Road to 2023_ Isle of Man TT Launch Show_15th April


With less than 100 days to go and entries now confirmed the countdown to the 2023 Isle of Man TT Races has officially begun. As the anticipation continues to build, this year’s official preview show ‘Road to 2023’ will deliver you all the latest news and insights direct from the TT’s biggest stars.

Road to 2023 will take place at the Mountain View Innovation Centre, on Saturday 15th April and bringing you up to speed on the latest action throughout the show will be hosts of The TT Podcast, Chris Pritchard and Steve Plater, alongside fellow co-host for the evening Grace Webb.

It’s one of the biggest stories of the year so far. Honda Racing UK confirmed earlier this year that 23-time TT winner, John McGuinness MBE will be joined in their team by the 24-year old Manxman, Nathan Harrison. During the show, we'll be hearing from the new Honda pairing to find out what it means to Harrison to be competing alongside his childhood hero and following a momentous year for McGuinness, what are his expectations coming into 2023.

The star studded line-up continues as you can expect TT legends Michael Dunlop and Peter Hickman to be going head to head. They’ve dominated the podium in recent years and having claimed victory in 16 out of the last 19 TT races there doesn’t seem to be any sign of stopping their rostrum reign and with only Dean Harrison and Lee Johnston stepping in to stop their clean sweep so far, the battle for 2023 is well truly on.

Padgett’s Racing Team is a household name amongst the TT Paddock with a history that spans more than six decades and this year the team will celebrate their 65th Anniversary. To mark this momentous milestone, on the show we’ll be joined by Padgett’s Racing Team owner Clive Padgett as well as local hero Conor Cummins and the TT’s rising star Davey Todd.

There’s more commemorative moments to come in the show as 2023 marks 100 years since the first sidecar race took place on the TT Mountain Course. Now a century on and with sidecar lap speeds nearing 120mph, we’ll be asking sidecar champions Tom and Ben Birchall if they think they’ll finally break that barrier. Also, joining the Birchall brothers will be the up-and-coming Crowe brothers.
