    The Aprilia engine is still in use on the racer. I think the engine has to be not more than 1000cc to race it. Also the street engine is 1200cc and cannot be used even if it was race ready. The best option is to keep with the Aprilia that they know is reliable and continue to develop the rest of the bike.

    That's impressive !!

    And there is actually another Norton connection there. Pete Hickman's dad Dave was a mechanic with the JPS team for years.

    So Ben, what’s it to be...?

    Is 5th place and no ‘iconic’ McPint ride enough?

    Or are you gonna keep the deposit until next year and hope that McPint does a ‘Hailwood’?
