Talk about kicking a man when he's down. First Crescent Suzuki lose the 'official' Suzuki GB race budget and backing. Then your star man Tommy Hill decides to ride a Swan Yamaha. And now your title sponsor for the past two years – power tools outfit Worx – leaves you to go off with TAS Relentless Suzuki. Things can only get better, surely?
Needless to say, it's more budget for Phillip Neil's Irish based Suzuki squad, ready to do battle on several fronts in 2011. British supersbikes with Josh Brookes and now British supersport with Alistair Seeley. Add Guy Martin to the mix (and he has to win this year, with Steve Plater retired and Ian Hutchinson and Conor Cummins injured, right?) on the roads, in the NW200 and Isle of Man TT and TAS is going to need every penny it can get. Here comes the official stuff...
“Worx will also be involved in our British Superbike and International Road Racing programmes as a team partner. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Worx for their commitment to TAS Racing and also to our existing partners and title sponsor Relentless, for welcoming Worx into the fold for 2011.”
