Speaking on his return to racing Sayle said, “I’m counting down the days until I will be back on the grid at Billown for the Pre-TT Classic Races.

“It has been a long haul since last August, but my determination never deserted me, even at my lowest point to race again and now that i have been discharged from Nobles, I am getting back into a training routine to ensure I am fully fit for May”

“It was no surprise to me to receive not one but two entries from Dan, he made it clear to everyone that he was going to race again despite the serious injuries he sustained in last years Classic TT and he has proved will power and determination can prove any doubters wrong.” added Rachel Palmer who is the Assistant Race Secretary.

We all look forward to seeing Dan Sayle back at Billown for the Blackfords Pre-TT Classic Road Races and the Colas Post TT Road Races and wish him safe and enjoyable racing” 

Sayle who is no stranger to road racing is currently joint first in the standings for most wins as a sidecar passenger at the Isle of Man TT Road Races with eight wins to his name.
