‘We will run at the TT’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

De­spite their North West 200 with­drawal and not yet know­ing the cause of Mcguin­ness’ crash, team boss Twel­ve­trees as­sured MCN that Honda have no plans to with­draw Guy Martin from the 2017 Isle of Man TT, which gets un­der­way next week.

“We will run at the TT,” he said. “That is our ob­jec­tive. Of course, we will go back, fig­ure out what hap­pened, make our counter mea­sures and we will be there.”

The team wouldn’t be drawn on whether they’d re­place 45-year- old Mcguin­ness for the event, but with Guy Martin se­verely off the pace on both the new Fire­blade and the CBR600RR at not only the North West 200 but also Tan­dragee, Cook­stown and Scar­bor­ough, get­ting a re­place­ment for Mcguin­ness would clearly bol­ster their chances of suc­cess. MCN un­der­stands Honda bosses ap­proached Cameron Don­ald about the pos­si­bil­ity of re­plac­ing Mcguin­ness at the TT but the Aussie turned them down.
