An eight-part documentary series, following the Honda TT Legends throughout the 2012 racing season, is set to hit primetime TV in the UK, starting next Monday (4 Feb) on ITV4 at 8.30pm.

Produced by Gaucho Productions, the series entitled ‘TT Legends’ goes behind-the-screens with exclusive access to the Honda TT Legends team as they take on some of the world’s toughest motorcycle races. It follows star riders, including John McGuinness, Simon Andrews and Cameron Donald as they compete in the Endurance World Championship, at events such as the Le Mans 24-hour and the Suzuka 8-hour and at selected road racing events, including the legendary Isle of Man TT and the super-fast North West 200 in Northern Ireland.

The documentary series showcases the high-octane, adrenaline-fuelled nature of motorcycle sport at its highest level but yet also focuses on the human element in a compelling and unique way. Away from the track, we see what makes these seemingly fearless riders tick and what motivates the team to keep pushing for glory, in the face of adversity.

Over eight, half-hour episodes, witness all the tears, tantrums and triumphs as this fascinating team enjoys an epic season aboard the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade.
