Full House for TT Launch

717

Every seat in the house was taken for the launch of TT 2024 at the Innovation Centre; Ramsey. Many of the star names were there for the event. A special presentation to mark the retirement of the most successful sidecar passenger of all time; Tom Birchall; was made by his brother Ben.

Very little new came out of the interviews with the riders; apart from Michael Dunlop not being a fan of the new Supersport regulations. The star newcomers for this year; World Sidecar Champions Todd Ellis and Emmanuelle Clement were there and they have no illusions about what the challenge of the Mountain Course entails. If it proves more daunting than anticipated they will jump on the boat (assuming it sails). Hats off to them for that; it takes courage to say that it is not for you. The new passengers for two great drivers were introduced to the fans; they are Kevin Rousseau (Ben Birchall) and 20 years old Jake Roberts (Dave Molyneux); good luck to them.
