2012 Isle of Man TT Legends Promotion

For the first time in 2012, two of the Isle of Man TT’s most famed riders were on the track participating in a promotional event for this year’s races – 17-time TT winner John McGuinness, and 14-time TT winner Dave Molyneux.

The two were being filmed and photographed on a closed section of the course between Ramsey Hairpin and the Bungalow. During the event, McGuinness piloted his Honda TT Legends CBR1000RR Fireblade, and “Moly” his Kawasaki-powered sidecar outfit by passenger Patrick Farrance.

Regardless of the sloppy weather, the pair made multiple runs on the closed section of the course, including one with the sidecar and motorcycle side-by-side.

Attached above is some video highlights of the event.
