M-CNC provide bespoke engineering for iconic TT race

Bespoke engineering is the cornerstone of what M-CNC Precision Engineering offer. It’s just one of the reasons why Riders Racing of Riders Motorcycles use our services. We’re very proud of our ten year legacy of working with Riders Racing who, like us, are a Somerset-based business.

We have a long history of providing bespoke engineering for Riders superbikes. Last year we were asked to develop a bespoke quick release fuel cap (designed to speed up re-fuelling times), for use on bikes at the 2016 Isle of Man TT tournament.

M-CNC were delighted when Riders superbikes asked us to help out once again – this time for the the 2017 Isle of Man TT. M-CNC used their engineering knowledge to manufacture bespoke parts for three new bikes, all of which would be used during the iconic races.

The parts were used on three Riders superbikes (a Triumph, a BMW and a Kawazaki) all of which were ridden by Yeovil-based superbike racer Martin Jessop.

We’re delighted to report that Martin successfully competed in five races – the results were:

  • Race 1: RST Superbike TT on the BMW. Finished 10th (reaching a maximum speed of 124.7mph)
  • Race 2: Monster Energy Supersport TT on the Triumph. Finished 12th (reaching a maximum speed of 120.4mph)
  • Race 3: RL360 Quantum Superstock TT on the BMW. Finished 12th (reaching a maximum speed of 123.7mph)
  • Race 4: Bennetts Lightweight TT on the Kawazaki. Finished on podium in 2nd (reaching a maximum speed of 118.4mph)
  • Race 5: Senior TT on the BMW. Finished 9th (reaching a maximum speed of 127.2mph)
