Centurion Racing to compete in IOM TT

"I rode there last year and thought it was brilliant so I couldn't wait for it to come round again"
Centurion Racing has confirmed its participation in this year's Isle of Man TT Races.

The Cornwall-based race team, which had five successful years in the British Supersport Championship, is turning its attention to the world's most famous road race in its Centenary year.

Dan Cooper, who shared in many of Centurion Racing's British Supersport successes, will enter a Triumph 675 Daytona in the Supersport class and a Honda Fireblade in the Superstock and Senior TT races.

"I rode there last year and thought it was brilliant so I couldn't wait for it to come round again," said Cooper. "This year should be even better as I have gained more confidence, consistency and speed and have the support of Centurion Racing.

"The TT circuit is truly awesome, especially the organisation and safety measures that the organisers have established. You never stop learning on this circuit no matter how many times you go round.

"There are more senior, well respected riders out there who have been doing this race for years like John McGuinness, Ian Hutchinson, Conor Cummins, Michael Dunlop and Guy Martin to mention a few, who are constantly adjusting their styles, techniques and are forever learning the circuit.

"So basically, I have a lot to learn and a lot of catching up to do but it should be good."

Centurion Racing will continue to show their support for Help for Heroes, their chosen charity, by displaying H4H logos on the bikes' new livery designed by Rage Designs and team attire.
