AJ VENTER TO RIDE FOR COOKSTOWN BURROWS ENGINEERING SUZUKI AT ISLE OF MAN TT RACES 2018

Posted on April 25, 2018 at 8:10 AM



South African based AJ Venter will be making a return to the Isle of Man TT Circuit this year where he will be riding a Suzuki GSXR1000 in the Superbike, Superstock and the Senior Races.


AJ will be riding under the banner and guidance of John Burrows's Cookstown Burrows Suzuki Team.


Mr Burrows and his team are very well known to the Road Racing Community with John being a former competitor around the iconic course in the past with some really outstanding results.


The team are currently competing in all the Irish National Road Race Meetings, as well as the Northwest 200, Isle of Man TT and the Ulster Grand Prix.


With AJ being the youngest and the only South African competing at the TT this year, he is really looking forward to getting back there.


"Having sat out of last year's TT, I am really excited to be going back to the Isle of Man this year. I would also like to say a massive thank you to Joao Fernandes from CF32 for putting this whole deal together. Having the opportunity to learn off someone like John is really a dream come true! Having seen the results Derek Sheils has achieved on those bikes is a true indication of what the team are capable of, and that will allow me to concentrate on getting to grips with the course"


This year's Isle of Man TT event will run from the 26 May up until the 8th June. AJ would like to thank all his sponsors who have helped make this opportunity achievable, and if there are still any companies out there looking for some really big exposure to contact AJ via email at ajventer@lekka-racing.co.za or via his athlete page on Facebook:
