TT Legends Documentary is Coming to Youtube on 15th January

[caption id="attachment_15103" align="aligncenter" width="640"]1-TT_Legends_SimonAndrews_IOM_TT TT Legends Simon Andrews IOMTT[/caption] The acclaimed TT Legends documentary is to be shown on YouTube for the first time. Originally broadcast on ITV4 in the UK and to be shown on Fox Australia, the documentary follows a team of legendary motorcycle racers as they tackle some of the world's toughest races, including the Isle of Man TT. The first episode will be available on the HondaProRacing YouTube channel from 15th January 2014. A teaser is available now. Gaucho Productions was granted exclusive access to the Honda TT Legends team throughout an epic season.  From Japan to Germany and from Le Mans to the Isle of Man, the documentary follows these ordinary men doing extraordinary things. John McGuinness, nicknamed the 'The Morecambe Missile', is an ex-bricklayer and mussel picker from the north of England who has won the legendary Isle of Man TT twenty times.  He is joined in the TT Legends team by Cameron Donald and Simon Andrews. Donald is Australia's fastest plumber and a two-time winner of the Isle of man TT. Andrews is a fearless young gun who was the fastest newcomer at the TT in 2011. Together they are the TT Legends. The documentary goes 'behind the screens' as the team competes in the World Endurance Championship. The season kicks off with the famous Bol d'Or, a twenty-four hour race at the Magny Cours circuit in France. Then they're off to Doha, Germany and even Japan for the famous Suzuka 8-Hour before they return to France for the Le Mans 24-hour. Each race brings its own, distinct challenge for the team. In Suzuka, for example, we'll join McGuinness in an ice bath, a welcome antidote to the searing heat. These circuit races are accompanied by legendary road races in Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. McGuinness is the man to beat on the roads with Donald and Andrews among his toughest rivals. Gaucho Productions were there to witness the contrast, as these friends and teammates now push each other to the limit and beyond. 

Away from the races, the series will show the team as they relax away from the pressures of racing, learning what makes them tick and why these men are willing to risk everything to race on bumpy public roads at over 200mph. And you'll meet the families and friends who must cope with the stress of watching them race. Over eight, half-hour episodes, witness all the tears, tantrums and triumphs as this fascinating team enjoys an epic season.

Speaking about the series, Gaucho Production's Executive Producer, Alistair Weaver, said: "We had a terrific response to the TT Legends series when it debuted on ITV4, where it attracted an exceptionally broad audience. It's an extraordinary tale of human will and endeavour played out at 200mph and we're delighted to be bringing it to a YouTube audience for the first time."

Robert Watherston, Head of Motorsport, Honda Motor Europe said: "Gaucho's crew were given unprecedented access to the Honda TT Legends team and the result is an intimate and fascinating portrait of just what it takes to compete in these incredibly challenging racing disciplines. We're thrilled to be able to offer the series to a global audience via the HondaProRacing YouTube channel."

The eight episodes will be uploaded weekly onto the HondaProRacing YouTube channel from 15th January.  A teaser for the series is available now.
