Dietrich joins Martin at Relentless Suzuki

Relentless by TAS Suzuki completes its Isle of Man TT line-up with the signing of Frenchman Guillaume Dietrich.
Relentless by TAS Suzuki has announced that successful endurance racer Guillaume Dietrich will make his Isle of Man TT debut with the team this year.

The German-born Frenchman is a former winner of the Le Mans 24-Hour race, while he was also triumphant in last year's Bol d'Or 24-Hour event at Magny-Cours as part of the title-winning Suzuki Endurance Racing Team.

Extending his long association with Suzuki, Dietrich will join the long-confirmed Guy Martin for an assault on both the Superbike and Superstock categories.

“I m very happy to be riding in the TT Races and also happy to be riding for the Relentless Suzuki by TAS Racing team. I'm a big fan of this race and of this team. My team-mate Guy Martin is a big star and I hope to learn a lot from him. For my career it's a big corner and I'm excited about it.”

“We are delighted to be running Guillaume at the 2011 TT Races, as we believe he has the talent to enjoy a very successful road racing career,” added team manager Philip Neill. “His association with Suzuki at World Endurance level demonstrates his pedigree and you only have to look at his CV to realise his talent on a motorcycle.

“It's always positive to be associated with such a professional rider, and while we are not expecting big results from him in his first year at the TT, I do believe he will represent Suzuki, Relentless, and all our other sponsors in a positive manner.”

FFS there are plenty of newcomers to the TT that have gone with high profile teams, done well and gone on the great success. Steve Plater anyone? Get over it. His start number is not that high (45 I think) so it will be steady away and maybe build up to a good future at the TT for him. Well done to all concerned (Hector, Philip and Paul Phillips/Milky Quayle) for getting Guillaume to complete in the greatest motorcycle road race in the world.
