Laurent Hoffmann and Franck Petricola will make their debut at the 2014 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy as part of the experienced Ice Valley by Motorsave team.

Double International Road Race Supersport Champion Hoffmann will step up to the 1000cc class and ride a BMW S1000R in the Dainese Superbike, RL 360⁰ Superstock and PokerStars Senior TT Races.

He will also contest the two Monster Energy Supersport races on a Honda CBR600RR.

Petricola will also be BMW-mounted for the 1000cc races and will compete in the three-lap Bikesocial.co.uk Lightweight TT on an ER6 650cc Kawasaki.

The 30-year-old is another regular in the IRRC Championship and enjoyed his best season last year with 11th overall in the Superbike category.

They will be guided by experienced road racer Paul Shoesmith.
