MIKE RUSSELL: RAF AND RACING
Privateer racer Mike Russell who attempted every class at TT 2022 and TT 2023, joins Chris and Lee on The TT Podcast
In part 1, Mike talks about his experience starting in every class at the TT, something he attempted at both TT 2022 and TT 2023, including how he learned about the course through VHS tapes. He tells the guys the incredible story of missing a year of circuit racing due to being called up for the Iraq War, but how that ended in him competing at the Manx.
Returning for part 2, Mike talks about his plans to prolong his career in the sidecar class, including his aims for 2024 and beyond. He also gives insight to his unique perspective on what it’s like balancing racing alongside his role in the RAF.
