TT racer and ex-sidecar world champ Klaus Klaffenbock has announced his immediate retirement from TT racing.

The three times TT winner debuted on the Isle of Man in 2004 before winning both sidecar races in 2010 and one this year.

He said: “It was always my ambition to win a TT race so by winning three I have already exceeded my ambition. I will maintain an involvement with the races in the future as it has always been such a special event for me”.

Klaffenboch is the first Austrian TT winner since 1954 when Rupert Hollaus won the Ultra-Lightweight race.
