Dan Linfoot will return to the saddle of a Honda in British Superbike with TAG Racing this year. He will also be at the start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans
After waiting for the whole 2020, Dan Linfoot is ready for 2021 with the right conditions. This is his third consecutive year at TAG Racing, but he returning on the saddle of a Honda. At the controls of a CBR 1000RR-R followed directly by the British branch, the goal is to be among the drivers admitted to the Showdown and, where possible, at least on the podium.
2020 TO FORGET
The ambitious intentions are supported by an excellent technical package available and the great desire for redemption. Last year he suffered the traumatic and sudden divorce between TAG Racing and Yamaha. This led him to lose his bike in the BSB after a couple of rounds. Following this decision, and the release granted to him by the team, he closed 2020 in the British Superstock 1000 with Bathams BMW, however renewing the agreement with Gary Winfield’s team for 2021.
BACK TO HONDA
Linfoot was one of the main supporters of the move to Honda. He raced in 2015-2018 with Honda winning a couple of times. An important period to adapt well to the new CBR 1000RR-R, not unlike the bike available to the “internal” team and entrusted to Glenn Irwin and Ryo Mizuno.
COMMITMENT TO ENDURANCE
Parallel to the priority commitment in the BSB, Dan Linfoot will also be at the start of some events of the FIM EWC Endurance World Championship. His participation in the 24 Hours of Le Mans on April 17-18 with the Suzuki of Team R2CL has already been confirmed. In the past, Linfoot defended the colors of Moriwaki Honda and MotoMap Suzuki at the Suzuka 8 Hours, competing in the 2019 Sepang 8 Hours with Motors Events Suzuki.
