Josh Brookes will be back to ride the Classic TT this year with the Wiz Norton Racing Team. Returning for a second year, alongside Richard Wilson to ride the WRS 588 Norton Rotary based on the JPS works Motorcycle produced for racing in 1989-1994.
‘‘I’m looking forward to being back at The Classic. I enjoy riding the bike because the rotary engine is something i’ve had a keen interest in for years. Even the noise of it is unique and it seems to always have a big following of the fans. My goal this year is to match the 123.3mph lap time of Steve Hislop in 1992 when he won one of the memorable TT races of all time.”
Josh will race the Classic Superbike Race on UK Bank holiday Monday 27th August.
I’m pleased to let you all know that I have re-signed with Norton for 2018. I’m really looking forward to another year with them because it will be my second consecutive year on the same bike, following the 2 year absence. I’m excited to go back to the Isle of Man and race again and I hope to be able to improve my best lap time and race positions.
I really enjoyed working with the Norton bike, brand and whole team last year so I’m looking forward to being part of that again. Last year there were alot of changes to the bike in the lead up to the TT, whereas this year it should be much easier for me and the team. The changes made this year will be more fine tuning and adapting some small updates of the bike, rather than the bigger changes that I was making last year to accustom myself to a brand new motorbike.
That makes it more exciting to think about this years races. It should allow us to be in a better position and allow me to focus on the results that I can achieve. Also this year my BSB Crew Chief Stewart Winton will be working with Norton and myself in the build up to the event and during the event, so that should add another element of improving the chances of success.
This week it’s straight from Cadwell Park BSB to the Isle of Man Classic TT. Where I will make my debut on the Wiz Norton Rotary and the Team Winfield Paton.
