Having provided numerous machines for recent displays and parade laps, Team Collins & Russell will make their debut on the grid at the 2015 Classic TT presented by Bennetts with Jamie Hamilton, James Neesom and Billy Redmayne lining up for the experienced outfit.

Northern Ireland's Hamilton will spearhead the team, run by long term road racing supporters Des Collins and Ronnie Russell, riding a specially built ZX750K in the Motorsport Merchandise Formula 1 Classic TT Race.  The machine is a joint venture with Alasdair Cowan and Hamilton will be hoping to see the chequered flag this year having been forced to retire from sixth place in the corresponding race last year when riding the Mistral Racing Kawasaki.

Joining him in the Formula 1 Race will be last year's Lightweight Manx Grand Prix winner James Neesom who gets his first taste of the Classic TT.  The Bempton- based rider will be on board Nigel Fitzimmons' ZXR750RR for the four lap race.

TCR are also entering the Motorsport Merchandise Formula 2 TT where they will be running a KR1S 250 Kawasaki.  They have secured the services of top local rider Billy Redmayne who won last year's Newcomers Manx Grand Prix and placed 2nd in the Junior MGP Race, where he also set the fastest lap at a superb 119.062mph.

Once again TCR will have an extensive marquee at the Classic TT where they'll be displaying and parading a lot of new and interesting machines from Europe, the UK and the Isle of Man.

In addition, TCR will run New Zealand rider Michael Moulai in the Manx Grand Prix where he will ride ZX6R 600 and ZX7RR 750 machines. The kiwi placed second in last year's Senior MGP.
