Costello will race on the Mountain course aboard two machines: a Moto3 Honda NSF250 and a brand new Triumph 675R. The Moto3 bike has just received a HRC race kit which is expected to produce a massive power increase.

On the other hand, Maria is eager to see how will the Triumph 675R behave in the TT. She believes the Triumph has a tremendous road racing potential and Bob Wylie, owner of Bob Wylie Racing added he's quite confident that Maria will be able to be even more successful on the upgraded Moto3 machine and the new Daytona bike.
