WSS: Suriano confirms Triumph entry

Ronan Quarmby and Danilo Dell'Omo will ride for Suriano Triumph in the World Supersport Championship this season.
Triumph will get a satellite presence in the World Supersport Championship this season after Suriano Racing confirmed its plans to enter the series.

The team, which has enjoyed substantial success in its native Italy, will graduate to the international stage with a two rider entry comprising of Danilo Dell'Omo and Ronan Quarmby.

Though it has had a long-term relationship with Suzuki, Suriano will switch to Triumph machinery in 2011 having already acquired a pair of 675 Daytonas from the manufacturer's official BE1 Racing outfit.

"To race with Triumph and to return to World Supersport is a great satisfaction for me and I'd like to thank Giuliano Rovelli and the BE1 Racing staff for their collaboration," declared eponymous team owner Antonio Suriano, "I can't wait to start to work on the new bikes. There's not much time left and we've got a lot to do but we're full of enthusiasm and we'll be giving 110% to get ready for the opening round.”

Dell'Omo brings three years of Supersport experience to the team, the Italian an occasional top ten visitor in 2009, though he struggled for form with Kuja Honda in 2010.

"It's a perfect situation with Ninetto [Antonio]. I couldn't ask for more because I will be backed by a team I know well and I'll be on a bike that has proved to be competitive. After an early learning period, I expect to be competitive and I'm sure the team will give me a bike capable of scoring good results. As we have always done.”

Quarmby, meanwhile, will make his full-time debut after making three tentative outings on a Ten Kate prepared Honda in 2010, the South African delighted to be stepping up to the main stage.

"I've dreamed about racing in the world championship since the start of my career," said the 19-year-old. "I've already tried the Daytona Superstock, it's right for my size and I'm ready to start this new challenge. A big thanks to Ninetto Suriano for giving me the chance to race with Triumph, I hope to be able to repay his confidence in me with some good results.”
