Dunlop and Honda pit Isle of Man TT legend against double British Touring Car Champion
· John McGuinness swaps Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP for BTCC Honda Civic Type R
· Gordon Shedden shows off his riding skills aboard Honda Racing’s TT winning machine
What happens when you pit double Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Champion Gordon Shedden against 23-time Isle of Man TT winner John McGuinness, head to head on each other’s race-winning machinery?
Dunlop and Honda jointly hosted the unique event at Knockhill circuit on Monday, which saw Gordon swap his Halfords Yuasa Racing Honda Civic Type R for John’s Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP for 30 laps of the Scottish track.
The two vehicles are very different – the number of wheels aside – but the similarities are the manufacturer brand and tyre manufacturer – Honda and Dunlop. The sportsmen are different too, but both are at the peak of their sport; capable of using the tyres to their maximum to achieve the best lap times. Whether that’s in a 27 lap race, over 21 miles against 31 other cars on a smooth race track, or a single 37.73-mile lap of the daunting Isle of Man TT Mountain course, held on closed public roads.
