Metzeler
is Official Tyre
of the Isle of Man TT

Metzeler will be the Official Tyre of the most iconic motorcycle road race until 2027

Metzeler has been selected by the Isle of Man TT Races as the Official Tyre. The most famous motorcycle road race in the world, has chosen Metzeler as its sole Official Tyre for the five-year period 2023-2027. The Tourist Trophy has been run since 1907 on the road circuit of the Snaefell Mountain Course, a 60.720 km track on the Isle of Man. Over the years it has become an iconic competition characterised by charm, tradition, glory, passion and adrenaline, values also shared by Metzeler, who boast of a history of over a century and a half full of motorsport successes and technology.

The RACETEC RR tyres used by Metzeler riders have been developed thanks to Metzeler's experience in Road Racing. These most challenging races, do not take place on smooth prepared race circuits but on roads open to the public throughout the year and where all the situations that any motorcyclist may have to face on a daily basis can be found. It is precisely for this reason why Metzeler has chosen road racing as a testing and development ground. Our participation in Road Racing has enriched Metzeler’s know-how and been instrumental in the continuous development and improvement to our successful tyres.

John McGuinness

John McGuinness

A man who needs no introduction to road race fans all over the world, John McGuinness is the third most successful Isle of Man TT rider ever.  The Morecambe Missile has logged 47 podiums and 23 wins and remains a firm crowd favourite. He returns TT 2024, aboard the new Honda Fireblade.

Davey Todd

Josh Brookes

27-year-old Todd, is rightfully regarded as one of the brightest prospects coming through on the roads. The sixth fastest rider around the TT with a fastest lap of 132.982mph lines up in 2024 with Milwauke BMW Mottorad by Tas Racing piloting the flagship M1000 RR in the big bike races. Not wishing to rest on his laurels, he will also race on a Ducati V2 Panigale in Supersport and compete on Kawasaki machinery in the Supertwin races.

Michael Rutter

Michael Rutter

2024 marks the 30th year of competing on the road  and ‘The Blade’ shows no sign of hanging up his distinctive black and gold leathers as he aims to equal his late father Tony Rutter’s tally of race starts on the Isle of Man. A seven-time TT winner and long-time Metzeler campaigner, Michael recently saw a waxworks likeness of himself unveiled in Macau to commemorate his record nine wins at the Armco lined Macau GP street circuit! Riding once again with Batham Racing in 2024.

Nathan Harrison

Mike Browne

After an injury plagued 2023, Hometown hero Nathan Harrison, prepares to toe the start line in 2024 riding again for Honda Racing. Under the watchful eye of TT legend, John McGuiness, the 25 year is ready to pilot the new 2024 Honda Fireblade on the roads. A talented and popular figure on the Isle of Man, Nathan will no doubt draw on significant local support during his 2024 TT campaign.

James Hillier

James Hillier

James returns in 2024 with two teams!  Switching to Honda power, with the WTF Racing Team for Superstock and Superbike classes and returning to Supersport racing with former team Bournemouth Kawasaki.

Jamie Coward

Jamie Coward

The winner of the 2022 TT Privateer Trophy, Jamie has quietly raced somewhat under the radar, althouth with a fastest lap of 132.096mph remains the 12th fastest rider around the TT course.  Returning with KTS racing for a third year, Jamie will be contesting every class on a mixture of Honda, and Kawasaki machinery. Looking to build on his two podiums, the 33-year-old Yorkshireman remains one to watch.

Dom Herbertson

Dom Herbertson

This likeable lumberjack, podcaster and racer always brings a smile to the paddock with his unmistakable Geordie accent and laugh. But once behind the visor Dom is a steely competitor, a regular top 10 finisher, and a member of the 130mph club. Herbertson teams up with the well-regarded Burrows Engineering team for his 2024 assault, with the ambition of competing in every single solo class. The host of the popular Chasin’ the Racin’ podcast will definitely be making noise at this years TT!
