MANX Grand Prix regular Sarah Boyes will head for the Mountain Course armed with a Krämer 690 this summer as the German marque reveals a two-rider squad.
The Supermono machine, which won Thundersport GB’s GP2 Supertwins championship last season with Austrian Lukas Wimmer, will contest the Ultra-Lightweight class’ pair of three-lap scraps over the August fortnight in a bid for top honours.
Boyes is no stranger to the Manx and has contested the event for seven of the past eight years with a best finish of 17th in the 2016 Lightweight scrap.
And with a best average speed of 108mph, the 31-year-old is hoping to go even better come August.
“I am really grateful for this opportunity that Markus [Krämer] has given me,” Boyes admitted. “The bike suits me to the ground being so light and small, it’s a real pleasure to ride and I think it has great potential in the Ultra-Lightweight class.
“I had to sit out last years Manx Grand Prix due to lack of finances and I did begin to wonder if I would ever get back again. However, with ARD Racing who has worked extremely hard to give me the chance to return to the island and hopefully achieve my goals, I can’t thank them enough. I honestly can’t wait to be back there again come August.”
The second Krämer rider is set to be announced soon – stay tuned to UKClubsport.com for all the latest.
