Erik Morales Kibarelli is aiming to become Mexico’s first TT Races competitor in 2018.
The Michoacan based racer, recently announced his groundbreaking intentions via Facebook, he stated:
“Warrior training purépecha michoacano out of the small old road called a thousand summits morelia, 11 years battling against Superbike experts vs the fastest rivals in the country, giving battle always and sometimes securing podiums.
With always used tyres and motorcycles with equipment borrowed Sometimes, never been able to fully push the big teams and billionaire enterprises.
But someone believes in me and is not Mexican that’s my celtic friend Paco DE Man from TT Supporters Spain who is helping me on this path to breaking the story and being the first Mexican to run in an event of that magnitude.
Now I’m waiting to participate as a newcomer in the biggest show on the planet the Isle of Man TT in 2018. A thousand thanks also to my friend Tim Marcelo Louis for everything, hopefully in God be next year on the island in Europe representing Mexico full gas!”
