Ex World and TT Sidecar Champion Klaus Klaffenbock announces his retirement from the Isle of Man TT Races
Klaus, who began racing at the TT in 2004 won both sidecar races in 2010 and also finished first in the Sure Sidecar 1 Race in 2011 with Manxman Dan Sayle, before breaking down in the second race. He is the first Austrian TT winner since Rupert Hollaus won the Ultra-Lightweight race in 1954.

Commenting on his retirement Klaus said:

“It was always my ambition to win a TT Race so by winning three I have already exceeded my ambition. I will maintain an involvement with the Races in the future as it has always been such a special event for me and I am also extremely fond of the Island.”

He continued:

“I’d like to thank my passenger Dan Sayle along with all of my personal sponsors Manx Gas, A&J Groundworks, Manx Telecom, Home Strategic, GTC, Alpha Boilers and The Isle of Man Government and I’d also like to offer my gratitude to all of the TT fans for their incredible support during my career, particularly when I won my first TT in 2010.”

Paul Phillips, TT and Motorsport Manager, Isle of Man Government commented:

“Klaus has been a really popular competitor and supporter of the TT since he first stated competing. The event was given a real boost by the participation of a current sidecar world Champion and it opened the door to the TT to other crews from the World Championship. Klaus showed his ability, and persistence, in his double winning year in 2010 andhe has been a real star and is rightly recognised as a TT hero.”
