Costello MBE Unveils Sidecar TT Outfit, Announces New Sponsors



Alongside solo racing duties tackling the Super Twins class, racing a Mark Coverdale supported S1-R Paton, Maria Costello MBE is ultra-looking forward to her latest Sidecar racing venture at TT 2022.


As planned, she teams up with Vicky Cooke to race Kawasaki powered Frog Property Ltd, RAM Safety Solutions UK Ltd sponsored, LCR (Louis Christian Racing) machinery.


Speaking after a recent photoshoot, which showcased her outfit’s striking black, orange, white livery, 2016 Senior Classic TT podium finisher Costello MBE stated:


“Preparations have felt harder this year. Because of Covid-19 and being without the major events for two years, we lost some momentum; But thanks to continued support from ColourKraft and additional sponsor Pow Graphics I’m so happy to finally reveal my new sidecar livery.”


Going onto praise newly acquired sponsors The Street Diner, she said:


“They are exceptional caterers with real chefs and bespoke menus and they have something for everyone at this year’s TT.


They are sponsoring some of the other TT racers, so we’re hoping to do some joint signings at their food outlets during the fortnight.”


Another strong backer of Costello MBE’s TT return is Silverstone Auctions.


Synonymous for selling priceless, authentic sports cars, supercars, superbikes, ex racing bikes, Silverstone Auctions Chairman Nick Whale stated about supporting brand ambassador, recent top 12 finisher Costello MBE.


“We are delighted to have Maria as our Motorcycle Ambassador, as she is a legend, a remarkable woman who has carved a place for herself in a sport still largely dominated by men.


She is leading the way and opening the door for many more women to enter the sport. And she is doing it with such style!”
