Telecommunications satellite operator SES has partnered with the Isle of Man Government Department of Economic Development to sponsor the 2011 TT Zero race, part of the TT Races,which is set to take place on June 8.

“As a locally based business we are aware of the importance and impact of the TT Races, both locally and internationally and we are delighted to become an event sponsor. We admire the ground-breaking achievements of the TT Zero teams, and the Isle of Man Government’s success in hosting the event, and believes that the race shares many of our own brand values,” stated SES Satellite Leasing Managing Director Mark Guthrie.

“SES is a great example of a successful business that is benefiting from the Isle of Man’s corporate practices and commercial environment. We are delighted to welcome them as the TT Zero sponsor and look forward to a long and successful partnership with them,” added Hon Allan Bell, MHK, Minister, Department of Economic Development.
