Isle of Man T.T. winners John McGuinness, Ian Lougher and Richard "Milky" Quayle will head to Japan next month to help efforts in the Far East for a T.T. style road race.
A 30 kilometre course on Miyakejima island off the coast from Tokyo has been identified as a possible location.
The three racers will ride the circuit, meet officials and be interviewed by the media.
"Milky" Quayle says the trip coincides with a bike week, and the aim is to put pressure on the local authorities to give the project the green light:-
