TT Winner Cameron Joins TAS Suzuki

2011 International Road Racing

After months of speculation, Melbourne’s Cameron Donald will partner new-signing Guy Martin on the International Road Racing scene in 2011 for Relentless by TAS Suzuki, completing the Moneymore based teams ‘pure road racing’ line-up.

Donald will remain in the TAS Suzuki Racing set-up for a third successive season, and the double TT winner is very much looking forward to renewing his connection with the team, on a full stable of Suzuki GSX-R machinery.

Cameron Donald says: “What can I say apart from, I couldn’t be happier to be racing for Relentless by TAS Suzuki again in 2011. My goal, as always, is to win International Road Races and I know better than anyone I need to come out fighting in 2011.”

“In saying that, I couldn’t have a better team in my corner for the job ahead and the only way I can thank Philip and Hector’s loyalty is by winning races next season. Securing this deal will also make the trip to Macau for the Grand Prix later this month, a whole lot more enjoyable for all involved. Hopefully we can put on a good show in the Far East as it feels like the start of 2011 for me already.”

Philip Neill (TAS Suzuki Team Manager) says: “After a lot of rumors on who we might sign for 2011, I think it’s very good news that Cameron is back on-board for 2011. It’s been well documented that this season has not been his best in Relentless Suzuki colors, but having fought back from a bigger injury than some people imagined in 2009, a TT Superbike podium was no mean achievement.”

“He knows what it takes to win on the Isle of Man and with a 131mph lap also under his belt, we believe Cameron will be back to his very best on Suzuki GSX-R machinery in 2011. We never enjoy having to let anyone go from our set-up, so we’re delighted to welcome him back into the fold alongside new signing Guy Martin. I’m sure both boys will be a credit to our sponsors and fans.”

2011 International Road Racing Schedule

Both Donald and Martin’s full program of races for 2011 will not be announced until the new year, although the team can provisionally confirm the North West 200, Isle of Man TT and Ulster Grand Prix at this time.
