Guy will go it alone on Honda Racing Blade

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

The Honda Racing squad will not re­place 23-times TT win­ner Mcguin­ness as he con­tin­ues to re­cover from his in­juries, de­spite ru­mours and spec­u­la­tion that Lee Johnston would step in to the gap left by his close friend.

“The de­ci­sion has been made not to re­place John, purely out of re­spect for his long-stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with Honda,” Honda con­firmed to MCN.

How­ever, while Mcguin­ness won’t be re­placed on his Su­per­bike, stand-in rid­ers have been an­nounced for both his Su­pers­port and TT Zero ma­chines, with Josh Brookes tak­ing on the CBR600RR at Jack­son Racing while 2016 race win­ner Bruce An­stey makes his re­turn to Mu­gen in the elec­tric bike race.
