some more info from TT

Bol d’Or winner Guillame Dietrich will make his Mountain course debut at the 2011 Isle of Man TT fuelled by Monster Energy.

The 28-year-old World Endurance Championship regular will join Guy Martin in the Relentless Suzuki by TAS Racing team in all three 1000cc events, the Dainese Superbike, Royal London 360 Superstock and PokerStars Senior Races

Dietrich’s entry to the TT is a major coup for the TT. The German-born French ace has ridden for the factory Suzuki World Endurance Championship team since 2002 winning the Le Mans 24-Hour race twice, in 2007 and 2008, and the Bol d’Or 24 Hour event last year.

In addition, he has been on the podium at those events eight times, also chalking up victory at the 6 Hours of Albacete and second place at the Spa 24 Hours.

Dietrich said:

“I’m very happy to ride in the TT races and for the Relentless Suzuki by TAS Racing team.”

“I’m a big fan of this race and of this team. My team mate is a big star and I hope to learn a lot. For my career it's a big corner and I’m excited about it.”

Dietrich started racing in 1997 and went on to win the French 125cc Aprilia Cup in 2000 and the 250cc version a year later, with victory in all seven championship rounds that year. That earned him a spot with Equipe de France, the French federation’s official 250cc team which had previously run the likes of Olivier Jacque and Regis Laconi. He took third in the 250cc French Championship in 2001, when he also made his Grand Prix debut.

A year later Dietrich moved onto the four-strokes and it is here he has enjoyed most success. As well as World Endurance Championship achievements, Dietrich is a double champion in both French Superbike (2007 and 2008) and Stocksport (2005 and 2006).

He also achieved notable success as a World Superbike wild card entrant at Magny Cours, finishing in 15th and 13th in the two races in 2007.

TT and Motorsport Development Manager Paul Phillips said:

“This is a really significant step in the development of the TT Races.”

“Guillaume is a really talented international rider with a proven record of success across a number of credible disciplines and races. As well as being a potential front-runner in years to come, he will also hugely assist us in boosting interest in France as well as further grow the international profile of the event.”

Relentless Suzuki by TAS Racing team boss Philip Neill added:

“We are delighted to be running Guillaume at the 2011 TT Races.”

“We believe that he has the talent to enjoy a really successful road racing career and are confident that he will perform well on the Isle of Man.”
