A MOTORCYCLIST is hoping for a winner of a birthday present when he competes at the Isle of Man 2014 TT later this year. 

John Ingram, from Hindley, has signed up for a full season in the British Superbike Championships and won both the Powerbike and Superbike races at his first outing this year at Aintree Motor Cycle Race Club.

With the backing of Hunts Honda, Hawk Moto and Gadgetbox, the 38-year-old will compete at the Isle of Man on his birthday on his Honda Fireblade in the Superbike, Superstock and Senior races.
