Hutchy/Padgetts Partnership Rekindled

Hutchy/Padgetts Partnership Rekindled

As forecast on the Road Racing News podcast, 16 times TT winner Ian Hutchinson is reuniting with Padgetts Racing for roads scene action in 2024.

Obviously when you think of the Hutchinson/Padgetts combination, you immediately think of the illustrious five race wins in a week achievement of 2010.

Additionally, Bingley rider Hutchinson’s Padgetts racing CV also includes Supersport success at the Northwest 200, Steve Henshaw Gold Cup success at Scarborough and four Ulster GP triumphs.

For this year’s Briggs Northwest 200 and TT Races, the 16 times TT winner will be equipped with top calibre 600cc, 1000cc Honda tackle title sponsored by Milenco.

Commenting about returning to race action, after his 2023 season was curtailed after suffering a stroke, Hutchinson who will regain from the ACU, his racing licence in March, stated:

“I was well prepared for 2023 with a lot of testing and training in Spain before I had the stroke.

It was taken away from me again, but I have done what I’ve always done and carried on training.

I’ve done it for years and years. I did it when I had a frame on my leg after 2010 so that I can be ready to go when I need to be because I have never thought it was time to quit.

Despite everything that has happened I have always wanted to keep racing.”

“I am a realist. It would be a miracle to come back and win. I made it happen in Macau in 2013 after the 2010 crash.

I never gave up on it then. I know where I am now, and I know where I can be. Only I can see that.”

Milenco by Padgetts Team Manager Clive Padgett added about re-signing, former world’s fastest road racer Hutchinson.

“It is a match made in heaven. Our record-breaking winning run together began at the Northwest in 2010 and it is a meeting that has always been close to our hearts.”
