Maria Costello will join forces with Vicky Cooke to form an all-new sidecar team for 2021.
Costello has taken on sidecar racing in recent years to add to her already successful career on two wheels, and is delighted to be partnered with Cooke, an accomplished passenger who comes from a family steeped in racing history.
Although the 2021 season has again be disrupted by the cancellation of the main International road races, the duo are planning on using this season on short circuits to build a partnership with the aim of tackling the Isle of Man TT together in 2022.
The pair will make their first outing onboard the RAM Safety Solutions UK Ltd LCR F2 at the Wirral 100 event at Oulton Park this coming weekend.
“I’m more than delighted to team up with Vicky. Her passion for the sport is backed up by her success and experience," said Costello.
"Which she has in spades – she’s a three-times winner of the IoM Pre-TT, that’s an impressive pedigree. Having a shared commitment to the team and to achieving our goals makes me feel really excited about what we can achieve together. I’m so excited to get started.”
