Team Green Podium Delight At 2023 Isle of Man TT!

Team Green Podium Delight At 2023 Isle of Man TT!

The 2023 Isle of Man TT proved to be an incredible fortnight of racing on the island, and for Kawasaki and Team Green, it was a resounding success with podiums coming across race week at the hands of Dean Harrison, Jamie Coward and Josh Brookes.

With glorious weather gracing the Isle of Man throughout the TT festival, lap times quickly tumbled, and for DAO Racing and Dean Harrison, practice week gave them plenty of time to get the ZX-10RR Superbike and Superstock machines dialled into the challenging 37.73-mile circuit. Having already had three rounds of BSB under his belt and a successful week at the North West 200, Dean was able to hit the ground running. 

He continued that pace into race week, where he was able to claim third place in the Superbike TT before replicating that in both Superstock races. In the blue-riband Senior TT, Dean immediately got his head down to set a fantastic pace, eventually securing second place to make it a 100% podium success rate for the team. 

The Team Green success did not end there, though. The two Supertwin TT races proved to be edge-of-the-seat action, with Jamie Coward claiming a hard-earned third place in the opening race, while Josh Brookes claimed his maiden TT podium in race two. This was an impressive feat from the returning Australian rider, who only sat on the RC Express Racing Ninja 650 machine for the first time in practice week! 

Ross Burridge, Head of Marketing & Racing Department at Kawasaki UK:

“Never have we seen weather, lap times and exciting racing like it! I would like to thank Dean and the DAO Racing team for all of their efforts across the fortnight; they worked tirelessly to achieve the superb results we saw. Between those and the double Supertwin podium, I would say it was a successful event for Team Green, and I am already looking forward to building on this for TT2024! I would also like to offer my sincere condolences to the friends and family of Raul Torras Martinez, who lost his life in the Supertwin race.”
