Guy Martin agrees new one-year contract with Tyco Suzuki

Lincolnshire's Guy Martin has signed on for a fourth year with the Northern-Ireland based Tyco Suzuki team.

There had been speculation that the colourful road racer could leave the Moneymore outfit, owned by Hector and Philip Neill.

Martin, will again contest all three international road races, the North West 200, Isle of Man TT and Ulster GP.

He has won eight races at the Ulster in the past and is on pole for Saturday's Supersport race.

"I had plenty of offers, but I always knew I would stay with Tyco if they wanted me," said Martin.

"We get on well, they are the right folk for me.

"I am staying with these boys because I think it is my best chance of winning a TT."

Martin, 31, has been racing at the TT since 2004 and, although he has been on the podium eight times, has yet to win.

He joined the then TAS Suzuki team in 2010 after a short period with another Northern Ireland team, Wilson Craig Honda.
