Back to where it all began for classic 250 title chase
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.
