Keith Amor planning road racing comeback

2 July 2013

Scotland's Keith Amor is set to make a sensational return to road racing in 2014.

Amor announced his retirement from the sport in January 2012, pulling out of competitive action due to a troublesome shoulder injury.

The 41-year-old is a former winner at the North West 200 and Ulster GP, where he claimed a race win in the Supersport class in 2010.

Ulster Grand Prix clerk of the course, Noel Johnston, said Amor had even intended to compete at Dundrod next month, but has put his plans on hold until next year.

“He had been planning to be at Dundrod this year but it it's now on hold until next year,” said Johnston.

“He had some good wins there in the past and he'll be a welcome face in the paddock next summer.”

Amor has finished on the podium at the TT five times, including a runner-up result in the first Supersport race in 2011.

He rode alongside John McGuinness in the Honda TT Legends team during his final season in 2011.

At the official launch of the Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix in Belfast today, Cameron Donald was confirmed on the entry list on Wilson Craig's Hondas after missing the race last year.

Dean Harrison and Gary Johnson will also compete at Dundrod.

Last month, Michael Dunlop confirmed he would ride the Honda TT Legends Superbike at the Ulster Grand Prix, which is the third major international road race of the season.
