Motorcycle News (UK) - - TT 2017 PREVIEW - Sports Ed­i­tor

In just three days time Ian Hutchin­son, Michael Dunlop, Guy Martin and the rest will set off down the Bray Hill, kick­ing off what is shap­ing up to be an epic 2017 TT. Last year saw Hutchin­son and Dunlop share the spoils, win­ning five races be­tween them and they are head­ing into this year’s show­down as fierce ri­vals – both des­per­ate to stamp their author­ity on the event.

Fans’ favourite Guy Martin is back, on­board the new Honda Rac­ing Fire­blade, but for the first time in 22 years, Mcguin­ness won’t be rac­ing due to in­juries sus­tained at the North West 200.

We’ve spo­ken with all the other con­tenders from the laid-back Bruce An­stey through to Lee John­ston, Conor Cum­mins and James Hil­lier to name but a few.

On the tech­ni­cal side, we’ve gone un­der the skin of the world’s best road rac­ing ma­chines with in­sight from the men that have pre­pared the Suzuki, BMW, Honda and Kawasaki. Plus, we ex­am­ine the chances of the stun­ning Nor­ton V4RRSG6 that will be cam­paigned by Josh Brookes and Dave John­son.

And for those of you lucky enough to be head­ing to the TT, we’ve pulled to­gether details of the very best places to watch and in­valu­able tips on how to get the best out of your stay.
