Ferry Brouwer has confirmed he will be supporting the very first Classic TT Races in August next year, by entering his world famous Yamaha Classic Racing Team.
The team will contest the 250cc, Formula One and Formula Two Classic classes with racing pro, Allan Brew, leading the team in the 250cc and Formula Two Classic TT races. Three other current competitors will join Allan to contest the Formula One Classic TT. Steve Mercer, winner of the 2009 TT Newcomers Award will take to the track onboard a YEC spec. 750cc machine, with Mark Miller riding a 1986 Daytona 200 replica. Finally, Daniel Cooper will compete on a Yamaha 2-stroke machine.
Along with racing, the team will be putting together a complete line-up of parade machines and riders at the Classic TT. Ferry Brouwer said;
‘It’s been my dream for many years to see my bikes being raced and there’s nowhere other than the Classic TT Races and the TT Mountain Course that I would do this. We believe the plans that are being developed for this event will capture the hearts and minds of classic racing fans all around the world, and become the world’s biggest event for classic racing motorcycles. We are proud to be part of these exciting plans and can’t wait to get to the Island next August.’
