2014 Bike Nation Lightweight TT

The new online store Bike Nation, which was launched last week, is to become the new title sponsor of the Lightweight TT Race, which will be called the Bike Nation Lightweight TT.

The Lightweight Race for Supertwin machines first took place in 2012 and has quickly become an established part of the TT schedule. James Hillier won the 2013 race setting a new lap record of 119.130mph.

This year’s race takes place on Friday 6th June, ahead of the PokerStars Senior TT. Almost 90 entries were received for the race, the highest number since the race’s inception. The start list will be announced on Friday, April 4.

As part of the launch program, Bike Nation will offer one customer a VIP trip for two to the Isle of Man TT Races. The trip will include travel and accommodation, as well as two tickets to the TT’s VIP Club, the Isle of Man’s prestigious hospitality that gives ticket holders access all areas to the world’s leading road race.

Bike Nation has been launched in conjunction with TT sponsor Bennetts, whose brands have sponsored the Lightweight race since 2012. Bike Nation offers one of the UK’s widest selections of quality motorcycle clothing and accessories, offering over 100,000 lines from 140+ brands. It also uniquely offers original equipment parts and new motorcycles from top manufacturers and insurance cover on helmets and leathers.

The site completes the company’s overall offering to British motorcyclists, with its award-winning Bike Social website and Free Classifieds services complementing the 84-year-old company’s traditional insurance offerings.
