The Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy will burst onto TV screens on ITV4 this evening and around the world from Thursday, and you can catch the latest action anywhere in the world either through leading TV broadcasters, or by downloading the international highlights shows in countries that the TT isn’t being screened via the iomtt.com website.
ITV4’s coverage in the UK kicks off at 9pm with an in depth look at 11 time TT Race winner Ian Hutchinson called ‘Hutchy: Miracle Man’. The one-hour show chronicles the Yorkshire rider’s battle back from serious injury to glory in last year’s TT Races and previews his 2016 campaign.
Tuesday’s show turns the spotlight on the sidecars and looks at the leading contenders for honours in 2016 while Wednesday’s programme, called ‘Steve and James’s road trip’ visits some of the people who live around the course and hears their personal stories of living with the races.
The racing focus kicks off on Thursday 2nd June with the TT Preview Show at 10pm with final qualifying highlights on Friday 3rd June ahead of a packed week of racing action from Saturday.
And note that you can now download all of the international highlights shows via the iomtt.com website – priced at just £6.99 for all 10 international highlights programmes which start on Thursday- so you can now watch TT coverage wherever you are in the world.
