SG1 / 2012 Race News
2012 saw Norton's return to the TT almost 20 years to the day in 1992 when Steve Hislop rode a Norton to victory in what is widely acknowledged as the greatest TT race of all time.
Motul Team Award
The team won the Motul Team award for Technical Excellence, a deserved achievement for the dedication of the Leicestershire based development and engineering team.
Isle of Man Government TT and Motorsport Development Manager Paul Phillips said, "This is a thoroughly deserved award and recognises the huge achievement that Norton has pulled off in building a bike in their British factory and qualifying the machine for the Senior TT. It is fantastic to have such a great name lining up on the grid and we look forward to them adding to their great TT record."
Unfortunately Ian Mackman missed out on his chance for glory, when the Isle of Man Senior TT race was cancelled on account of heavy rain for the first time in 105 years!
