There are a number of big changes to the starting order for this year’s RST Superbike and PokerStars Senior TTs.

Nineteen of the first 20 seeded riders have lapped at over 128mph and between them have a remarkable total of 71 TT victories and 195 podiums, emphasising the fact that the strength of depth and level of competition at the TT is at an all-time high.

David Johnson and Norton Racing have the honour of starting at number one, just reward for their efforts last year but, arguably, the biggest news is the rider who previously went off first but now goes at number five - John McGuinness.
