The Milenco by Padgett’s Honda team has announced the re-signing of Conor Cummins for its 2024 road racing campaign, including the Isle of Man TT.

2024 will mark Cummins’ eighth season with the Padgett’s team, and a union with Ian Hutchinson, following a couple of years alongside Davey Todd.

The latter has moved to the TAS Racing BMW team for 2024, in what has effectively become a straight swap with Hutchinson. While there has been significantly more stability in the recent years of Cummins’ racing career, the goal for Cummins is the same as that for Todd and Hutchinson, which is to win races at the Isle of Man TT.

“I’ve taken my time over the off-season to understand what I wanted to achieve in the year ahead and now that all the pieces of the jigsaw are in place, I’m delighted to be staying with the Milenco by Padgett’s Motorcycles team,” Cummins said.

“I’ve had a bit of a reset, analysing everything both on and off track, and I want to go racing properly and be committed to try and win races with the TT being at the top of the list. I’m keen to get back racing and push for wins in 2024. The desire and passion are still very much there, and after discussing everything with Clive, he’s brought everything to the table so together we’ll be throwing the kitchen sink at the TT.

“I know what I want to do and that’s win. I made a good step forward in 2022 with the 133mph lap and was looking forward to doing more of the same last year only for a virus to scupper that. I missed a lot of track time and in the races I did, I could only really push hard on the first lap; after that the head and body were exhausted. Obviously, that was out of my control, but I’ll be doing everything possible to put in my best ever TT performances.”

On being partnered by Hutchinson again this year, Cummins said: “I’m delighted to be team-mate to Ian and, first and foremost, I’m delighted for him to be back racing as he’s been through a lot. It’s great to see him back and with Hutchy, Clive and the whole team, we’re in an extremely strong position. I’m not here to make the numbers up and I’m determined to have my best season in racing, not just at the TT but at every circuit.”

Cummins will compete, alongside Hutchinson, in the two Superbike-class races, both Superstock races, and both Supersport races at the 2024 Isle of Man TT, all on Honda machinery, which will take place between 27 May and 8 June.
