Having proved the dominant force in 2015’s Classic TT F1 race with a 1-2-3 podium finish, the Chippenham based wheel manufacturer is hoping for a repeat performance in 2016 from the riders racing on its wheels.
Dymag’s quest to have the fastest wheels on the Mountain Course will be led by 2015 Classic TT F1 winner Michael Dunlop, who will ride the Team Classic Suzuki XR69 on Dymag CH3 wheels as he attempts to secure back-to-back Classic TT wins.
He will be joined on the second Team Classic Suzuki XR69 - again fitted with the CH3 wheels - by former 125cc/Moto3 GP ace Danny Webb, drafted in as a last minute replacement for the recently injured Lee Johnston.
Michael Dunlop will also race his own Honda 250 R on Dymag’s UP7X wheels in the Classic TT 250 class.
As in 2015, he will be pressed hard in the Superbike category by last year’s runner-up Bruce Anstey, who will race the Padgetts Valvoline YZR500 Yamaha fitted with the UP7X wheels.
The line-up is completed by Greenall Racing team mates Horst Saiger and James Hillier, who will both race on 750cc ZXR Kawasaki machines, again fitted with the UP7X wheels.
Chris Shelley, Dymag’s Chief Executive, said: “It’s very exciting for Dymag to have such a strong set of riders racing on our wheels and we wish all the riders good luck for this year’s Classic TT.
“So far it’s been a fantastic year for Dymag at the Isle of Man TT, with Michael Dunlop creating history with the first sub-17 minute lap of the mountain course at an average lap record speed of 133.96mph, to win the Senior and Superbike TT ‘big bike double’ on our wheels back in June.
“We also had an historic 1-2-3 podium finish in the Classic TT in 2015, so it would be wonderful to maintain the run of success Dymag has enjoyed in the world’s most iconic road race.
“It’s a really good time for Dymag at the moment as we are winning a reputation for not only excellent products, but backing up the Dymag teams with first class technical service support and fast deliveries in the BSB and Road Racing community.”
The Dymag Isle of Man TT riders are part of an ever growing number of riders running on Dymag wheels across an array of championship series that includes the British and Irish Superbike Championships, Isle of Man Classic TT and Thundersport GB Golden Era Superbike championship.
Dymag is now the official sponsor of the Thundersport GB Golden Era Superbikes, with the new series titled as ‘The Dymag Golden Era Superbike Championship.’
The current Dymag Golden Era Superbike Championship is currently led by 2015 champion John Dieterman, who races on Dymag Carbon CA5 wheels.
