TT 2024: String of Positives For BE/RK Racing

The Burrows Engineering/Richardson Kelly Racing team took a string of positives from a largely cold weather induced 2024 TT Races.

Sole team rider, paddock favourite, Chasin the Racin host Dominic Herbertson gave the team their second, his first TT podium finish in the Metzeler Super Twins race, following a quality display astride Graeme Hanna provided S1-R Paton tackle.

Herbertson additionally sealed fourth, ninth, eleventh place finishes from the Entire Cover Insurance, Royal London 360 Superstock, Monster Energy Supersport race-1 contests.

Additionally acquiring a new PB lap speed of 130.497 mph, (BE/RK Racing’s first 130 Mph lap), the former Classic TT winner stated post Saturday’s four-lap Milwaukee Senior race (DNF due to clutch failure).

“My first TT is complete with the Burrows Engineering / RK Racing squad. We have achieved personal bests on all the bikes this week which is a big positive.

Riding a Superbike around here is a massive challenge as I’ve found out, but we done a good job with the limited laps in practice with 4 bikes to try get into a window.

I turned up here this year not expecting a podium, not machinery wise but from myself because Graeme Hanna of IFS provided a fantastic machine and the Burrows boys had it faultless all week.

I’m glad everyone was in the race and the podium was earned on merit. The 130.5 in the Superstock race and a top 10 was a great result.

I have a lot to take away from this TT and build on, but I am happy with PB’s in every class. Thank you to the Burrows Engineering / RK Racing squad for their tireless work in the past two weeks.”

Team Principal John Burrows added:

“It’s been a good two weeks on the grand scheme of things. The schedule got knocked about a lot and it was a tough TT weather wise. Results wise, obviously another TT podium for my team was the cherry on top, it’s a great feeling walking into that winner’s enclosure.

On the big bikes, I really hoped Dom could get the bikes round at over 130mph this week and he did so that was a big box ticked.

We had our issues with mechanicals, but it wasn’t something the team or I could have foreseen.

Whilst it was disappointing at the time in hindsight, Dom put all our bikes round the course faster than they have ever been and he did a great job for the team.

Thanks to all the boys in the team for their work over the fortnight and all our loyal sponsors for their support.”
