Graham Inchley from Andover plans to cover the equivalent distance of the TT course - 37 and three quarter miles within 8 hours to raise money for the Joey Dunlop Foundation.

Graham set off from the Grandstand at 10am to head along the TT course before turning off at the Quarterbridge to head south where he'll complete a lap of the Billown circuit. Both his Dad and Joey himself were winners there.

The challenge is then heading north to cover several more sections of the TT course before finishing at the Grandstand at 6pm.

He's no stranger to such challenges - in 2014 he set a a world record for pushing an occupied wheelchair,  completing a distance of 100.41 miles in 24 hours.
