Isle of Man TT 2012: Cummins and Martin want wins

Tyco Suzuki by TAS Racing team-mates Conor Cummins and Guy Martin are targeting their first Isle of Man TT wins in June.

The two crowd favourites have recorded 16 TT podium finishes between them, but have never stood on the top step.

Manx racer Cummins said: "The ingredients are all there, the bike is great, the team is one of the very best, but what will be will be."

Cummins and Martin both suffered high-speed crashes at the 2010 event.

The pair returned to race the following year with Martin finishing on the podium in four of the five races.

Martin said: "It looks like a totally different team with us returning to the original colours [blue and white] but it is the same lads. [Team boss] Hector Neill has won 14 TTs in those colours, so we'll be right.

"I'm looking forward to it, it's the same set-up. The team prepares the bikes and I get on and ride them. We got on a treat last year, we learnt a bit, and what we learnt we will take through to this year."

"Hopefully we will go out there and do the job."

Both riders will race for the team at the North West 200, TT and the Ulster Grand Prix.

Cummins added: "The team and the machinery are brilliant so it is just down to me, I would love to win. This is the ride I've been wanting for three or four years and I can't wait to get racing."

The 25-year-old has finished on the TT podium three times including the runner-up spot in the 2009 Senior race and he also established a commanding lead in the 2010 Superbike race before breaking down.

He battled back from career-threatening injuries to compete in the 2011 TT and achieved a notable sixth place in the Supersport Race Two.
