Cameron Donald will make his return to the Classic TT as a starter in the Sure Junior Classic TT race with the McIntosh team. He will ride a 350cc Manx Norton, run by Ken McIntosh.
Donald competed regularly at the Classic TT, finishing second in 2013 in the Okells 350cc Classic race, behind race winner Chris Palmer riding an AJS 7R. In 2016, he finished fourth on the same machinery, setting the fastest lap of 100.382mph.
McIntosh has been a firm supporter of the Classic TT, initially running fellow Australian Bruce Anstey on his 500cc Manx Norton. He retired in 2013, but came back the following year to take a third place, lapping in excess of 108mph. McIntosh’s expertise is second to none, and if anyone can give Donald a machine that can win, it’s him.
Speaking of the Classic TT and working with McIntosh, Donald said:
“I’ve really enjoyed the Classic TT since the outset and having missed riding at this year’s TT on the modern bikes, I am raring to go with Ken and the McIntosh Racing Team.
“I’ve worked with Ken on and off for a long time and I know how good his bikes are. It’s always going to be a hard up against the multi cylinder bikes, but these are races of attrition and with four consistently fast laps I hope to be close when the chequered flag goes out.”
