The team has two members that are returning to the Island, Wade and Dave. The rest are newcomers, anxious to enjoy the thrill of the Island for the first time.

Dave Crussell said: “I came to the IoM for the first time last year and rode my P&M Kawasaki Z1. I absolutely fell in love with the Island; there is nothing like it. I am really happy to come back this year with some buddies to share the fun. This should be a fantastic event. And we have to say a big thank you to the IoM Government for helping to sponsor the shipment of our bikes across the Atlantic.”
