Norton and Works Racing

Posted on 28 May 2010 by The Manufacturer

Norton Motorcycles has chosen Works Racing Motor Cycles as its official historic racing partner to develop a range of parts for its Historic range.

This process will culminate in race-ready 30M and 40M specification motorcycles becoming available by the end of 2010. Complete engine assemblies are already available from stock.

In a statement from Norton, the company said: “There is no better way to prove a new racing model than to race it, and so a new team has been formed to do just that.” The Works-Norton team is contesting the 2010 Bonhams British Historic GP championship with an all new race bike, built to the exact specification of the last Manx model to leave the Norton factory on Bracebridge Street in 1962.

The 2003 FIM World Classic Champion, Glen English, is in the hot seat and has already demonstarted his class and that of the new bike, by winning the first six races of the series.
