Britain’s four current MotoGP stars are set to experience the world’s finest road race and take part in a parade lap at the 2014 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy.
The four, Bradley Smith, Michael Laverty, Scott Redding and Isle of Man resident Cal Crutchlow, will all appear in the parade lap ahead of this year’s 2014 PokerStars Senior TT on Friday 6th June.
Monster Energy Yamaha Tech 3 rider Bradley Smith has enjoyed the best start of the four in this year’s Championship. He followed up his front row grid start in Qatar with a top five finish at the Grand Prix of the Americas, eighth in Jerez and tenth in Le Mans.
Ducati rider Cal Crutchlow confounded the sceptics with a sixth placed finish in the opening round although he crashed out in Austin when running fourth. He missed the Argentina GP with injury but has since returned and finished 11th in Le Mans
Go&Fun Honda Gresini’s Scott Redding holds the distinction of being the youngest rider ever to win a GP race when he won the 125cc British Grand Prix at Donington in 2008 and finished a stunning seventh in his first MotoGP race. He has also had top fifteen finishes in Argentina, Jerez and Le Mans.
2007 British Supersport champion Michael Laverty, who is riding for PBM Aprilia in the premier class this year, completes the line up. He made his MotoGP debut last year with a best placed finish of thirteenth in Spain and has finished sixteenth in four out of the five rounds this season.
Bennetts/Bike Nation Ambassador Scott Redding commented:
“The TT guys are unique in motorcycle racing. I have huge respect and admiration for what they do. The chance to ride round the TT course on a closed road is a brilliant opportunity for me to experience something different and I’m really looking forward to getting out to the Island to meet the TT fans, see the racing first hand and get a lap in as well.”
