Cameron Donald returns to Wilson Craig Racing

Cameron Donald

Two-time Isle of Man TT race winner Cameron Donald will return to the Wilson Craig race team for this year’s road racing event.

The Australian last raced for the Northern Ireland-based team at the 2013 TT, and will compete in this year’s Superbike and Senior TT races on the team’s Honda CBR1000cc Superbike.

He will then switch to the Superstock-spec machine for the Superstock event before climbing onto the CBR 600RR machine for the two Supersport races.

On his return, Donald said: “I’ve signed with Wilson again to race at the front of the Superbike field.  He’s always prepared great bikes for me and I’m really comfortable with the team and see Wilson as a friend. 

“I know that I can still win races on the Isle of Man and riding for Wilson Craig Racing will give me every chance to have a go for the top spot in the big bike class as well as the other races.”

Wilson Craig has supported teams at the TT since 2005 and backed Uel Duncan’s team in 2006, which saw Cameron achieve a memorable runner-up place to John McGuinness in that year’s Senior TT Race, a year after his Mountain Course debut.

The pair were again reunited in 2011 when Cameron rode for Wilson’s own team and enjoyed notable successes with the highlights undoubtedly Cameron’s second place in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Superbike TT Races and his runner-up slot to Bruce Anstey by less than a second in the 2012  Supersport Race 1.

On the re-signing of Cameron, Craig said: “It’s no secret that I’ve always wanted to win a Superbike Race at the Isle of Man TT and with Cameron Donald riding for the team we’ve undoubtedly got a chance to win one. 

“We’ve got a real affinity with Cameron and he’s always been consistently challenging in every class when he’s raced for us.”

Tickets are now available for this year’s TT which gets underway on May 28.
