Munich. At the world’s most famous road race event, BMW M 1000 RR riders dominated the races for 1000cc motorcycles. At the 2024 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, they celebrated a triple 1-2 finish. In all three 1000cc races held, there were three wins and second places for the BMW M 1000 RR. The man of the week was Davey Todd (GBR), who first won the Superstock race and then claimed victory in the prestigious Senior TT. Peter Hickman (GBR) was victorious in the Superbike race. These two, along with Josh Brookes (AUS), also took second places on the podiums. With this, the BMW road racers continued the success story for the brand on the Isle of Man, which began exactly 85 years ago with the first victory by Georg Meier.

 

It all started on Sunday, 2nd June, with the Superbike TT race. In an exciting race, Hickman, riding the BMW M 1000 RR of the Monster Energy BMW by FHO Racing team, secured his 14th TT win overall. Todd followed on the Milwaukee BMW Motorrad by TAS Racing M RR in second place, making the event’s first 1-2 success perfect.

 

After bad weather had repeatedly caused dangerous conditions and numerous delays, the first of two planned Superstock TT races was held on Thursday, 6th June. Todd’s star finally rose as he engaged in a close duel with Hickman and ultimately came out on top. Todd celebrated his first-ever victory at the Isle of Man TT, while Hickman stood on the podium as the second-place finisher. The second Superstock race could not be held due to weather conditions and delays.

 

The highlight of the Isle of Man TT is always the prestigious Senior TT. On the late afternoon of Saturday, 8th June, the world’s best road racers took to the final showdown of this race week. In the end, it was again Todd who almost incredulously celebrated his next triumph with a large lead and inscribed his name in the renowned Senior TT winners’ list. For his team, Milwaukee BMW Motorrad by TAS Racing, it was the first victory in this very special race, the Senior TT, in 20 years – accordingly, the jubilation was immense. The second-place finisher was equally enthusiastically received by his team Monster Energy BMW by FHO Racing at the finish line; Australian Brookes secured his first podium in the Senior TT after a previously challenging race week. Team-mate Hickman was dominating the early stages of the Senior TT but a crash ended his path to another potential victory. Hickman was unharmed.

 

Since 2014, BMW road racers have been successful on the Isle of Man with the BMW S 1000 RR and the BMW M 1000 RR. The meeting has been held nine times since then (the 2020 and 2021 events were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic), and they have had no fewer than 22 TT victories.

 

Reactions after the 2024 Isle of Man TT.

 

Marc Bongers, Sporting Director BMW Motorrad Motorsport: “Wow, what an Isle of Man TT! Of course, we had certain expectations beforehand, as BMW road racers have been among the absolute favourites for years, but with 1-2s in all three 1000cc races, even our expectations were exceeded. Congratulations to Davey Todd, who fulfilled a dream with victories in the Superstock TT and then in the prestigious Senior TT, to Peter Hickman, who further expanded his impressive TT victory tally in the Superbike race, and also to Josh Brookes, who for the first time stood on the coveted podium of the Senior TT in second. Congratulations also to the TAS Racing and FHO BMW Motorrad Racing teams, whose hard work made it possible to continue BMW Motorrad’s success story on the Isle of Man with these fantastic results. A big thank you also goes to the many other BMW road racers who again brought numerous RRs of all generations to the start at the Isle of Man this year, also serving as great ambassadors for BMW bikes.”

 

Davey Todd, Milwaukee BMW Motorrad by TAS Racing: “It’s doesn’t feel real, my first TT win and then victory in the Senior TT. We’ve been feeling good the whole time. I just wanted to be in the battle for the win. I knew we had a chance and to give this Senior TT win to the team is awesome. Those last two laps in the Senior TT were the longest laps in my life after I came to the pits seeing I was in P1 with a big gap riding around there, short shifting, nursing the bike. But the Milwaukee BMW Motorrad by TAS Racing team built me a fantastic BMW M 1000 RR. I absolutely love riding it. It never missed a beat. And then the best of pit stops – I got to give all to the team. Now I actually can’t wait 12 months to come back here again. I absolutely loved this TT. This is going to take a while to sink in. This TT has been a dream coming true for me.”

 

Peter Hickman, Monster Energy BMW by FHO Racing: “It’s a rather mixed bag of results for myself with a Superbike TT win, on the podium for the Superstock race and a crash at Ginger Hall whilst leading the Senior TT. A massive thank you to the Monster Energy BMW by FHO Racing team for all their hard work and dedication over this year’s TT. It was a bit frustrating with the lack of track time due to the weather but the bikes have been awesome. Also I must say well done for a mega result for Josh with P2 in the Senior TT. I also want to thank everyone for their messages, I am a bit bruised and very lucky.”

 

Josh Brookes, Monster Energy BMW by FHO Racing: “Honestly, after a week with problems I wasn’t expecting to be at the podium so with second place I feel like I’ve won it. It’s unreal, honestly. A lot of people obviously went out but that’s how it is at TT. You’ve got to take them when you get them, so I’m thrilled. I felt like this is my class, this is the bike I feel the best on. On the big bike I normally ride every weekend in the British Superbike Championship, I feel like home, like it’s my bike, and I feel like I can ride my way on that bike. The BMW M 1000 RR worked perfectly. I went the quickest I have ever been around the course and I genuinely felt like the bike was working superbly. I couldn’t be happier. A big thank you to everyone involved at the Monster Energy BMW by FHO Racing team. To come away with such a result in the big race is mega.”

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at www.bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the “Manual on the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new cars”, available at sales outlets free of charge, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at https://www.dat.de/co2/.
