Norton at the 2014 TT races.
June 12 2014
Now we’re all back and the dust has settled we can look back at our 2014 TT.
The team had two all new SG3 bikes and a new rider in Cameron Donald, with Mick Grant and Steve Plater brought in to help with bike setup and development.
After some big changes in setup during practice week we went into the first Superbike race on the back foot a little bit. We had been chasing some rear end set up issues all week, they only showed up on the incredibly demanding TT course and had not been found at all on short circuit testing.
