ANSTEY TO DEMO BRITTEN AT CLASSIC TT IN AUGUST


Nine time TT race winner Bruce Anstey, is set to parade fellow Kiwi Kevin Grant's Britten V1000 at the Isle of Man Classic TT meeting in August this year.

The historic bike is one of only ten made and will be a return of sorts for the bike - which was ridden by the late Nick Jefferies in the 1994 Senior TT, recording a standing start lap of 118mph. Kiwi GP great Hugh Anderson (pictured) has also demoed a Britten at the IoM.

Anstey will parade the machine as part of the Classic TT Lap of Honour on Monday 26th August as part of the inaugural Classic TT Races.
Commenting on the announcement bike owner Kevin Grant told Kiwi Rider;

"Once I'd decided to bring the bike over for the parade there was only one rider that I wanted to ride the bike. It's entirely fitting that a bike so closely linked to New Zealand and the Isle of Man TT should have the country's most successful TT rider Bruce Anstey parading on the Mountain Course."
Anstey is also looking forward to the opportunity.
"It's going to be a real pleasure to ride a New Zealand-built bike on the Isle of Man. The Britten is one of the country's greatest achievements. I'm really looking forward to taking it round the Mountain Course and I'm sure that fans will really enjoy the spectacle and sound of the machine."
