Talented Scot to make TT debut

Published: 05 December 2006

Talented Scot Keith Amor is set to make his TT debut with the Uel Duncan Racing Team, alongside Australian star Cameron Donald at next year’s Centenary races.

2005 Scottish Sports Production Champion Amor is one of the hottest properties in road racing at present, following scintillating performances at the North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix in Ireland.

Having made his debut at the North West 200 in 2005, he already has four top 10 finishes including a sixth place in this year’s Superstock Race, having qualified on the front row.

As an Ulster Grand Prix rookie last August, Amor was one of the riders of the week, winning the Newcomers Race and finishing in the top ten in all his races. A stunning fifth in the  Superstock Race was only eclipsed by his fastest lap speed of 126.272mph made him the fastest newcomer ever at the Dundrod Circuit, taking the honour away from new team mate Donald.

Amor, who will ride Hondas in all classes, said: “Doing the TT is the ultimate and a dream come true, so to get the chance to take part as a newcomer with an established team behind me, like Uel Duncan Racing is almost unbelievable.

“I aim to spend a lot of time on the Isle of Man learning the circuit on the run up to the event, and no doubt I will be able to learn a lot from my team boss Uel and my new team mate Cameron and I hope to acquit myself well.”
