The ‘reigning’ Daryl Blake Construction Southern 100 Sidecar Champions, Pete Founds and Jevan Walmsley head a stellar list of entries for the 2024 Isle of Man Steam Packet Company Southern 100 Road Races, with no less than four previous champions returning with similar ambitions to return home with the coveted title Southern 100 Sidecar Champions 2024.

The two-time champions (2019 & 2022) will have four-time winners Tim Reeves (2013, 2015, 2016 & 2018) and Mark Wilkes to contend with along with  2012 winner Ben Birchall with new passenger Kevin Rousseau making his Billown Course debut.
