Stunning line-up for 2013 Isle of Man TT

The Lightweight TT for Supertwin machines has attracted over 70 riders, including McGuinness who is set to make his debut in the class on a Honda CBR500R.

The Sure Sidecar class has also seen the highest number of crews entered since the 2007 centenary TT meeting.

The renaissance of the Formula Two Sidecar class on the Island can clearly be seen not only in the entry of over 60, its highest for a number of years, but also in the number of newcomers, which will be into double figures for 2013.

The legendary Dave Molyneux, again with Patrick Farrance in the chair, will be looking to add to his record tally of 16 wins.
TT & Motorsport Development Manager, Paul Phillips, said: “Despite the global economic downturn, the Isle of Man TT has attracted an incredible entry for 2013 in all classes.

“It is a testament to the TT's enduring appeal that, while many other events are seeing their entry numbers and quality reduce, we are having to turn people away with entries oversubscribed for the majority of our races.”

“It is especially pleasing to see the commitment from all the leading teams and manufacturers, who clearly see the TT as a genuine global marketing platform for their sponsors.”

I hope Josh Brookes goes about the business of learning the island in an appropriate manner, gets home safely and it doesn't affect his short circuit pace too much. I take my hat off to him for having the balls to give it a go at this level in his career - a brave move. Safe riding fellas...
