"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 film 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.
