Leading racers to promote TT at London Bike Show

Fans will have a chance to meet some of the world's greatest road racers in London this weekend.
John McGuinness leads a star-studded list of top road racers due at London Bike Show.

The 15-times Isle of Man TT winner will be joined by Conor Cummins – the world's fastest road racer – and Ian Hutchinson, who won two TT races in one day in 2009. Fans' favourite Guy Martin will also be on hand to help promote the 2010 TT at the Excel Exhibition Centre.

On Saturday, the racers will be taking part in a chat show, as well as teaming up in a quiz against a team of motorcycle journalists. Fans will also get the chance to ask their own questions and pick up signed memorabilia.

The recently appointed Official Travel Partner of the TT – Regency Travel – will also be at the show to advise fans about travelling to the TT. Regency Travel provides a one-stop shop for all TT visitors including travel, accommodation, excursions, transfers, car rental, ground support and 24-hour emergency assistance. The team is also able to arrange group travel and grandstand and VIP hospitality tickets. The company will be promoting a special London-to-Isle-of-Man TT package at the London Bike Show

Isle of Man Tourism and Leisure Minister Martyn Quayle said:

“London is a key market for the TT and this show is part of our strategy for promoting the event. We have excellent travel links to the capital with daily flights from London City, London Gatwick and also flights from London Luton airports.”

“This not only makes it easy for fans to travel but means that the area offers a real opportunity for us to encourage people who have not yet been to the Island to make 2010 the year of their first visit.”
