Dean Harrison is one of the most exciting new talents on the road-racing scene, achieving his debut TT podium in the 2013 Lightweight Race. He also took victory at the inaugural Classic TT, crossing the line first in the Motorsport Merchandise Formula Classic Race. Dean will ride in both the Bennetts 500cc and Okells 350cc Classic TT Races for Black Eagle Racing.

After Alan Oversby's defection to the Davis racing team without the common courtesy of even a phone call, we were left without a rider for the Isle of Man 350 race. Lee Johnston volunteered at very short notice to race the bike and agreed to test at Donnigton before the Isle of Man.
Having a great sense of humour and cheekiness was readily accepted by the rest of the team. We all hope he will be a permanent fixture with the black eagle racing team.

After years of involvement in the racing world, David and Mark Kay formed the Black Eagle Team in 2008. Given the high specification of their machines their race outings are limited, so a two rider effort at the Classic TT is a large commitment on their part and a major coup for the Classic TT.

 

 

 

 

 

Team Manager for the Black Eagle Race Team Brian Richards commented:

 

We visited the Classic TT this year and were very impressed with what we saw. It is clearly the event to be at and win, so we are coming armed with what we believe are the best possible machines with two top notch riders on board.

TT & Motorsport Development Manager Paul Phillips added:

 

We are delighted to welcome Black Eagle Racing to the Classic TT. People love to see and hear MV Agustas being ridden on the TT Course in anger and to have such a top quality team with two first rate riders is great news for the event. We are keen to make sure that the Classic TT continues to grow in 2014 from its successful first year and this news is evidence of this.
