The smell of the bikes, the sound of the engines and the stars of road racing all come together for one amazing festival from 23rd - 25th August 2014 for the Isle of Man Classic TT presented by Bennetts. And we've got our hands on a promotional video that will whet your appetite. It may wet your trousers too, you've been warned.

In 2013, Olie Linsdell took the 500cc race win on a Giovanni Cabassi/Flitwick Paton while Chris Palmer took both the 350cc and Formula 2 honours. The 250cc win went to Jonathon Cutts on his Suzuki T20 and the current man-to-beat around the Mountain Course, Michael Dunlop, won the Formula 1 race on an '82 Suzuki XR69.

Among the big names racing in 2014 are John McGuinness, Guy Martin, Ryan Farquhar, Bruce Ansty, Michael Dunlop, James Hillier and Keith Amor. For a full line-up take a look at the following links:

Unfortunately one of the biggest stars, Cameron Donald, won't be racing this year having broken both wrists in a training accident recently. 

This year the eighties-themed Classic TT will pay tribute to the twenty-six time TT winner Joey Dunlop including a Parade Lap on Saturday 23rd August and will feature the likes of three-times TT winner Carl Fogarty.
