250cc two-stroke GP machines to return

John McGuinness has welcomed the return of the 250s to the Classic TT.

A new Lightweight Race has been added to next year's programme.

The 23-time TT winner holds the 250 lap record set in 1999 at 118.29 mph.

The event was last run in 2002.

He says it's brilliant news and hopes he can still compete on the small bike.
