Virtual TT to start later

Racers and gamers team up for console challenge

On what should have been the first race day at TT 2020, the action is taking place virtually instead.

The challenge sees eight real-life riders - Jamie Coward, Conor Cummins, Peter Hickman, Mark Miller, Rennie Scaysbrook, Davey Todd, Julien Toniutti and Raul Torras - each team up with an experienced gamer as they take on the latest edition of the TT game: 'TT Isle of Man - Ride On the Edge 2'.

The races form part of the Department for Enterprise's replacement offering for road racing fans, 'TT Lock-In', which also starts today and is on for eight days.

It'll feature some of the greatest solo and sidecar moments in TT history, with live interviews, and personal insights from the some of the races’ biggest stars.
