There will be yet another new rider competing at the 2016 Isle of Man TT – Billy Redmayne. He is one of 13 Manx Grand Prix competitors who will join the TT roster in 2016.

And Redmayne – an Isle of Man TT native – was fierce at the 2015 MGP; he won the Junior Manx Grand Prix.

In 2016, Redmayne will compete in the following solo TTs – the RST Superbike, RL360 Superstock, PokerStars Senior TT and the Monster Energy Supersport TT races.

In the latter, Redmayne will pilot a Jack Valentines Valmoto MV Agusta 675, backed by Support our Paras, the Parachute Regiment’s charity, and Des and Dot Collins. He will be only the third rider to compete on the Valmoto MV Agusta at the 37.73-mile Mountain Course following Gary Johnson and Peter Hickman. In the other races, he will race on his own Billy Redmayne Racing Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja backed by

Redmayne has two years at the MGP, and won the Newcomers ‘A’ race in 2014 and the Junior Manx Grand Prix in 2015. He lapped at over 121mph on the opening two laps of the Senior Manx Grand Prix before being forced to retire at Parliament Square on the final lap, while locked in a fierce battle with eventual race winner Malachi Mitchell-Thomas.

In 2016, Redmayne will be able to race more, and is set to compete in the Spring Cup, North West 200, Southern 100, Armoy, Ulster Grand Prix and The Scarborough Gold Cup.

The IOM TT reports that due to Billy being a serving member of the Parachute Regiment he has previously struggled to commit 100% to road racing due to deployments to Afghanistan, but for this season he has the full support from the Regiment to pursue his road racing ambitions enabling him to focus on training and preparing for the challenge.

“I’m really looking forward to making my debut at the TT and looking to improve on my previous times at the Manx Grand Prix. I can’t wait to get going on the MV as I have seen what the bike is capable of and it’s definitely a bike that will help me achieve my goals. I am very lucky to be working with Jack Valentine for my first TT, having someone with his knowledge and experience is going to be awesome,’ Redmayne says.

“As it will be my first go on a big bike around the circuit I will definitely have a lot to learn. Again having such a wealth of knowledge with will help me progress and work towards putting good lap times in.”
