Former British Supersport title contender Hudson Kennaugh will make his Isle of Man TT debut in 2010.

The South African, still seeking a full time British Championship ride for 2010, finished runner-up in the 2008 British Supersport Championship and fifth in that year's World Supersport Championship round at Brands Hatch.

Also present on the newcomers' list for TT2010 are Stephen Thompson, a leading contender at both the Macau Grand Prix and North West 200, plus fellow British Superstock regulars Daniel Hegarty, Kenny Gilbertson and James Hurrell.

Meanwhile, David Jones will be one of the youngest riders on the grid, the 21-year having finished in solid fifth place in last year's British Supersport Cup.
