Auto Number Plates Sponsor Isle of Man TT Winner Dean Harrison

Auto Number Plates is delighted to announce that it is sponsoring three-time Isle of Man TT winner Dean Harrison ahead of the 2024 season.


The Bradford-based rider recently signed for Honda Racing UK after spending almost a decade with DAO Kawasaki, formerly Silicone Engineering Kawasaki, and will compete on board the new Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade at this year's Isle of Man TT and North West 200. Harrison will join TT legend John McGuinness and 25 year old Manxman Nathan Harrison as part of Honda’s factory line-up on the roads. Speaking at the team’s line-up reveal back in November 2023, Dean said:


“I can’t wait to begin a new chapter with Honda Racing UK and I jumped at the chance when this opportunity came about. I have always been a Honda fan, and Honda is the way I want to go.


“I am also really looking forward to being part of a multi-rider team after riding in a solo team for so long. To be able to see each other's data and collaborate on ideas is going to be of great value to me.”


Harrison boasts an excellent record in road racing events, with three victories around the Isle of Man’s famous mountain course, with 26 podiums in total - the eighth most of all time. In 2023, his best result came in the showpiece Milwaukee Senior TT where he claimed an admirable
second place, splitting Peter Hickman and Michael Dunlop with an average speed of 132.097mph. Away from the TT, Harrison is also a regular at the Classic TT, Southern 100, North West 200 and Oliver’s Mount, where he has enjoyed podiums across the board. In fact, he has more than 100 wins at the Mount, including eight at the Cock o’ The North meeting in 2023.


In addition to his road racing exploits, the 35 year old will also be continuing to compete in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship, where he will be joined by 2023 BSB champion Tommy Bridewell who makes the switch from Ducati machinery, as well as Northern Irishman Andrew Irwin. Harrison has a solid record in BSB since his debut at Silverstone in 2017, starting more than 120 races in what is widely considered to be the best domestic motorcycle racing
championship in the world, and regularly scoring points.


As a personal sponsor, Auto Number Plates will have unprecedented access to the Yorkshireman as he competes in the 2024 racing season, and therefore be able to bring you exclusive content including behind-the-scenes footage of racing events and in-depth interviews, so keep your eyes peeled on our website and social media channels!
