Teesside's Davey Todd secured his first Isle of Man TT Senior race win and his second success of the 2024.

The Brotton rider claimed his maiden victory on Thursday in the Superstock class, but he went one better on Saturday by winning the TT's showpiece feature race - the high point of his career to date.

Davey said: "It doesn't feel real. I got my first TT win a few days ago and we've been feeling good the whole time. I wanted to be in the battle for the win and I knew we had a chance with this one.

"I can't wait until next year already. I can't believe we have 12 months to come back here again. I loved this TT. This is going to take a while to sink it, it's been a dream come true for me."

Northern Ireland motorcycle legend Hector Neill, the founder of the iconic TAS Racing Team, who run the Milwaukee BMW Motorrad bike that carried Todd to his triumph, said: "It is like a dream come true. I came up here to support Davey, thinking he might get on the podium. We would have been delighted with that.

"But to come and win the Senior TT after all these years since our last, it is a dream come true."

He added: "What a day. I couldn't believe it.

"I came up to the winner's enclosure early so I would get in, then I thought I maybe shouldn't have done that as it might be bad luck. Davey was cruising at that stage."

Davey had only made the move to the Milwaukee outfit after two years with the Padgett's Motorcycles team with whom he took a first TT podium in the 2022 Superstock Race and won last year's British National Superstock Championship.
