Forty-two-year-old Anstey will take over the McIntosh Manx Norton from fellow TT star Cameron Donald, who recently rode the bike to victory in the New Zealand Classic TT, taking four victories from four starts. He followed that up by winning both the 500cc and Unlimited titles at Phillip Island in January.
Speaking about the tie up, Ken McIntosh commented: “When I heard about the plans for the new Classic TT I felt that we had to be a part of it, and with Cameron Donald already committed to ride another bike at the event, the suggestion came from Cameron himself that I couldn't get anyone better than Bruce Anstey to take over the reins. It’s a great honour for me to have New Zealand's most successful TT rider ever on our New Zealand built bike and we will be looking for a result right from the off.”
