Keith Amor will make his Classic TT debut in August

'I feel honoured to get the chance to make my debut on a classic bike with Tony Dunnell, who builds some of the best Manx Nortons around' - Keith Amor
Keith Amor has been confirmed to make his debut at the Classic TT Races in August.

Amor has come out of retirement this year and will ride for Ryan Farquhar's KMR Kawasaki team in the Lightweight class at the Isle of Man TT plus the Supersport races on the Site Sealants Honda for ex-mechanic Brian Hull.

The 42-year-old Falkirk man has now added the ClassicTT – held for the first time in 2013 – to his programme this year, when he will ride Nortons prepared by Tony Dunnell in the 500cc and 350cc races.

Former factory Honda rider Amor takes over the seat vacated by Manxman Conor Cummins, who rode for Team Dunnell last year.

Dunnell himself has a long association with the Isle of Man, first as a competitor in the Manx Grand Prix and, in later years, as a sponsor and entrant.

Amor said: “I was at the Classic TT last year and was gutted to see all the other guys having so much fun out there and I really wanted to be involved. In fact, it was one of the key reasons behind my decision to come back to racing.

“I feel honoured to get the chance to make my debut on a classic bike with Tony Dunnell, who builds some of the best Manx Nortons around.”

The Classic TT Races, presented by Bennetts, will take place from August 22-25 this year.
