Forest Dunn revving up for TT 2016
Tuesday, March 08, 2016
Cornwall’s Forest Dunn is to make TT Mountain Course debut at the 2016 Isle Of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy.
The Falmouth rider, who will ride for his own Forest Dunn Racing team, will compete in the RL360 Superstock, RST Superbike and PokerStars Senior TT Races on his Superstock Spec Kawasaki ZX10R with different livery for each race as he has backing from Infinity Security, BMA Carbon and Maen Carn Concrete products respectively for his TT 2016 campaign.
28-year-old Forest started racing in 2012 and has won Hottrax Eundrance and ‘No Limits’ Racing Series. His career highlights include 20th placed finishes in Superbike and Superstock races at NW200 on his debut in 2015.
Forest will be spending a number of days on the Isle of Man in the run up to this year’s TT Races in preparation for his debut as part of the Newcomers programme, learning from the TT rider liaison officers as he prepares to fulfil his lifelong ambition.
On hearing the news that his race entry for the 2016 Isle of Man TT Races had been accepted he said:
“To say I am buzzing is an understatement, I always aimed to race at the TT before I was 30, and thanks to my hard work and the help of my loyal sponsors it’s happening this year! I can’t thank Paul Phillips and the TT organising team enough for the chance to show what I am capable of.”
“I have had a few folk behind the scenes making this all happen - Craig at CMR Performance, Infinitus Security, Ward Groupage Newry, LaserMaster, Southwest Motorcycles, Bennetts Gardens Barry and Dolina Hughes and SR Electrical and BMA Carbon, all of whom have provided help over this winter to make both myself and the bike the best we can be, I will be spending several weekends over on the island between now and practice week soaking up the knowledge of rider liaison officers Milky Quayle and Johnny Barton.”
