Norton Motorcycles has joined forces with Santander to sponsor Norton for this year's senior TT.

The Norton SG1 (pictured) will race in the senior TT on June 8, in Santander livery.

The SG1, which uses a V4 Aprilia engine and Spondon frame, will be ridden by Ian Mackman, who has had 24 races at the Isle of Man, with a best finishing position of ninth.

Stuart Garner, CEO, said: “Having a world class partner involved in our race team is a great show of confidence for the Norton brand, we now need to work hard and deliver the full potential this partnership has.

"We have a three year race plan and are fully focussed to develop the race team into a truly world class proposition”.
