Aussie Ace Cameron Donald will ride for Norton at this summer’s TT.
It had looked like that two-time winner would sit out this year’s event, but the historic British manufacturer has confirmed Donald will campaign their bikes in the Dainese Superbike and PokerStars Senior TT races.
Cameron will start both from the number 19 position, made famous by the late Steve Hislop who took Norton’s last TT victory in the 1992 Senior.
Over the winter, Norton have secured the services of both Mick Grant and Steve Plater to aid further development and progress and by signing a proven campaigner Donald on a three-year deal, their intentions have clearly been set.
The former Wilson Craig man commented: ‘When Norton began talking to me about their plans for TT 2014 I knew it was an opportunity I didn’t want to miss. With the enthusiasm and experience of the Norton team behind me and ex-TT winners such as Mick Grant and Steve Plater now involved, this is sure to be an exciting year. Norton is synonymous with the Isle of Man TT and I can’t wait to ride the new SG3 round the Mountain Course and add to their Isle of Man history.’
