“As a resident of the Isle of Man I'm obviously aware of the importance of the TT Races.” said Cal. “I've been round the course many times but I've never had the chance to lap on a closed road. I'm really looking forward to experiencing the mountain course close up.”

Paul Phillips, the TT and Motorsport Manager for the Isle of Man Government added, “Cal approached us when he heard that we were scheduling a parade lap for Mick Doohan and asked if we could accommodate him at the same time. We were delighted to help as he is one of the world's leading racers and his endorsement will boost the profile of the event in the Mountain Course's centenary year.”
