Former Irish Superbike champion McCormack to make TT debut

The 2008 Irish Superbike champion Brian McCormack has confirmed he will compete in the TT for the first time.

The 26-year old had been due to make his debut 12 months ago only to be forced out after a split with his British Superbike team but his commitment has remained and he intends to contest all five solo races in June.

The Waterford rider has gradually improved his results in the Irish Championship and after taking the runners-up spot in 2007, he went one better in 2008 to take the premier Superbike title.

Last year, McCormack had a brief spell in the British Superbike Championship before splitting with the MAR team but he did make his road racing debut with appearances at both the North West 200 and Killalane Road Races.
