NGK-sponsored Maria Costello competing in Isle of Man TT


Date: 04-Jun-2018

NGK-sponsored ‘Queen of the Bikers’ Maria Costello MBE is once again the only female competing in the four-lap Bennetts Lightweight TT at the world-famous Isle of Man TT.

Ignition specialist NGK is a long-standing supporter of Maria with her Kawasaki ER6 supertwin motorcycle sporting an NGK-dominated livery.

The company has a long and illustrious motorsport pedigree, helping some of the most famous two and four-wheel teams and competitors to numerous race victories and titles.

Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “The Isle of Man TT is an iconic fixture in the motorcycle racing calendar and we wish Maria every success as she continues to be a trail-blazer for women competing on the two-wheel racing scene.”

This year, the Lightweight TT race has attracted its strongest ever entry with more than 70 competitors including BSB star and 2018 SuperTwin NW200 winner Martin Jessopp, who is hoping to improve on his second and third places achieved over the past two years, and previous class winners Michael Rutter and Ivan Lintin, as well as Michael Dunlop, Peter Hickman, Ian Hutchinson and Gary Johnson.

The Isle of Man TT runs until Friday, June 8.
