Belgian racer Vick De Cooremeter will compete for the first time at this year’s Isle of Man TT Races and will enter all three 1000cc races, the Isle of Man TT website has confirmed.
Vick will ride a BMW S1000RR for the Okidoki Racing Team and will enter the Dainese Superbike, Royal London 360⁰ Superstock and Pokerstars Senior TT Races.
The 28-year old racer is a former Belgian Junior Supersport Champion and has regularly participated in the International Road Race Championships in previous seasons. Last year, De Cooremeter recorded his most successful season, finishing third overall in the Superbike race, just behind Didier Grams and Nicky De Wit.
By the end of the 2013 season, De Cooremeter finished in the top ten in nine out of ten races but he did not finish the Chimay race, which stopped him from securing a 100% finishing record. Back in 2011, Vick also succeeded in the Belgium Endurance Championship, taking the top spot alongside Gregory Fastre, where the duo won the six-hour endurance race at Spa-Francorchamps.
To compete in the Isle of Man TT is a dream, De Cooremeter says, adding that he feels ready to hit the Mountain Course circuit for the first time. Vick says that he has been working very hard to learn the circuit and has even travelled to the island recently. De Cooremeter is also planning another trip as part of his preparations for the races, but he is confident with his knowledge of the circuit.
