Top riders turn out for launch of TT 2014

 

The build-up to TT 2014 has moved up a gear today, with the fans' party at the Villa Marina topping a successful launch day.

Many of the world's top road racers including John McGuinness and Michael Dunlop have been taking part in a whirlwind series of photo shoots and interviews throughout the day.

They have been the focus of motorsport journalists from around the worldwho have been gathering stories, quotes and pictures which organisers hope will give the TT international exposure. 

Fine weather helped ensure a successful karting track day at Jurby.

Gavin Hunt was declared the winner after a stewards enquiry!

The traditional fans' party is produced by North One TV and streamed on the official Isle of Man TT YouTube channel.

One man at the karting was Prodigy front-man Keith Flint who is bringing his Team Traction Control to the TT this year.

But he decided not to get involved in the racing himself.
