TT fans will get the chance to meet some of the greatest names in Motorcycling history at the ‘Classic TT Heroes Dinner’ on Sunday 25th August during this year’s inaugural Classic TT Races event.
The evening will take place in the prestigious new TT ‘VIP Club’ facility, situated at the heart of the race paddock. It will be ‘sandwiched’ between the two race days for what is already building up to be the World’s leading Classic motorcycle race meeting.
With a plethora of World Champions, national champions and a stunning line up of TT riders past and present with over a hundred race victories and numerous podiums to their credit, it promises to be an unforgettable and exclusive evening.
The ‘Who’s Who’ of motorcycle racing includes modern TT stars John McGuinness, Conor Cummins, Ian Lougher, Bruce Anstey, Dave Molyneux, Cameron Donald, James Hillier, Michael and William Dunlop and Gary Johnson – all of whom raced at this year’s TT.
Joining them will be some of the most successful Mountain Course competitors of yesteryear including Mick Grant, Phil McCallen, Brian Reid, Ryan Farquhar and Phil Read while Italian legend Giacomo Agostini, fresh from his parade lap with John McGuinness recreating the unforgettable ’67 Senior TT duel with Mike Hailwood, will also be at the event.
Other World champions due to appear include four time GP title winner Kork Ballington: American Freddie Spencer, the double champion of 1985 and youngest ever winner of the premier title in 1983: Venezuelan Carlos Lavardo, the double 250cc title winner: Steve Baker, the first American to win a road racing world championship and Australian Kel Carruthers, a double Lightweight TT Race winner, one win coming during his victorious 1969 World Championship winning year.
Former British and World Superbike champion Neil Hodgson will be compering the evening and interviewing each of the stars during the evening. Every table will be hosted by one of the legendary names so lucky attendees will also get the chance to ask their own questions and have memorabilia autographed personally. The riders will be switching tables after each of the three courses so attendees will have their own personal experience and interview with many of the greatest names in racing history.
