Cameron Donald remains with Wilson Craig Honda in 2013

'We'll give it a really good go and I'm confident that we've got as good a chance as anyone around the Mountain Course' - Cameron Donald
Cameron Donald will challenge for honours at the Isle of Man TT under the Wilson Craig Honda banner again in 2013.

The Australian rider has committed to the Northern Ireland team for a third season.

Donald finished as the runner-up in the Superbike race at the TT in June behind John McGuinness and put the Mountain master under pressure for the lead in the opening laps.

He narrowly missed out on victory in the Supersport class, losing out to Bruce Anstey by less than one second after four laps of the 37.73-mile roads circuit.

Donald, a winner in the Superbike and Superstock races during a glorious season in 2008, knows the Honda Fireblade inside out and is aiming to set the bar higher again next year.

“This is now my third year with the team and we've gone really close at the Isle of Man in both 2011 and 2012,” he said.

“I've got a lot of history with Wilson and he has supported me for a large part of my career.

“We'll give it a really good go and I'm confident that we've got as good a chance as anyone around the Mountain Course.”

Team owner Craig has supported teams at the TT since 2005 and backed Uel Duncan's outfit in 2006, when Donald achieved a memorable runner-up place in that year's Senior race.

Paul Phillips, TT and Motorsport Development Manager, Isle of Man Government, said Donald was an excellent ambassador for the even.

“Cameron Donald and Wilson Craig Racing are a really
strong partnership and make no mistake they will be one of the teams to watch in 2013.

“Cameron has an excellent record on the Isle of Man and is a fantastic ambassador for the event internationally.”
