Crowe gets Honda backing

Manx sidecar ace Nick Crowe is to receive official Honda UK Racing backing at the T.T. for the next two years.

Crowe has won three times around the Mountain Course - twice in 2006 and once in 2005. He has also recorded five second place finishes.

Although last year's Centenary T.T. was a disappointment with two non-finishes, he did claim the outright lap record with an average speed of 116.667m.p.h..

Crowe will have Mark Cox as his passenger for T.T. 2008.
