NORTH WEST WILL BE MOMENT OF TRUTH
John Mcguinness’s first race on the new Fireblade will be at the North West 200 next week.
ÒI am looking forward to it.ó the six-times winner at the Northern Irish event says.
Òsome people say the North West is a shake up for the TT but is it f**k! It’s a proper straight race from a mass start, not like the TT. I’ve had some great ding dongs there with the best road racers in the world and some BSB boys too. Anything can happen.ó It will also be a stern test for his new Honda Racing superbike.
Òit’s all about power at the North West but if you can hang in the slipstream and get dragged along you can run at the front.ó Mcguinness says. ÒI was clocked through the speed trap at 204mph last year and we have more power this year so we should be faster. There is no reason why we can’t run at the sharp end.ó
