Aussie Duo to Take on Isle of Man TT – David Johnson and Cam Donald will take on the legendary track next year.

Norton has confirmed that Adelaide rider, David Johnson, will team up with fellow Aussie, Cam Donald, for Norton’s assault on the 2016 Isle of Man TT.

The Aussie duo will compete in the RST Superbike and PokerStars Senior TT on Norton SG5’s.

Cameron made his TT debut in 2005 finishing as the fastest newcomer, and was runner up in the Senior TT in 2006. He won both the Superbike and Superstock races in 2008, and joined the Norton team in 2014.

David first competed in 2010 winning the Newcomers Trophy. His highest placing was 4th in the 2014 RL360 Superstock Race and he has a number of top ten finishes as well. His fastest lap of 131.595 mph in 2015 makes him the 9th fastest rider in history.

Stuart Garner, CEO of Norton Motorcycles, said “We’ve made incredible progress since taking Norton back to the TT and it’s testament to the hard work that’s gone in by everyone at the factory as well as the feedback that we’ve had from Cameron.”

That progress is what has drawn David Johnson to the brand. “It was the sheer power of the Norton at this year’s TT that got me interested,” Johnson said.

The team will be supported by yet another Australian, veteran British Superbike racer Glenn Richards has joined the team as a test rider.
