Norton Motorcycles has renewed its contract with Cameron Donald for the 2015 Isle of Man TT Races.

Norton has also renewed the services of both Mick Grant and Steve Plater to aid further development and progress of the SG3 Norton throughout 2015. Meanwhile Donald has also got Norton factory approval to ride another class at the 2015 TT in order to keep bike fit and get maximum track time. An announcement is expected shortly on Cameron’s chosen ride.

Donald, who claimed a Superbike-Superstock double victory in 2008, said: “After a solid but frustrating 2014 where we made great progress with the bike but didn’t show it’s full potential we all agreed to keep the team together for 2015. Norton has pushed hard within the factory over winter, their engineering department has made many changes to SG3. With the enthusiasm and experience of the Norton team behind me and ex TT winners such as Mick Grant and Steve Plater involved again, we’re all looking forward to a great TT. Norton is synonymous with the Isle of Man TT and I can’t wait to ride the newly developed SG3 round the Mountain Course.”

Norton boss Stuart Garner was equally pleased to see the partnership extended. He said: “Cameron did a great job for us last year, both in riding talent and development work with the factory. The continuity a further year with the identical team cannot be under estimated. It’s a huge ask to build a bike from scratch to compete against the world’s best road racers, the world’s best bikes at the world’s toughest race!  To do this we need world-class talent and in Cameron we have this. We also get a great brand ambassador for Norton, his support, feedback and presence within the team are hugely important to us, both as a company and a race team.”
