Norton

Another insult to our intelligence. Will the bikes be thinly disguised Aprilia RSV4's with

Trevor Nation cladding again??. I can't be the only person fed up with another nail in the coffin of a once glorious mark.The Isle Of Man organisers(Paul Phillips) duped again.

Noooo

Lets get some reliable bikes on the road Mr Garner and cut the waiting list before you indulge in your racing fantasy. Racing is expensive, it will bring down Norton. Please don't do it.

Ian Mackman

A great rider. Will get a 125MPH Lap soon.

Definitely a top 10 contender, maybe better.

Not a Norton?

Hmm, wasn't so long ago Aprilla were buying engines in, and Ducati are buying frames, makes perfect sense to buy a proven engine to start with, then build your own later. We need as many teams as possible to want to compete so Good luck to Norton. The TT is a great advertising vehicle so money well spent if they can get the results.
