Honda Motor Europe recently reavealed their All-Star TT Legends team who will be taking part in the upcoming 2013 Isle of Man TT race.
Spearheading the team will be none other than 19 time TT winner John McGuinness along with Michael Dunlop and Michael Rutter. Between them this three member All-Star team have won an insane 24 TT race victories. The Honda All Star team was unveiled at the ‘Motorcycle Live’ event on Sunday as McGuinness, Rutter and Dunlop took center stage along with TT commentator James Whitham.
The cherry on the cake has to be the fact that this All-Star team will also take part in the North West 200 event as well. Australian rider Cameron Donald and 2011 TT newcomer Simon Andrews will join the TT Legends team for the four-round Endurance World Championship. McGuinness and Rutter will also be completing in the four-man EWC rider line-up.
Speaking at the event, All-Star team manager Neil Tuxworth said, “We’re very pleased to have a really strong team both for World Endurance and the road races this year. Looking at the road racing, we’ve haven’t run a three-man squad for a number of years now. It’s quite significant that not only are we running three riders but we are bringing Michael Dunlop in as one of those three. He’s a young rider that already has three TT wins under his belt and we feel that he is the future of road racing. With Dunlop, McGuinness and Rutter – who of course have both been very successful on the roads – we have a very strong line-up for 2013.”
With such a phenomenal line-up this dream team is surely the one to watch out for at the 2013 Isle of Man and the 2013 North West 200 events.
