German rider to make TT debut

Newcomer to enter both Supersport races

German rider David Datzer will make his debut at this year's Isle of Man TT.

The 26-year-old visited the Island earlier this month to begin the newcomer induction programme with rider liaison officers Richard 'Milky' Quayle and John Barton.

He's spent the last three seasons racing in the International Road Racing Championship, finishing fifth overall last year.

Datzer will enter both Supersport races, riding a GSXR600 Suzuki.

He's described the TT as the ultimate test for a motorcycle rider, adding that he's under no illusion about the challenge he's taking on.
