Virtual TT coming to ITV4

17 June 2020

The ‘Virtual TT in association with Motul’ is coming to ITV4 in an hour-long special, due to air on Wednesday 17 June from 7pm.

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

The line-up of professional riders features some of the biggest names in the TT, including Manx racer, Conor Cummins; UK riders Jamie Coward, Davey Todd, five time TT Race winner and current actual lap record holder Peter Hickman; Australia’s Rennie Scaysbrook; France’s Julian Toniutti; Spain’s Raul Torras Martinez; and Californian, Mark Miller.

On joining the virtual competition, racer Davey Todd, said:

‘Of course as a racer you naturally get super competitive even when playing the game; I always want to win. Since the second game came out, I’ve played it a lot to keep the course as fresh as possible in my mind, and then even when this year’s TT was cancelled, joining the Virtual TT was the only way to get my TT fix and do a bit of competitive racing against my friends and TT rivals!’

Each of the TT stars are teamed up with an experienced gamer from around the world; from Russia, Alex Petrov; from the USA, Stefy Bau and from the UK, Darrel Grundy, Sara Leghari and Kenny Lam. Also joining the line-up are three Isle of Man-based gaming enthusiasts, Sam Tipper and Louis Porter, as well as Aaron Hislop, son of racing legend Steve Hislop.
