NATALIE PINKHAM (The Poker Channel) is co-hosting. They will share all the latest TT news as well as interviewing the top riders and team chiefs. The greatest motorcycling road race in the world is set for another breathtaking festival in 2005 with record speeds expected in all classes. Classes ranging from Supersport Junior TT to Superbikes as well as Sidecars race over the 37ľ mile Snaefell Mountain Course which, outside of the TT period, is open to everyday traffic.
The lap record is an awesome 127.68mph held by John McGuiness on a Yamaha R1. John McGuiness heads the strongest T.T. entry for years, as he aims to become the first man to lap the world famous Mountain Circuit at over 130mph.
TAS Suzuki field Adrian Archibald and Bruce Anstey, whilst DMRR Honda Racing have Ian Lougher and Richard Britton in their colours. Add in MSS Discovery Kawasaki star, Ryan Farquhar and McGuinness’ teammate for the event at Yamaha, Jason Griffiths, and you have the recipe for some frantic action without adding in any of the privateer teams and riders nor the latest batch of newcomers to the event.
