Hose and Swallow lead nearly 200-strong Pre-TT Classic entries

In Classic, News, Roads, Southern 100

CLASSIC stars Mike Hose and Bill Swallow are just some of the multi-time winners heading a brimmed entry list for this year’s Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic Road Races.

With 197 entries already in and just 10 days to go before the last call, organisers are set for a bumper few days of action in May.

Merseyside man Hose, the most successful rider in the event’s history with 18 victories to his name, is set for a busy assault with entries in six of the seven solo categories.

Meanwhile, Yorkshireman Swallow, who trails Hose’s overall tally by just two, will be out in four races bidding to overtake his rival in the all-time wins table.

Isle of Man TT rider Jamie Coward makes a return to the Colas Billown Course as he matches Swallow with four entries to his name, while former Pre-TT winners Keith Shannon, Steven Elliott, Steve Ferguson, Barrry Davidson and Meredydd Owen have also placed their bids for more trophies.

Eddy Wright and Kieran Clarke head the sidecar entries after dominating all three races last year, but other crews including Wally Saunders and Bob Dowty, Howard Langham and Doug Chandler, Tony Thirkell and Trevor Johnson and Andy Nourish and Nico Klinker are all out to topple the reigning champs.

Entries close on Saturday, 30 March.
