John McGuinness - 2005 Rider Profile

John McGuiness

John McGuinness is again reunited with AIM Racing for the 2005 British Superbike Championship. The 32 year old Morecombe rider started riding at the age of 5 in motor-cross and only changed to road racing at the age of 18. Since his change in direction he has had an illustrious career spanning over fifteen years. Although John did not compete in British Superbikes for a few years he continued his road racing career and was rewarded in 2004 by joining the elite class of 4 other riders to win 3 TT races in 1 week. 2004 was an exciting year for the Morecombe rider as he was drafted into the Hawk Kawasaki squad half way through the season to replace the injured Glen Richards.

When asked for his racing highlights he cannot name one as he has had so many events he has enjoyed.

  • 1999: Won first TT race and Daytona on a 250. Daytona was special to John as he went to America to a track for the first time and won on an uncompetitive 250.
  • 2000: Scoring his first points in GPs (John has competed in 4 GPs to-date).
  • 2004: Winning 3 TT races in one week.
  • 2004: Getting on the BSB podium at Brands Hatch
