Guy Martin says he is ready to get his 2011 Isle of Man TT campaign fully underway this weekend as he bids to secure that elusive victory.
Twelve months on from a colossal accident that landed him in hospital, Martin is currently well placed to secure his maiden victory on the island, with this year's attempt being spearheaded by top outfit Relentless by TAS Suzuki.
Currently second on the timesheets after three days of practice, Martin says he is pleased with the feeling on the GSX-R1000 and has high hopes for Saturday's race.
"We've had a steady away practice week and as I've told quite a few people already, 'the racing starts on Saturday' so there's no need to hang them out in practice. It's a matter of getting everything the way we want for racing and the big GSX-R1000 Superbike is ready to race.
“I've enjoyed this week getting back out on the TT Circuit and I feel comfortable and confident on the TAS Racing bikes; everyone is doing their job and we're happy, so let's hope it all comes together on Saturday.”
