John Mcguin­ness will try to recre­ate some of his own TT his­tory when he races in the new 250cc Lightweight Clas­sic TT race in Au­gust.

The More­cambe man won his first TT in 1999 on a 250cc TSR Honda, set­ting a quar­ter-litre lap record of 118.29mph that still stands to this day.

“I re­mem­ber get­ting to the bot­tom of Bray Hill that day and say­ing to my­self ‘John, if you don’t win on this bike you are never go­ing to win a TT’,” he re­calls.

The 250s were phased out of the TT in 2004 but will make a re­turn to the Clas­sic event with Mcguin­ness set to ride a Honda.
