ITV reveal 2020 TT races programme schedule
ITV4 has confirmed it will be screening six new one-hour TT themed programmes this year, in spite of the absence of new racing.
Three programmes will look at the greatest TT races in the Superbike, Supersport and Senior TT classes since 2009.
There will also be three new documentary features:
In ‘the Dunlop Factor’, ITV4 profiles the nineteen-time TT Race winner. The programme looks at the TT career of the Ballymoney man to date, through TT race highlights and the eyes of his team-mates and rivals providing a unique perspective on the maverick Northern Irish racer.
‘Padgetts, TT Winners’ profiles one of the Isle of Man TT's most enduring and popular teams, Padgett’s Racing. Team boss Clive Padgett shares insights on the privately-run Yorkshire outfit that has become one of the most successful in TT history.
Famous Padgett's alumni John McGuinness, Conor Cummins and Ian Hutchinson who have all stood on the TT podium for the family-run team also provide their insight.
The 37¾ mile TT Mountain Course is 'The Ultimate Challenge' in road racing and this feature programme sees the top riders sharing their thoughts on what makes the TT course so special, including "never-before-seen" on-bike footage of Peter Hickman’s record breaking 135mph lap.
ITV4’s TT programmes will be on air from 8pm on Tuesday 16 June.
