Changes aplenty as starting order for the 2024 Supersport TT is revealed

Impact Images

The seeded entry list for the 2024 Supersport TT has been revealed with Michael Dunlop eyeing another double victory as part of a line-up demonstrating a number of key changes in the field.

Dunlop was the dominant winner of both Supersport races during the 2023 Isle of Man TT, successes that contributed to him being placed just a single victory shy of matching the all-time record held by late uncle, Joey Dunlop.

The Ulsterman - who became the first rider to lap the Mountain Course in excess of 130mph aboard a middleweight machine - returns to defend his victories with a unchanged set-up as part of his eponymous MD Racing team aboard a Yamaha R6.


Similarly, TT rival Peter Hickman - who matched Dunlop in winning four races across the 2023 TT fortnight - will race his self-prepared K2 Trooper by PHR Triumph STR765 RS. While the Mountain Course overall lap record holder trailed Dunlop in the Supersport class last year, his build-up programme for the 2024 TT included an outing in the Daytona 200 last month.

While Dunlop and Hickman aren't changing their winning formulas for the 2024 Supersport TT, there are a number of changes elsewhere in the line-up.

Chief among them is Dean Harrison, who will look to take a higher step on the podium aboard the new Honda CBR600RR as part of the Japanese manufacturer's factory-backed effort, while the updated machine will also be campaigned by Milenco by Padgett's Motorcycles pair Ian Hutchinson and Conor Cummins, plus Jackson Racing's Paul Jordan, who will lead the field off as the first starter.

A new addition to the field will also be the TAS Racing-prepared, Powertoolmate-backed Ducati Panigale V2 steered by Davey Todd, who will attempt to take the Italian manufacturer - which dominated the short track Supersport classes in WorldSSP and British Supersport last year - to its first TT win since 1985.

Elsewhere, Boyce Precision Engineering by Russell Racing will stick with its Yamaha R6 but have two new faces lining up in double British Superbike Champion Josh Brookes and up-and-comer Mike Browne, while Dominic Herbertson will also ride the Iwata firm's machine representing Burrows Engineering by RK Racing.


After it was given its TT debut by Hickman in 2022, the Triumph STR765 RS is well represented with Jamie Coward and KTS Racing swapping to the British motorcycle, together with Bathams Racing duo Craig Neve and Michael Rutter, plus Ashcourt Racing's Lee Johnston.

Kawasaki is represented by Bournemouth Racing and James Hillier, while there will be a handful of Suzuki entrants within the top twenty starters too.
