After the breakup between John McGuinness and Norton, the RoadRacer was looking for a new team to compete on the Isle of Man TT with.
McGuinness has now signed to Quattro Plant Bournemouth Kawasaki. He will compete in the RST Superbike TT, RL360 Superstock TT and the Senior TT with a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR.
He is a legend of road racing and has already clinched 23 TT victories. Only Joey Dunlop often made it to the top of the podium. From 2004 to 2013, he held the record for the fastest lap time around the mountain course.
The last time, however, was on the podium in the Superbike classes in 2016. He finished third in the Superbike class and also in the senior race. In recent years, he had to deal with the effects of falls and even had to partially miss the TT.
“I’m delighted to be riding for Quattro Plant Bournemouth Kawasaki at the 2020 Isle of Man TT and their record on the island with James Hillier, in terms of both results and reliability, speaks for itself. With it being such a family-orientated team, it’s the perfect fit for me and they’re a highly reputable, professional team who have achieved great things on both the roads and the circuits.
Pete drove all the way up from Bournemouth to Morecambe to meet me and put the offer on the table and it didn’t take much for me to sign – it was an easy decision. Everything made perfect sense and we’ve put together a good plan that will put us in the best position possible. Joining Kawasaki and Pete’s team and riding the Ninja ZX-10RR at the TT is a new chapter for me, one I’m excited about and really looking forward to.”
Pete Extance, Team Owner, Bournemouth Kawasaki:
“It’s absolutely incredible news that we can welcome Isle of Man TT legend John McGuinness onto our Quattro Plant Bournemouth Kawasaki machinery. To me, John is Mr TT and what an honour it is to have our Bournemouth Kawasaki dealership associated with him.
We both know there’s a big job ahead of us to be ready for the new season but it’s one that we know will be great fun. Hopefully, we can put John McGuinness back on the podium at the Isle of Man TT, the place where we know he belongs.”
