MSS Discovery signs Hutchinson for Macau.

MSS Discovery will return to the streets of Macau in November after announcing they have signed TT winner Ian Hutchinson to their team.

Hutchinson, one of the most renowned road racers in the country, will make the trip to the island for the legendary end of season event to ride one of two Kawasakis being entered by the Nick Morgan-led team.

He will be joined by Steve Allan, who currently holds the Supersport lap record and is a three-time winner of the event.

“We are delighted to announce that we have signed TT winner Ian Hutchinson who is currently one of strongest Pure Road Racers in the UK, and returning back to the Team is the 'likeable Scot' Steve Allan, who is current Supersport lap record holder and a 3 x winner of the event,” Morgan said.

“As a celebration of road racing, and simply what the true spirit of competition is, the Macau Grand Prix takes some beating. Mike Trimby, and the rest of the organisers both in the UK and on the peninsular of Macau, have always blended a professional true road race event with a degree of fun and entertainment sadly lacking in Europe's multi million pound racing circus”.

“Steve has not really played much part in UK racing this year. That said he is a proven winner at Macau and knows the circuit like the back of his hand. He understands just how far you can push on a track with little or no run-off and has a riding style that is both economical and measured – exactly what is needed for Supersport success”.

“Ian is Mr 110% and that is something we will have to channel if he is to dominate the big Superbike race. He'll be up against the likes of Rutter and McGuiness who are acknowledged Macau experts, but that neither daunts “Hutchy” or us. The way I see it there are perhaps less that half a dozen riders that can win the Superbike race at Macau and we have one of them – bring it on!”

:-oThought that Steve Allan had retired, I would guess he is having a run out at Silverstone or Brands Hatch before going to Macau? It would be risky to go there without any track time, particularly as he will be determined to win.......................... :?

This is real racing ! My prediction (if they all stay upright AND get rides) Plater, Rutter, Keith Amor, with McGuinness and Hutch close behind :)
