SHAUN Anderson is gearing up for a return to the NW Racing squad for another international road racing assault this season.
The Northern Irishman will once again take the reins of Noel Williamson’s BMW for the big bike races as well as a Yamaha R6 for the Supersport scraps.
Anderson heads into 2020 fresh off his strongest Isle of Man TT to date with a 12th place finish in the blue riband Senior TT as well as a 16th in both the Superstock and Lightweight races, and believes it’s key to build on progress from this past year.
“I think 2019 was a solid season for us and we now have a great base to start from for 2020,” he said.
“The addition of a 600 to the stable will only give me more track time and miles, so hopefully I will be sharper and can push to the front.
“With one of the internationals in doubt this year [Ulster Grand Prix], it will put even more focus on the TT. But with great machinery, team members and my normal support crew around me, I am sure I have found a great place coming into the new season.”
Anderson is set to kick off his roads season at his home round of Tandragee in April just after a trip to race at Brno in the Czech Republic.
But the team, like many, await news on the Ulster GP. NW Racing bosses say they may head to the North West 200 to fill the calendar void should Dundrod not happen.
