Deal done with Ryan Farquhar
Australian Josh Brookes has signed a last minute deal to compete in the Bennetts Lightweight TT.
The 33 year old has added to his Norton rides after agreeing a deal with Ryan Farquhar and his IEG/KMR Kawasaki team.
He takes over the bike originally earmarked for Hudson Kennaugh who has withdrawn from the meeting.
Michael Rutter rode the bike at the recent North West 200 taking a victory and a second place.
Brookes will join a strong line-up at KMR alongside Lee Johnston, Peter Hickman and Danny Webb.
