TT2012 On-Bike Laps: DVD, Download, Discount!
“Find out what 19-times TT winner John McGuinness experiences as he threads his 1000cc Superbike between the hedges, with walls and houses just inches away, at speeds approaching 200mph on public roads with no margin for error.
“You'll be leaping back from the screen as the scenery flashes past the camera and slower machines are caught and passed, and before long you'll find yourself leaning into the hundreds of bends, almost as if you are living a racing lap of the TT course yourself.
“TT 2012 On-Bike Laps Volume One features five laps filmed during the 2012 Practice Week, as low-lying sun, overcast skies and slower machines add extra dimensions to the extreme challenge of the spectacular public road course.
“Rising TT star James Hillier is first out, and a combination of forward and rear-facing cameras let you watch him first shadow Cameron Donald, then display his skills as he negotiates the 1000cc Kawasaki past slower rivals on a lap which takes him little more than 18 minutes.
“Guy Martin copes with glaring sun and sudden patches of almost complete darkness as he weaves the Tyco Suzuki Superbike between the hedges on his way to an average lap speed of 127mph, all captured by the forward-facing camera.
“We move to three wheels to join Tony Baker and Fiona Baker Milligan in their Suzuki-powered outfit, the forward-facing camera allowing you to see what the passenger sees as you catch – and fly pastrival outfits on the tight narrow roads.
“Then, staying with the chairs, TT legend Dave Molyneux and passenger Patrick Farrance offer an on-board master class in controlled riding on the Mountain course. The forward-facing camera mounted in front of Farrance captures a smooth, but fast lap – at an average of 109.958mph.
“Finally Wilson Craig Honda Superbike-mounted Cameron Donald has a busy day at the office, weaving his way through the traffic as he blitzes the lap to record a 129.075mph average – and his forward-facing camera lets you share the roller coast ride.
“TT 2012 On-Bike Laps Volume Two features five laps filmed during the 2012 Dainese Superbike, Sure Sidecar 1, Monster Energy Supersport 1 and Royal London 360 Superstock races, including the chance to join two TT legends as they add yet more victories to their Mountain course tally and ride the course at more than 130mph.
“From the Superbike race we compare the first lap exploits of Honda TT Legend great McGuinness and Wilson Craig Honda-mounted Donald. Forward-facing cameras record the opening laps of both, as the pair traded the lead and recorded average speeds around the 37.7-mile course in excess of 130.2mph!
