It takes guts to race in the TT, luck and skill to finish and raw talent to win. TT 2004 saw emphatic wins, lap and race records and plenty of bottle! With the racing even hotter than the weather, records fell in the Duke Formula 1, Production 1000, Junior & Sidecar classes with the outright lap record lifted to 127.68 mph by John McGuinness. McGuinness went on to take wins in the Formula 1, Junior TT and Lightweight 400, to join TT greats, Hailwood, Dunlop, Hislop and Jefferies in the elite hat-trick club.
Bruce Anstey, Ryan Farquhar and Adrian Archibald also took race wins whilst Dave Molyneux clocked up a record-equalling 10th sidecar win.
This official review captures the racing, the records, the riders and the atmosphere generated by one of the largest TT crowds for years. The action is captured from all angles, using kerb, on-bike and roadside cameras together with some stunning heli-cam footage, to give you the closest, most exhilarating review of this fantastic festival. It’s not easy for the production team to improve on these excellent reviews each year, but we think even regular viewers will be impressed with this DVD.
DVD extras include on-board laps with Richard Britton featuring, for the first time, on-screen data, displaying the brake light, exact speed and the angle of the bike. Also featured is a lap from a rider-facing camera; don’t miss the clear sky between Britton and bike on a number of occasions! Other features include a John McGuinness practice diary, Top Ten TT riders, TT Trumps and a tribute to David Wood.
