The British Superbike Championship rider Peter Hickman has confirmed that he will be making his debut TT Mountain Course ride at the 2014 Isle of Man TT Races. Hickman will be riding a BMW S1000RR in three of the races, the Dainese Superbike, Royal London 360º Superstock and PokerStars Senior TT Races.
In recent years Hickman has been visiting the TT, studying the course and preparing for his debut. In recent weeks he has made more trips to the Island and this will likely continue as he prepares for the event in August.
Hickman said, “The TT has been on my radar for a while now when the opportunity came up with Paul Shoesmith I jumped at it. I’ve already met up with the rider liaison officers Milky Quayle and Johnny Barton on the Isle of Man and their advice has been invaluable and I’ll be using the next few months to make sure that I get as much preparation in as possible before I make my debut.”
Those who are interested in taking part in the race can meet up with officials from the Manx Motor Cycle Club who are happy to help guide newcomers to the course.
