Team Timloc and Phil Harvey are looking forward to getting out on the track tomorrow at the 2013 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy after sitting out the first Lightweight session.
Harvey is representing Goole based Timloc Building Products at this year’s races and is the company's Technical Director, responsible for new product development and the day-to-day running of the technical department.
He made his TT debut in 1995 and has a highest TT race finish of 10th in the 1999 Ultralightweight race. He also finished on the podium in the 2011 Manx Grand Prix SuperTwin race.
With 23 years of experience now under his belt, and only a handful of races missed due to injury, Phil has enjoyed a range of successes so far. He explains: “I got my first bike racing wins in 1992 then I quickly moved up the ranks to British Championship level. I gave up circuit racing around 1998 and started pure road racing at events like Scarborough, Ireland and the Isle of Man, simply because it helped to finance my racing. My greatest achievements include podium positions at the North West 200, Manx GP, Southern 100, Scarborough and Aberdare Park.”
Although he has competed in the Isle of Man TT in previous years, he had a recent break from the event and returned to the Manx GP achieving a great podium place.
Phil believes that the TT offers him a unique opportunity to achieve personal ambitions in a sport he is so passionate about.
Phil continues: “The 600cc Supersport race will have massive competition of all nationalities, but my number one priority is to stay safe while riding hard and fast, I have a personal ambition to lap at an average of 120mph, which I’m confident will secure me a great position.”
Phil is being sponsored by Timloc and its sister companies Alumasc Rainwater, Harmer Drainage, Pendock and GATIC, who are all proudly displayed on his bike livery.
