Gavin Hunt revs up for TT bow

'It's great to see a local rider coming through to make his debut ... I'm sure he's going to be one to watch in future years" - Paul Phillips
Manx rider Gavin Hunt will make his debut at the Isle of Man TT races in June.

Hunt will compete in the Superbike, Superstock and Senior races on a Kawasaki ZX-10R.

The 26-year-old, the son of former TT rider and Senior Manx Grand Prix winner Paul Hunt, has spent much of his career on the short circuits to date, mostly in the British Superstock 1000 class.

He has previously raced at the North West 200 where he made his debut in 2010, finishing 15th in the Superstock event.

Hunt will ride in the JAR Kawasaki colours at the TT as he follows in the footsteps of his father, who will be on hand to provide expert tutelage.

Paul Phillips, TT and Motorsport Manager, Isle of Man Government, said: “Gavin has been one of the Isle of Man's most promising riders for a few years now.

“It's great to see a local rider coming through to make his debut on the Mountain Course and I'm sure he's going to be one to watch in future years.”
