TT becomes 'Tourist Trail' on ITV!

The TT will get a prime-time TV slot tomorrow (Tuesday) night.

The races will feature in the first programme of the ITV series 'John Sergeant On The Tourist Trail', from 8pm.

It shows presenter John Sergeant returning to his roots as a tour guide and getting a unique perspective of Britain by joining different tourist parties and experiencing Britain through their eyes.

The TT feature was shot during this year's races and tracks groups of German tourists making their annual pilgrimage to the Island.

During the programme, John Sergeant discovers why they love to return to the Isle of Man year after year, despite bringing all their own food and litres of German beer.

He also meets TT star Guy Martin and German rider Karsten Schmidt and learns how the Island copes with its influx of international visitors.
