There are in-depth rider profiles featuring all the leading solo and sidecar riders at your fingertips including fastest lap, podiums and race wins, as well as a short career biography. The app features an interactive map with detailed descriptions of all the key sectors around the 37 3/4 mile course while an 'on board' video voiced by TT rider liaison officer, and former race winner, Richard 'Milky' Quayle gives you the inside track on tackling the famous TT Mountain Course.
The rolling news feed will keep you informed of all the developments on the track as well as track conditions, weather and all the latest news from the world's leading road race as well feeds to the TT's youtube page while you can debate all the latest stories via the official twitter and facebook page and or get up to the minute developments with the RSS feeds.
