SMITHS TRIUMPH TAKE ON TT
Smiths Racing are set to take on the Isle of Mann TT for the second time, running their factory-backed Daytona 675R's.
The team visited the island for the first time in 2014, running highly-experienced TT veterans Michael Rutter and Gary Johnson on race prepared Daytona 675Rs. In Smiths’ very first race on the 37 mile road circuit Gary Johnson took victory in race 1 of the 2014 Supersport class. Unfortunately, due to a crash in another class, Gary was unable to compete in the second supersport race, so the team returned to the UK with unfinished business.
Roll on a year and Smiths are back on the Island, ready to take on the supersport class with a new two-rider team – Aussie Dave Johnson and Britain’s very own Guy Martin. The most successful rider never to take a TT title, Martin is looking to the 675R to bring him his first-ever TT win.
A two week affair in total, final qualifying commences on Saturday 6th June and supersport races beginning 8th June.
