All your road racing dates for 2013
12 December 2012
The North West 200, Isle of Man TT and Ulster Grand Prix continue to run in their traditional calendar slots in May, June and August next year, when a host of top riders and teams have already been confirmed for the events.
The Honda TT Legends team will contest the North West 200 and Isle of Man TT with John McGuinness, Michael Rutter and Michael Dunlop, but misses the Ulster GP due to a date clash with a round of the Endurance World Championship.
However, Dunlop will still compete at Dundrod on his Honda Fireblade, which took him to a double in the Superbike class this year at the meeting.
Tyco Suzuki's Guy Martin, William Dunlop on the Milwaukee Yamaha machines, Wilson Craig Honda rider Cameron Donald, plus Gary Johnson, Conor Cummins and Bruce Anstey will lock horns once again in the battle for supremacy on the roads.
British Superbike star Josh Brookes will make his debut at the TT on the Tyco Suzuki and is also a possible starter at the North West 200, where Alastair Seeley remains the man to beat on the Gearlink and MSS Kawasaki machines.
A number of additions to the Irish road racing calendar include the return of the Kells races on July 20-21 along with the Athea and Munster events, scheduled to take place in August.APRILSpring National, Scarborough
