Hutchinson will ride for MV Agusta in the Supersport TT

Ian Hutchinson will ride a factory-supported MV Agusta in this year’s Supersport races at the Isle of Man TT. 

The Yorkshireman has penned a deal to compete on board an MV Agusta F3 675 with the Tsingtao Racing team for the TT’s two 600cc races alongside his duties for Paul Bird Motorsport riding a ZX10-R in the Superbike, Superstock and Senior races. 

Hutchinson shot to fame in 2010 as he clinched a record 5 TT victories in one week but has since struggled with ongoing problems after twice breaking his leg, once at Silverstone in 2010 and again a year later while stunt riding at the London Motorcycle Show.

The MV Agusta F3 675 made its TT debut in 2013 in the capable hands of Gary Johnson but a flurry of technical problems put pay to any real challenge for the Lincolnshireman.

This year’s Supersport races look set to be ultra-competitive with the TT’s best riders on top machinery across the board. Fans’ favourite Guy Martin will line up on a Triumph 675, Gary Johnson and the Dunlop brothers are R6-mounted and Bruce Anstey, Cameron Donald, John McGuinness and Conor Cummins will all compete aboard CBR6000RRs.
