Saroléa confirm Johnston and Harrison for 2016 TT Zero

Belgian manufacturer Saroléa have confirmed that the experienced duo of Lee Johnston and Dean Harrison will line up on their Electric SP7 machine for the TT Zero race at the 2016 Isle of Man TT.

Johnston was a podium finisher last year on the Victory machine, and while the American team looked set to build on their performance, Johnston’s signing to Saroléa may confirm that they won’t return to the TT in 2016.

He’s joined by fellow fast rider and close friend Dean Harrison, who will make his electric machine debut on the exotic carbon fibre construction machine.

Using the name of the original Belgian manufacturer dating from the 1850s, the brand has been re-launched by brothers Torsten and Bjorn Robbens, great-nephews of a former Saroléa factory rider.

Building on their experience in space and military manufacturing and using exotic carbon fibre construction, the team first competed at the TT in 2014, with Scotsman Robert Wilson taking them to fifth and an average speed of 106.510mph in 2015.
