Japanese manufacturer Yamaha has confirmed that it will be running a factory supported race team at the 2011 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy.
Shaun Muir Racing, with support from Yamaha, has signed history making Ian Hutchinson, who became the first man to win five TT races in a single week, beating the record of Phil McCallen who recorded four victories in 1996. He first competed at the TT in 2004 and has won eight races in total including last years clean sweep of five victories.
Hutchinson, who suffered a career threatening injury in the British Supersport Championship at Silverstone following his momentous five wins at the 2010 TT Races, this week confirmed that he is beginning his recuperation programme and is determined to take up his position on the 2011 TT grid.
