For the first time ever Men & Motors has the EXCLUSIVE UK rights (excluding N. Ireland) to coverage of the spectacular 2002 Isle of Man TT races bringing the highlights of the action straight to your living room.

Circumstances last year meant that the races could not take place so for TT fans UK-wide who've been hanging on for the last two years, there is more than enough TT action to compensate. Alongside coverage of the races, Men & Motors also delivers some passionate programmes to bump up the racing week including THE HISTORY OF THE TT, HONDA TT GOLDEN YEARS and MAD SUNDAY.

Top presenter LOUISE BRADY will be hosting the event exclusively for Men & Motors. An all action girl, Louise is known for programmes involving thrill seeking cars and motorbikes. She is famed for presenting shows such as Car Crazy Lancashire, Motorweek (both on Men & Motors), Roadtest (Sky) and Top Gear Gti (UK Horizons).

Louise is passionate and knowledgeable about sports, bikes, birds and travel and her bike mania made her the obvious choice to present the TT week. Not short of a challenge, Louise will be bringing us up to speed with the latest news and highlights from each race day so fans can relive the experience and catch up on what they missed. She'll also be getting the lowdown, on and off track with top racers and organisers.
