2022 Macau Grand Prix, IRRC Superbike Championship runner-up David Datzer has announced his withdrawal from the 100th Anniversary Manx Grand Prix.
Originally down to pilot factory Kramer machinery within the Sure Lightweight race, Germany’s fastest TT pilot stated today via Facebook the reasons behind today’s update.
“Unfortunately for Monday bad news, at least for myself.
I have decided after much deliberation not to compete in the Lightweight class at the Manx GP!
The plan was in place a motorbike would have been provided to me by Krämer Motorcycles by Motolix.
Nevertheless, the travel costs from Germany to the Isle of Man amount to a sum that I am personally not prepared to finance out of my own pocket.
It’s not just the costs on the ground, but the costs that take up too much time, money and effort for a private person due to entry/exit and their regulations!”
Whilst the Manx GP is no longer amongst his 2023 racing itinerary, ‘Datzii’ disclosed that he will soon be dabbling again with roads scene events, with plans in place to compete at Horice, Dymokury and potentially Macau.
