Carreira to get Kawasak for IoM TT

Luis Carreira will ride a MSS Colchester-prepared Kawasaki for the 2011 Isle of Man TT
Luis Carreira will return to the Isle of Man TT in 2011 after signing to ride for the Ulster-based CR Racing.

The Portuguese rider, who has won his domestic Superstock 1000 series on four occasions, will have a plethora of machines at his disposal when action gets underway in May after CD Racing secured an MSS Colchester-prepared Kawasaki ZX-10R for the Superbike and Senior races.

He will also ride a Kawasaki in the Superstock class, though he will switch to a Yamaha for the two Supersport classes.

Carreira, who has also enjoyed notable success in Macau, made his mountain course debut in 2009 when he secured a best finish of 18th. He improved to 17th in the Superstock race on his return last year.

“Everyone in the team is really excited to be bringing Luis on board,” said CD Racing team boss Chris Dowd. “He has massive potential to make a real impression on the top 10 at this year's TT and we will be putting everything we can into him to achieve that.”

“We are grateful for the ongoing support from our loyal sponsors, as well as the essential assistance from Nick Morgan at MSS Kawasaki.”

“I am really looking forward to returning to the Isle of Man and I'd also like to thank Chris for this opportunity,” added Carreira.

“We have some good bikes and I think that we can do a good job. I can promise everyone that I will work hard to be able to reward everyone with good results in all races. Lastly I want to thank team Benimoto for their honesty and the support that they gave me with this decision.”

I think Luis Carreira is a safe bet for a few very respectable results, as he is both determined and talented. I will be following his progress very closely and with much interest.
