Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Honda #uk returns to the #isleofman TT as both the official motorcycle and car partner to the world-famous motorcycle road race. In doing so, it will provide a combination of #cbr1000rrfirebladesps and #civictypers to the race organisers who monitor the circuit throughout qualifying and race-week, which gets underway May 25 2019. The announcement honours the rich history shared between #honda and the #isleofman TT, which stretches back sixty years.

For the third straight year the travelling marshals will be primed for immediate response to any incidents on track with the help of eight, tri-coloured #cbr1000rrfirebladesps. For 2019 the iconic #supersport flagship receives a revised electronics package that benefits from HRC MotoGP’s input, sharpening on-track performance, making it the perfect foil for the marshals.

An eight-strong fleet of liveried, #honda #civictypers will be available for race organisers for official car duties, aiding #racecontrol in the upkeep of all 37.73 miles. Boasting lap records at five major European circuits, including the Nürburgring, the multi-award winning hot hatchback will be welcomed back by the race organisers this year.

“It will be great to see the Fireblade as a marshal bike in this legendary setting once again. The #isleofman TT has had a huge hand in shaping #hondamotorcycles, so we’re proud and delighted to be contributing as an official partner, six decades on from Honda’s debut at the TT”, commented #neilfletcher, Head of Motorcycles for #honda #uk.

Phil Webb, Head of Car for #honda #uk commented: “I’m looking forward to seeing the Civic Type R and Fireblade sharing official duties for the second year in a row. These cutting edge models demonstrate the breath of #honda, and we are delighted to support the TT in such a capacity once again”.

The 2019 #isleofman TT takes place from the 25th May to 7th June, it will be broadcast on ITV4 in the #uk and available through international broadcasters in places as far as the #usa and #australia.
