With the 2014 Isle of Man TT in full swing, the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company is celebrating its continued support of two leading Manx road racers.
Conor Cummins and Dan Kneen have both been supported by the Company in recent years, receiving assistance with their travel to off-Island race events and commitments.
That support is continuing in 2014 and sees machines raced by both Manxmen carrying the Steam Packet Company logo throughout the TT as well as at all other meetings.
Conor and Dan took the opportunity to meet Steam Packet Company representatives during Practice Week to say ‘thank you’ in person for the ongoing support.
‘Ramsey Rocket’ Conor said: ‘I’ve been fortunate to have had backing from the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company with the Jackson Racing Supersport 600, and it has been a massive help in ensuring I can get to off-Island race meetings and test sessions.
‘There have been some ups and downs in the past couple of years, but I’ve got everything in place for a fantastic 2014 Isle of Man TT and brilliant season, so thanks to everyone at the Steam Packet Company for their continued support.”
Dan, of Braddan, added: ‘I am fully focused on the roads for 2014, and it has been a fantastic start to the season for the BE Racing Team with wins at Cookstown and Tandragee.
‘The support of the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company makes it possible for me to compete in the off-Island races like those, and I hope the success shows everyone at the Steam Packet Company how much I appreciate their continued support.’
The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company supports a wide range of charities, organisations, performers and sports people every year.
Steam Packet Company Chief Executive Mark Woodward said: ‘Whenever it is possible, we are pleased to help talented people in the Isle of Man community achieve their potential with support, including assistance with travel costs.
‘Conor and Dan are excellent ambassadors for the Island, and we are delighted to have been able to support them over the years and will be cheering them on around the TT Mountain Course and throughout the rest of the 2014 season.’
