Virtual TT coming to ITV4

One-hour special to be shown

This year's TT with a difference is coming to television screens this evening.

An hour-long special on the 'Virtual TT' is on ITV4, starting at 7pm.

The programme - which will feature race highlights from all eight riders and gamers who took part - will be hosted by Chris Pritchard with commentator Dave Moore.

The lineup of professional riders featured the likes of the Ramsey Rocket, Conor Cummins; five-time TT winner and current absolute lap record holder Peter Hickman; and fellow UK riders Jamie Coward and Davey Todd.

Each of the TT stars teamed up with an experienced gamer from around the world, including three Island-based ones: Sam Tipper, Louis Porter, and Aaron Hislop, son of road racing legend Steve Hislop.
