Crutchlow to lap TT course

Cal Crutchlow joins Mick Doohan, Nicky Hayden and Ian Hutchinson in completing a lap of the Isle of Man TT mountain course this year.
Cal Crutchlow has become the latest high-profile motorcycle racer to confirm his presence at this year's Isle of Man TT by taking part in a parade lap of the mountain course.

The 25-year-old, who currently lives on the Isle of Man, is enjoying an impressive rookie MotoGP season with Tech 3 Yamaha having risen through the ranks of the British Superbike Championship, World Supersport Championship and the World Superbike Championship.

He is amongst a number of big names to be visiting the TT this year, including Mick Doohan and MotoGP rival Nicky Hayden, with whom he will take to the course to complete the Arai parade lap.

“As a resident of the Isle of Man I'm obviously aware of the importance of the TT Races. I've been round the course many times but I've never had the chance to lap on a closed road. I'm really looking forward to experiencing the mountain course close up.”

TT and Motorsport Manager Paul Phillips was delighted to be inviting Crutchlow on board.

“Cal approached us when he heard that we were scheduling a parade lap for Mick Doohan and asked if we could accommodate him at the same time.

“We were delighted to help as he is one of the world's leading racers and his endorsement will boost the profile of the event in the Mountain Course's centenary year.”

3000 road deaths each year in the UK. 600 pedestrians killed each year in the UK. 48 deaths in the UK as a result of assault by sharp object in 2010 5 deaths caused by falling out of bed in the UK in 2010 200 deaths at the TT in 100 years. I would ban beds, sharp objects, walking and traffic before worrying about the TT.
