MotoGP rookie Scott Redding is set to make a guest appearance at this year's Isle of Man TT.

As an ambassador for Bennetts, Redding will be on the Island on Friday 6 June and is planning to take part in a parade lap of the legendary 37.73 mile road course on a Honda Fireblade.

The 21-year-old Gloucestershire rider will also drop the flag at the start of the Bikenation Lightweight TT race, before joining the 40,000 race fans to watch the showcase Senior TT race that afternoon.

Commenting on his first visit to the Island, Redding said: "The TT guys are unique in motorcycle racing. I have huge respect and admiration for what they do.

"The chance to ride round the TT course on a closed road is a brilliant opportunity for me to experience something different and I'm really looking forward to getting out to the Island to meet the TT fans, see the racing first hand and get a lap in as well."

I believe that Michael Laverty (again), Cal Crutchlow & Bradley Smith will also be doin'g the same thing. Knowing that 'non-competitive' lot I would say there would be a bit of banter going on as to who can get the most "air" time.

Would love to be there to watch.
