Creighton Track Bike in the Senior?
There's quite a bit of internet chatter on the new rotary engined track only bike being built by Brian Creighton.

Does anyone know if it would fit under the rules for a Senior entry?

Not sure if the words twin wankel will get past the filter but I've found a link for more info 😂

Isn't entry to the Senior ultimately at the discretion of the organisers? I think that's how the recent Norton raced at the IoM but was not eligible at the NW200.

If anyone with technical knowledge wants to check the regs the link is tt_regulations_2022_v7-1_compressed.pdf

From memory I think rotory engine capacity is measured differently ?
So if you have, say a 650cc rotory engine the total cc measured is doubled (or something like that) so you'd end up with a 1300cc
Hopefully someone on here will know.

I remember years ago that the senior was open to prototype bikes wich the Norton were and creighton bikes are and like sam pato says its upto the organisers discretion let them race more the merrier

How good would it be to see Bruce smoke the field on something like this?

My guess is that the 'organisers discretion' may be influenced by the bigger teams thoughts on the subject - at least if there was a chance of it winning.

Yes it would be nice to see another make and sound going round the TT course l don't know how much development has gone into the machine but give credit where its due Brian Crieghton has stuck with this concept for a long time I wish him well.
