Team Mugen has confirmed that they will be returning to the Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy in 2018 with a three man team, including legendary 23-time TT Race winner John McGuinness.

McGuinness, who will be joined by New Zealand’s Bruce Anstey and Lee Johnston, returns to the team after recovering from the injuries that caused him to miss the 2017 TT event.

The Morecambe Missile will also be looking for a third TT Zero victory having won the race in 2014 and 2015.
The team recently unveiled their new 2018 Shinden NANA machine, which will take part in the ninth running of the SES TT Zero Race, at the 45th Tokyo Motor Cycle Show.

Already with four successive victories under their belts, Team Mugen will be looking to make it five in a row.

McGuinness, riding the MUGEN Shinden san, set the current lap record for the TT Zero class in 2015 at 119.279mph.
