Toll Racing Join International Roads Fraternity, Announce Link Up With Torras Martinez

Spanish roads great Raul Torras Martinez is set to take on an enterprising new challenge in 2021, as he links with roads fraternity newcomers Toll Racing for competition at the major International road races.

As long as the Covid-19 situation improves (seem to be stating this a lot!) 18th place finisher in the record breaking, history making Senior TT of 2018 Torras Martinez, is down to pilot next year CBR 1000RR-R SP Fireblade Honda machinery at the North West 200, TT Races and Macau Grand Prix.

Widely regarded as Spain’s leading real road racer of the past decade, Torras Martinez’s proficient roads CV includes six top 30 TT finishes, North West 200, Ulster GP top 20 finishes and a top six finish from the Newcomers A Manx Grand Prix of 2016.

Whilst not able to take in roads action this year, thanks to the stated above, he showed his gaming pedigree in the inaugural Virtual TT, finishing overall third alongside Aaron Hislop.

He’s also kept sharp via selected purpose built circuit racing outings including at Circuit De Navarra, Cartagena and this weekend at Circuit Ricardo Tormo.

Looking forward to competition with Toll Racing, Torras Martinez like 100’s of competitors, teams, marshals is keeping the positive vibes up ahead of next season, which fingers crossed includes more than a touch of International roads events.
