Ryan Farquhar is setting his sights on victory in the Royal London 360° Superstock event at next year's Isle of Man TT after missing last year's race through injury. The Dungannon rider crashed during practice for last year's TT and has been using that moment as inspiration as he prepares for the 2012 TT.
“I still have unfinished business in the Superstock class, particularly after last year's disappointment. I'm looking forward to next year's races and will be looking to build on my 2010 performance.”
Farquhar was speaking on the day Royal London 360° signed a three-year deal to sponsor the Superstock class, making them the TT's longest existing sponsor and Farquhar has welcomed the news.
“I am delighted to see a Manx company making such a valued contribution to the success of the TT and I am looking forward to working with Royal London 360° again over the next three years, and hopefully reaching the top step of the podium once more in 2012!”
Finance and Commercial Director Mike Crellin is delighted to be continuing the company's association with the TT and adds that the event is an integral part of their yearly schedule.
“Our sponsorship of the Royal London 360° Superstock TT race is a partnership which has worked both commercially and locally for us since 2002, and we are really excited to be continuing our sponsorship of the event for another three years.”
“It is vital for us that we continue to invest in our Manx roots yet promote the Island internationally, and our sponsorship of the Royal London 360° Superstock TT race allows us to do this. It makes such a difference to our relationships with our key stakeholders that we are able to bring them to the Isle of Man, spend time with them and enjoy the TT, and we look forward to this continuing!”
