WIGAN speedster John Ingram is the latest rider from the British Championship paddock to announce he will make his debut at the 2012 Isle of Man TT fuelled by Monster Energy.

Ingram will be supported on the Isle of Man by British Superbike Championship team SMT, whose owner Robin Croft is a long time supporter of the TT having assisted both John McGuinness and Michael Rutter.

Croft has a long association with Ingram, sponsoring his British Superstock campaign for a number of years and, having opted out of this year’s BSB series, Croft is looking to increase his involvement on the roads instead, with Ingram being the first part of that process.

“It’s been a major ambition of mine to compete at the TT races, but to date the opportunity hasn’t been right. I’m thrilled to finally have everything in place and am working really hard to prepare for my debut this summer,” he said.
