Two great programmes exploring the recent history of the Isle of Man TT, the World’s longest and most prestigious real road race.
My Greatest Moment sees TT winners from 2009 to 2017 talking about their stand out memories of the event.
The familiar TT presentation team of Craig Doyle, Steve Parrish, Steve Plater and new presenter Cameron Donald speak to stars including Michael Dunlop, John McGuinness, Ian Hutchinson, Bruce Anstey, John Holden and Conrad Harrison about the emotions that come with a TT win.
The Perfect Lap sets out to answer the question, ‘How much would the lap record be increased by if all the fastest recorded split times were added together.
After 2016’s lap record breaking madness, it turns out the answer is less than you might imagine. Other than one sector record held by Steve Plater, Ian Hutchinson and Michael Dunlop are the fastest around the rest of the course, showing just how much the pace jumped in 2016.
These fascinating programmes give a real insight into the skill and preparation, both mental and physical, that goes into being at the sharp edge of the Isle of Man TT in the 21st Century.
