"Best ever TT coverage....get the full feel of speed around the course" Motorcycle News
Join the world’s greatest road racers to experience the
awesome 2009 Isle of Man TT from on board the bikes!
This DVD features three complete on-bike laps of the
legendary Mountain Course recorded during the record-breaking 2009 TT, plus a
complete on board race from Billown. It was the fastest-ever TT, and now you
can get as close as possible to the action from the 37.73-mile circuit.
Courtesy of the latest filmmaking technology deployed by North One Television,
we bring you four thrilling, edge-of-the-seat laps.
First up is TT legend John McGuinness, putting his HM Plant
Honda Supersport bike through its paces in practice. The camera is positioned
on the back of the 600cc machine, showing the outright lap record holder
jumping out of his seat on the bumps and leaning into each of the hundreds of
bends. You’ll see exactly how close the riders get to the scenery – you’d swear
he’s scraping the hedges between Glen Helen and Cronk-Y-Voddy, and his bounce
through Barregarrow will have you leaping out of your seat!
Gary Johnson had the honour of leading away the Dainese
Superbike race, and the footage captured by the rear-facing camera lets you see
his 1000cc Uel Duncan Honda bucking and sliding as he races into lap one. Just
10 seconds later, McGuinness was off and by Ballaugh he’s with Johnson – this
jaw-dropping footage lets you share the pressure of having the TT’s fastest man
bearing down on you.
The ever determined Guy Martin is our guide to a lap of the
Pokerstars Senior TT, the camera mounted low on the left-hand side of the
Hydrex Honda Superbike. You’ll witness Martin’s incredible precision as he
guides the 1000cc missile around the lap, just inches from the kerbs. The speed
he catches, and passes, a rival shows just how committed Martin is.
Finally, we bring you a complete TT race from on board! The
4.25-mile Billown circuit hosted the Lightweight 250cc TT, and we experience
all eight laps of one race courtesy of Barry Davidson. The rear-facing camera
brings you the mass start and some truly nail-biting passes.
TT 2009 On-bike Laps Volumes 1 and 2 are also available.
