2024 Isle of Man TT Superbike, Race 1:


The 2024 Isle of Man TT Superbike class results will be published here throughout this year's TT. Michael Dunlop was fastest in the first qualifying session, before Davey Todd took the lead in the second and third sessions. Peter Hickman put his FHO BMW into the lead in the fourth and final qualifier.

Race 1

Peter Hickman took his first Isle of Man TT win of 2024 in Superbike Race 1 after pit stop drama.

Dean Harrison took an early lead, but Michael Dunlop took the lead on the second lap. Dunlop then seemed to be in control: he caught Harrison on the road on lap three after the first stop 30 seconds later, and entered the pits on lap four with a lead of more than 20 seconds.

Harrison used a Dunlop pull to put himself back in contention for the podium, after falling to fourth on lap three – and was ahead of Hickman who pitted on lap four.

But this is where racing changed. Harrison exited the pits just behind Dunlop, which he needed to continue making time for Hickman and even Davey Todd, who was second entering the pits for the second time.

Dunlop then slowed, causing him to stop with visor problems. He came back again but lost 40 seconds. It looked good for Todd, but he had his own issues in the pits, and now Harrison leads from Hickman.

Harrison now had no tow from Dunlop, and this gave the advantage to Hickman, who got ahead of Ramsey on lap five.

What followed was classic Hickman, as he opened up a gap to Harrison for an eight-second lead at Palo on the final lap.

By now, Todd had taken second from Harrison and passed Dunlop on the road, and was quicker than Hickman on the final lap, but not fast enough. He finished 5.840 seconds behind, but second place confirmed his first Superbike podium at the TT.

Michael Dunlop finished fourth and set the Superbike course record – 135.97mph – on the final lap.

James Hillier beat John McGuinness by two seconds to take fifth place. McGuinness was sixth, just 0.2 seconds behind Jimmy Coward in seventh. Mike Brown, Michael Rutter and Brian McCormack completed the top ten.
