Honda will take centre stage at next month’s Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard, as the Japanese manufacturer celebrates 60 years of TT triumphs.
A selection of models will tell the tale of Honda’s two-wheeled racing heritage, from its premier TT entry in 1959, to the present day MotoGP machines – namely the RC213V on which Marc Marquez won the World Championship last year.
Legendary Honda champions will pilot these priceless motorcycles up the hill, including 1999 500cc World Champion Mick Doohan and two-time MotoGP World Champion Casey Stoner, who rode a Repsol Honda to victory in 2011.
The 2019 Festival of Speed will feature the theme of ‘Speed Kings – Motorsport’s Record Breakers’, and as such will feature a host of extraordinary bikes, from 1920s Brooklands challengers, to more recent record breakers. Fittingly, the most successful rider in Grand Prix history, Giacomo Agostini, will once again ride an MV Agusta up the hill.
