Isle of Man TT 2012: Dan Stewart targeting podium

Dan Stewart
His fastest lap of 128.788 mph makes him the 13th quickest rider in TT history

Cumbrian racer Dan Stewart is targeting the TT podium after announcing he will again spearhead the Wilcock Consulting campaign at the Isle of Man event.

Stewart will have three machines at his disposal as he bids to improve on the sixth place finishes he achieved at each of the last three TT meetings.

"The bikes will be capable of getting onto the podium with a bit of luck," said the 36-year-old.

Stewart is also targeting a 130 mph lap of the Mountain Course in 2012.

He continued: "If I could do that and get amongst the top 10 fastest riders of all time, I'll be happy."

The Barrow-in-Furness rider made his debut on the Mountain Course back in the Manx Grand Prix of 2000 when he finished third in the newcomers race and has since gone on to rack up a long list of impressive performances.

Stewart will also contest the Metzeler National Superstock 1000cc Championship as well as contesting the Ulster Grand Prix.
