Padgetts MMCG Racing will have three of last year's Isle of Man TT race winners in their ranks for this year's event after announcing their rider line-up for the 2012 event. 17-time winner John McGuinness leads the way, joined by both of last year's Supersport winners, Bruce Anstey and Gary Johnson.

The trio, who will represent Padgetts in the Superstock and Supersport races, boast a total of 26 TT race wins and team owner Clive Padgett can't wait to see them in action.

“We’ve got a great team again this year and I know that all the lads enjoy racing for our team. Everyone gets on really well and feels part of the family when they climb onto our bikes. I’m delighted to welcome Gary on board and I’m sure we can help him, and John and Bruce, to add to their wins on the mountain course. Roll on June.”

Paul Phillips, TT and Motorsport Manager, Isle of Man Government, has also welcomed the news and expects Padgetts to be fighting for further success this year.

“Padgetts has established themselves as the team to beat on the Isle of Man. There’s a saying on the Isle of Man that to win the race you’ve got to finish it and Padgetts consistent performance has meant that they have had an unbeatable record over the last few years.”
