Ben Birchall will lead the Sidecar field away at the 2024 Isle of Man TT as he looks for a 15th TT win.

He might be without his brother, Tom Birchall, alongside him in 2024, but Ben Birchall retains the #1 on the Wyckham Blackwell/Hager LCR Honda outfit for the 2024 Sidecar TTs, which will see him go in search of win number 15 alongside new passenger Kevin Rousseau.

Second away will be Peter Founds and Jevan Walmsley on the FHO Racing DDM Honda, while Ryan and Callum Crowe make will set off third on the Kelproperties Ryde Honda.

Tim Reeves and Mark Wilks will take the fourth starting position with their Bonovo Action Racing Carl Cox Motorsport LCR Honda, while Dave Molyneux and Jake Roberts will be fifth down Bray Hill on the second Kelproperties-backed machine, this time a DMR Kawasaki (Molyneux switching away from the twin-cylinder KTM he has run in recent years).

The second outfit of Carl Cox Motorsport, a Ryde KTM piloted by John Holden and Frank Claeys, will start sixth, ahead of Steve and Matthew Ramsden on the Ramsden Racing RS Motorcycles LCR Honda in seventh. Eighth away will be Lee Crawford and Scott Harvie on the ARC Newton Aycliffe SJH Bodyworks LCR Kawasaki, while the Dave Holden Racing LCR Yamaha of Lewis Blackstock and Patrick Rosney will go from ninth, and Alan Founds and Rhys Gibbons on the Team Founds Racing LCR Yamaha complete the top 10 for the Sidecars grid.

The reveal of the Sidecar TT starting order comes only a few days after that of the Supersport top 20, and surely the Superstock and Superbike starting orders will be published shortly.

The 2024 Isle of Man TT will begin on 27 May and run until 8 June.
