This year’s Isle of Man Classic TT will celebrate the career of the late Steve Hislop, one of the greatest British motorcycle racers of all time.
Entitled ‘Back to the Future: The Hizzy Years’ the celebration takes place 30 years after Steve set the first ever 120mph lap around the Mountain Course.
The parade lap will see the career of the enigmatic Scottish rider recognised with many of his most memorable racing machines ridden by former team-mates, rivals and friends.
Four-time World Superbike champion and TT winner Carl Fogarty, who was both a team-mate and rival to Hislop, will head the line-up.
The hotly-contested 1992 Senior TT race, which saw the lead change hands multiple times before Hislop prevailed by 4.4sec, is widely acknowledged to be the greatest TT race of all time.
