Silicone Kawasaki’s Dean Harrison is planning to give Michael Dunlop a hard time in the 2017 Superbike Classic TT on the team’s ZXR750 which have been allowed to run bigger-bore engines to cut the power deficit to the Irishman 1200cc Suzuki.
Last year saw Harrison finish second in the Motorsport Merchandise Superbike Race having lapped at 125.512mph only to be removed from the results due to an oversize engine and he’s keen to make amends this time around and challenge the likes of Michael Dunlop and Bruce Anstey for the race win.
“The whole team is really looking forward to the Classic TT again this year. I’ve loved it since day one and the team have really started to embrace it too. The TT was really good for us this year and hopefully the Classic TT will be more of the same,” said Harrison.
“The Kawasaki ZXR750 is a strong package and hopefully we can give Michael a run for his money on the big Suzuki, but it’s a strong entry and there are going to be a lot of potential winners.”
