ITV4 will again be showing the UK exclusive Isle of Man TT Races

The 2010 Isle of Man TT will once again receive prominent television coverage on ITV4, as well as ITV Player
Freeview channel ITV4 has confirmed it will show daily highlights of the Isle of Man TT for the duration of the annual road racing event, as well as make coverage available through its on-demand service ITV Player.

An hour-long highlights programme will air every evening at 9pm from Thursday 3rd June to Thursday 10th June, while there will also be a one-hour daily highlight show at
10pm on Friday 11th June before a full two-hour review show at 7pm on Sunday 13th June.

This year, for the first time, all of the ITV4 programmes will be available on ITV Player and geo locked simulcast on itv.com. The action will also be replayed on giant screens on
Douglas as part of the TT 'FanZone' activity.

The coverage will be centred around the five solo and two sidecar races for conventional bikes; the PokerStars Superbike TT, the Monster Energy Supersport 1 and 2 races, the Royal
London 360 Superstock class, the Dainese Senior TT and the Sure sidecar races. Additionally, there will also be a close look at the TT Zero electric bike class as these innovative machines take up the mountain course challenge.

Features will include interviews, insight and behind the scenes footage with all of the leading TT riders including John McGuinness, Guy Martin, Cameron Donald, Ian Hutchinson,
Michael Dunlop and local racer Conor Cummins. Reaction from Moto GP stars Jorge Lorenzo, Loris Capirossi and Angel Nieto will also be shown as they visit the Island for the first time and participate in parade laps.

Interviews with celebrities such as Ross Noble, The Prodigy's Keith Flint, Danny John Jules – the cat in popular TV series 'Red Dwarf' and Razorlight's Johnny Burrell, who will all be on the Isle of Man this year, are also planned.

The programmes will be presented by leading ITV sports anchor Craig Doyle with commentary from ex racing legends Steve Parrish and Jamie Whitham, both of whom have raced the TT course. Local rider and former TT winner Richard 'Milky' Quayle will also provide expert analysis.
