A supermarket night worker who has spent a lifetime taking photos around the TT course in his free time has today met his hero face to face.
Graham Nutt, who works on the night shift at Tesco in Douglas, captured John McGuinness at Ballaugh Bridge, on the way to winning his 14th TT last year.
A large print of the stunning shot is being auctioned at the store in aid of the Rob Vine Fund, which provides paramedic equipment for the TT.
McGuinness popped in to meet Graham and sign the huge photo this morning.
Graham says motorsport photography requires a special technique (play audio file):
John McGuinness arrived at Tesco on a Honda scooter, before mingling with shoppers and signing autographs.
He told Manx Radio Graham's picture is one of the most impressive photos of him riding he has ever seen.
