First promo video for TT 2019 released

Excitement building eight months ahead of event

The first TT 2019 promo video has been released on social media.

The footage features several of the top names in road racing, as well as some less well-known outfits, around the paddock, at the Grandstand, on the start line and gazing down Bray Hill.

It's all in ultra slow motion and high definition, showing the riders' facial expressions as they go through the final throes of meticulous preparation for the Mountain Course.

After a record-breaking TT 2018, fans' excitement is already growing eight months ahead of next year's event.
