Talented Manxman Marcus Simpson will make his debut at the Isle of Man TT Races this year, competing in the Supersport and Supertwin categories.
A new chapter in the career of Marcus Simpson
Along with fellow countrymen Nathan Harrison and Jamie Cringle, Simpson forms a new generation of Manx riders making the jump to the TT. He does so after a successful 2022.
The 24-year-old recorded a string of top ten finishes in his first start at the Southern 100 and also enjoyed success in Ireland. With second place overall in the Senior Support Championship, highlights have included winning the Skerries 100 on his Yamaha R6 and second places in the Kells and Armoy RoadRaces.
For Simpson, the TT is the next step in his racing career and the next challenge. In the 2023 season, he will compete in the two 4-lap Supersport races with the Atherstone Accident and Repair Centre Yamaha R6 and the Supertwin races with the LMR Racing Kawasaki.
“Growing up on the Island and as a proud Manxman, competing at the TT has always been a dream of mine and I’m really excited about the challenge and the prospect of racing around the Mountain Course.
I’ve been doing plenty of laps in the van and I’ve been watching onboard laps for years, and I’m also fortunate to have Nick Jefferies [1993 Formula One TT Race winner] as a family friend who’s been helping me prepare.
There aren’t any expectations from anyone in my debut year and I can be anonymous, just going out in each session doing my own thing and putting in as many laps as possible. My aims are simple – to qualify for all my races, to finish all of them and to enjoy myself.”
2023 will be a full year for Simpson with two trips to Spain for testing, followed by starts at the Cookstown 100, the Tandragee 100 and his debut at the North West 200 as he prepares for his first appearance at the Isle of Man TT Races.
