Default HondaRacingEurope - TT Legends Documentary




Reproduced on YouTube by kind permission of Gaucho Productions, the 8-part TT Legends documentary follows a team of legendary motorcycle racers as they tackle some of the world's toughest races, including the Isle of Man TT.

The documentary goes 'behind the screens' as the team competes in the World Endurance Championship. The season kicks off with the famous Bol d'Or, a twenty-four hour race at the Magny Cours circuit in France. Then they're off to Doha, Germany and even Japan for the famous Suzuka 8-Hour before they return to France for the Le Mans 24-hour. Each race brings its own, distinct challenge for the team.

Originally shown on ITV4 in the UK the documentary will be available on YouTube weekly from 15th January 2014.

The series is also available on DVD from Duke Media.

I don't know how many of you have been following the NW200 this year, but it's worth pointing out that the young man in these videos, Simon Andrews, passed away this morning in a hospital after crashing during Saturday's NW200 race. As you can see from the videos here, he was a great guy, and an outstanding racer.


RIP Simon
