Senior TT

Davey Todd took victory in the 2024 Senior TT, winning comfortably after both Michael Dunlop and Peter Hickman retired.

Hickman led early, and seemed on course to secure a new lap record on lap two when he crashed at Ginger Hall. He reportedly walked away. Dunlop’s retirement came on lap one in the Mountain section.

That handed an 18-second lead to Davey Todd over Josh Brookes, while Dean Harrison was third.

Todd secured his second TT victory in fine style, ahead of Brookes – who took his second podium – and Dean Harrison who took yet another podium.

James Hillier was fourth, ahead of John McGuinness and Mike Browne who completed the top six, while Nathan Harrison was seventh. Shaun Anderson, Michael Rutter, and Rob Hodson completed the top 10.

Race 1

Peter Hickman took his first victory of the 2024 Isle of Man TT in Superbike Race 1 after drama in the pit stops.

Dean Harrison took the early lead, but Michael Dunlop took the lead on lap two. Dunlop then looked to dominate: he caught Harrison on the road on lap three after the first pit stop from 30 seconds back, and he entered the pits on lap four with a lead of over 20 seconds.

Harrison had used Dunlop’s tow to bring himself back into podium contention, having dropped to fourth on lap three – he was ahead of Hickman entering the pits on lap four.

But that’s where the race changed. Harrison exited the pits right behind Dunlop, which he needed to keep making time on Hickman and even Davey Todd, who was second entering the pits for the second time.

Then Dunlop slowed, visor issues causing him to stop. He got going again but had lost 40 seconds. It seemed advantage Todd, but he had issues of his own in the pits, and now Harrison led from Hickman.

Harrison now had no tow from Dunlop, and that gave the advantage to Hickman, who took the lead at Ramsey on lap five.

What followed was classic Hickman, as he opened a gap on Harrison to lead by eight seconds at Ballaugh on the final lap.

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

Michael Dunlop took fourth place and set the Superbike lap record – 135.97mph – on the final lap.

James Hillier beat John McGuinness by two seconds to finish fifth. McGuinness was sixth, just 0.2 seconds ahead of Jamie Coward in seventh. Mike Browne, Michael Rutter, and Brian McCormack completed the top 10.
