Holding the distinction as the most successful Mountain Course affiliated events competitor during the 2010’s, is 19 times TT winner, three times Senior TT winner Michael Dunlop.
When combining results from the TT Races, Manx Grand Prix and Classic TT, Dunlop’s overall total of podium finishes stands at 33, with 25 of those race wins.
The number 25 also applies to legendary New Zealander Bruce Anstey, who chalked up during the 10’s 25 rostrum finishes including all round well received Lightweight Classic TT success from 2019.
Reigning Senior TT victor Dean Harrison, 23 times TT winner John McGuinness have both acquired 21 top three finishes throughout the 2010-2019 period.
Whilst others to secure 14 plus rostrum placings are Ian Hutchinson (17), James Hillier (16), lead Sidecar exponent John Holden (15), nine times Macau GP Champion Michael Rutter (14) and world’s fastest road racer, outright Mountain Course lap record holder Peter Hickman (14).
