John McGuinness is simply the God of TT racing. A complete legend of the sport who holds a mind-blowing record of an amazing 23 wins round the Isle of Man track.

James Whitham, an expert on motorbike racing, conducts the interviews with John along with the audience Q and A. James covers everything in the interview in a way that brings out the best in John and the banter is brilliant between the two.

Hear the fascinating tales of this special man, as he exclusively opens up to James about his momentous achievements at the top level of motorbike racing.

We also take you round a lap of the TT course on our big screens with commentary by John himself and an added bonus is that John always brings along a couple of his famous bikes for his fans to see.

An Audience with Peter Hickman and James Whitham

Already a five-time winner at the TT, many good judges see him as the next TT superstar. The current lap record holder at the TT with an unbelievable 135mph lap, 'Hicky' also regularly races at the front end of the BSB championship. A mix of banter and a commentary on his 135mph lap on our big screens is a joy to behold. A great evening is guaranteed. Hicky is the last out of the door too and usually everyone gets the chance to meet the man himself.

An Audience with Shane 'Shakey' Byrnes

Sporting Life Stories are proud to present a series of very special evenings with six-time British Superbike Champion Shane ’Shakey’ Byrne.

The most successful domestic British motorcycle racer of all-time, and special guest interviewer Matt Roberts will discuss the highs and lows of Shakey's incredible career, the crash that has threatened to end it and his plans for the future.

From growing up on a council estate in Sittingbourne, working night shifts on the London Underground to fund his early career, to hitting the heights of World Superbike glory and two seasons spent racing alongside and partying with the likes of Valentino Rossi in MotoGP, Shakey has been there and seen it all.

Byrne will also lift the lid on the darker side of the sport: the injuries, the underhand dealings and the backhanders that go on from club racing right the way to the very top.
