Following the success of T.T. Chat Show 2004, the event returns for 2005, and the organisers are promising an even bigger show this time around.
Organised by T.T. Rider Liaison Officers Paul Phillips and Richard ‘Milky’ Quayle along with Manx Radio T.T.’s Chris Kinley, the 2004 Chat Show featured top riders like Ian Lougher, Adrian Archibald, Ryan Farquhar and Dave Molyneux, and raised over £5,000 for charity.
The year’s line up includes the likes of John McGuinness, Gus Scott, Guy Martin, Martin Finnegan and some of those already mentioned, taking to the Villa Marina stage for a second year in a row. The public will be invited to ask the riders their own questions again, so if you have ever wanted to know what your favourite rider thinks on a particular subject, this is your chance to find out. The rider’s involved will also be signing autographs and posing for pictures after the Chat Show so bring your camera!
This year the evening will also feature for the first time ‘They Think it’s all a Question of T.T!’ hosted by ‘Milky’ Quayle and featuring some of your favourite T.T. personalities, as you have never seen them before!
The night will also feature the chance to win a pillion lap with outright T.T. lap record holder and six times T.T. winner John McGuinness, whilst there will also be an auction for a lap of the Mountain Circuit on board the Greenlight Television Helicopter during an actual race!
T.T. Chat Show 2005 takes place on Thursday June the 2nd at the Villa Marina, Douglas, with doors opening at 7:30 pm for an 8:00 pm start. Tickets are priced £4 and will be available from the Villa Marina Box Office shortly. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Joey Dunlop Foundation Isle of Man Ltd.
