John McGuinness on Honda Racing TV

For anyone in the world of media, YouTube is part of the formula for success. Honda Racing understands this, and has recently released a YoutTube series titled Honda Racing TV.

The latest episode attached above features one of our favorite motorcycle racers, John McGuinness, not only talking about the 2016 Isle of Man TT, but also the 100th running of the Indy 500 – America’s oldest race – and Honda’s Norbert Michelisz in the 2016 World Touring Car Championship.

As for McGuinness, he has become an icon in the world of international motorcycle road racing. The 37-year-old “Morecambe Missile” has 23 TT wins – the most of anyone currently competing, and three shy of the record held by the late Joey Dunlop.

The next closest are Dave Molyneux, a side car racer with 17 TT wins, and Mike Hailwood and Ian Hutchinson, who are tied with 14.

McGuinness earned his first TT win at the age of 24 (1996) in the 250cc class, and from 2006 on nobody could slow him. Riding Honda machinery, McGuinness won three TTs that 2006 season, and from there kept the CBR600RR and CBR1000RR motorcycles on top of the podium.

During the 2016 IOM TT, McGuinness finished third in both the RST Superbike TT and Senior TT, which were both won by BMW S1000RR pilot Michael Dunlop.

With so much Honda experience under his leathers, Honda Racing TV decided to have him host the fourth episode. McGuinness brings a unique voice to not only his experience at the TT, but also the Indy 500 and the WTCC.
