TT Legends will debut on ITV4 at 8.30pm on Monday 4th February, 2013

There are a couple of new televisual highlights coming up for motorcycle fans in February on ITV4!
One is a documentary series about motorcycle TT racing which does what it says on the tin - details the 'behind the scenes world' of the TT - from the viewpoint of the Honda TT Legends Team.

This will feature HM Plant sponsored TT Legend : John McGuinness who has been a regular visitor to BikeWise over the years through his connection with HM Plant
 
This film was made by Gaucho Productions, who were given exclusive access to the Honda TT Legends team during the tough 2012 season. The film crew followed the racers, both out on the track and between races, as they competed in the World Endurance Championship and raced in the Isle of Man TT, the NW200, the Le Mans 24-hour and the Suzuka 8-hour. The documentary team followed them when they were not racing, filming them when they were relaxing and recovering after the races and finding out about these ordinary but extraordinary men. The series is in-depth and fly on the wall, lasting for eight episodes, and shows all the highs and lows of this dedicated team as they moved through the season, taking on some of the toughest motorcycle races out there. John McGuinness John McGuinness AKA 'The Morecombe Missile' who is an ex brickie and mussel picker who obviously fancied a bit of a career change, is in the Honda TT Legends team. He is famous for winning the Isle of Man TT a staggering nineteen times! Other members of the Team are the Aussie Cameron Donald who has won the TT twice and Simon Andrews who was the fastest newcomer in the TT in 2011 - pretty impressive form for all three racers.
Featuring action from the World Endurance Championship, The Isle of Man TT, and the North West 200 and the Suzuka 8-hour, the eight part series will hit the screens on ITV4 on Monday 4 February. Given the characters in the team, it’s going to be interesting and entertaining in equal measure.
Make sure you don’t miss out!

TT Legends is an eight-part series which will debut on ITV4 at 8.30pm on Monday 4th February, 2013.

The other treat is a one-off documentary called 'Grand Prix Racer' which was filmed during the 2012 Manx Grand Prix, and gives an in-depth insight into this famous and gruelling race. Grand Prix Racer will air on Tuesday 5th February at 8pm so don't let the two-for-one pizza in the pub tempt you out on Monday or Tuesday in early February, sit back and enjoy the ride!
