Road racing star Dean Harrison will return to action at Oliver’s Mount in July when he takes part in the Sheene Classic.
The circuit lap record holder, who is also the second fastest man around the Isle of Man, will be in evidence with his Silicone Kawasaki team and is, say track bosses, the first in a long list of star riders.
“I used to go as a lad with my dad, even my grandad raced at Oliver’s. It was always a family outing, fish and chips on the seafront after the racing. I love the place and can’t wait the get back to my local track,” said Harrison.
Harrison will be competing on his Silicone Engineering Racing Kawasaki ZXR 750, which he took to victory at the Classic TT last year. The Classic Superbikes category has seen huge interest since race entries opened last week with many riders looking forward to a ‘real roads’ event prior to the Classic TT.
