The trophies for the 2014 Classic TT presented by Benetts were unveiled today, each one paying tribute to the most iconic names associated with the Isle of Man TT.

The unique designs pay homage to four of the all-time greats who have collectively won 54 TTs – Joey Dunlop (26 wins), Mike Hailwood (14), Phil Read (8) and Geoff Duke (6).

These trophies will be awarded to the individual class winners within each racer, along with the fastest single-cylinder machines in each race.

“The Joey Dunlop Classic TT Trophy” will be awarded to the rider of the first 750cc machine to finish the Motorsport Merchandise Formula 1 race. This year’s race is also dedicated to the late Joey Dunlop.

“The Phil Read Classic TT Trophy” will go to the first 250cc machine in the Monday’s Okells 350cc Classic TT Race.

The other awards – the “Mike Hailwood Classic TT Trophy” and the “Geoff Duke Classic TT Trophy” will be awarded to the first single cylinder 500cc machine in the Bennetts 500cc Classic TT race and the first single cylinder 350cc machine in the Okells 350cc Race respectively.
