Shaun Anderson

A regular on the roads both in his native Northern Ireland and on the Isle of Man for more than a decade, the burly Anderson first came to prominence on the Mountain Course in 2010 when he not only finished second in the Manx Grand Prix Senior Newcomers race but also took fifth in the feature Senior race proper.

Since then, he’s been quietly going about his business at the TT, steadily progressing in terms of both results and speeds. He’s established himself as a regular fixture inside the top twenty, particularly in the 1000cc classes which suit his stature more but in 2019 he finished all five of his races inside the top twenty. He can count 12th in that year’s Senior race and 13th in the 2018 Superbike race amongst his best results but a keen supporter of the TT Zero class, it’s here where his highest finish has come with sixth in 2018. He also enjoyed a strong year in 2022 when, riding for Buildbase Suzuki, he finished 9th and 12th in the Superbike and Senior races.

Racing is very much a family affair for the Banbridge rider with his Dad never far away and a key part in his racing success, the combination seeing them score many of their best results. A move to NW Racing in 2019 and then with Buildbase Suzuki and Wilcock Consulting in 2022 continued with more top 12 results and a move to Team Classic Suzuki the following year saw more of the same as well as a maiden 130mph lap.

Away from racing, Anderson’s skills have been utilised by Austrian manufacturer KTM, fulfilling the role of Project Leader of On-Road Motorcycle Development since 2015 and he continues to carry out this role alongside his own company, Anderson Race Developments.


Shaun’s been steadily going about his business for the last decade and has been getting quicker and quicker. He hasn’t always had the biggest of budgets but he’s very articulate and good with machine set-up which has seen him get the results that he has. He clearly had the potential to join the 130mph Club and this was finally fulfilled when he joined Team Classic Suzuki in 2023, also giving them four top 12 finishes.
