 after agreeing to ride in the Junior Class for McIntosh Racing team.
The two-time TT winner and ITV pundit will ride a 350cc Manx Norton for Kiwi classic racing supremo Ken McIntosh.
Donald has been a regular at the Classic TT since the inaugural year in 2013 and finished second in that year’s Okells 350cc Classic TT behind race winner Chris Palmer riding an AJS 7R.
Riding the same machine, he finished fourth in 2016 just missing out on the podium but with a fastest lap in the class of 100.382mph. He will go in to the four-lap race, to be held on Bank Holiday Monday, August 28th, as a major contender for honours.
“I’ve really enjoyed the Classic TT since the outset and having missed riding at this year’s TT on the modern bikes, I am raring to go with Ken and the McIntosh Racing Team,” said Donald.
“I’ve worked with Ken on and off for a long time and I know how good his bikes are. It’s always going to be a hard up against the multi cylinder bikes, but these are races of attrition and with four consistently fast laps I hope to be close when the chequered flag goes out.”
