Matt Roberts to host TT Event Launch
Matt Roberts, who currently fronts Eurosport’s coverage of the World Superbike and British Superbike Championships and fresh from the Winter Olympics in South Korea, returns to the Isle of Man as the main presenter for the launch of the 2018 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy at the Villa Marina on Wednesday 21st March.
Matt, formerly the BBC’s MotoGP anchorman, will present alongside experienced motorsport commentator Dave Moore.
The event, which is broadcast live on-line, will feature many of the leading solo TT riders including Michael Dunlop, John McGuinness, Peter Hickman, Josh Brookes and Ian Hutchinson as well as some of the leading sidecar competitors.
The evening’s show is seen not only as the official launch of the TT Races but also for the road racing season itself with many of the riders sharing their latest news, team and machine confirmations and their pre-season targets and ambitions as well as anecdotes and indiscreet stories from behind the scenes.
Doors open at 7.00pm for an 8.00pm start with tickets, which are still available, priced at £5 from the Villa Marina box office at www.villagaiety.com. If you can’t be on the Island, you will be able to watch the whole event on the live stream hosted via iomtt.com.
