RAF Reserves Honda rider Simon Andrews has said he will concentrate less on outright speed at this year’s Isle of Man TT and more on the technical aspects of racing the Mountain.


Andrews qualified second for last weekend’s Pirelli National Superstock 1000 opener at Brands Hatch but slipped off chasing through the field after having to start from the back of the grid.


He will return to the TT after his horror smash at Graham’s last year where he seriously damaged his leg and shoulder. He joked this evening he would flip the corner the bird on his first lap through in 2013.


"I had a lot of conversations through the winter with Honda and we came up with this team. Coming back to the TT is something I need to do. I did the TT once and became addicted. I didn’t want to take a year out," said Andrews.


"I’m not going to stress about going fast. I will concentrate more on the technical aspects of the course and maybe learn some corner names instead of turning left at the pub and going through some squiggly bits."
