Dunlop and Hutchinson set to reveal 2020 plans at TT launch show

Michael Dunlop and Ian Hutchinson are set to reveal their 2020 plans at the official Isle of Man TT launch in March. 

Whilst several riders and teams have confirmed their plans for the roads, both Dunlop and Hutchinson have been out of the spotlight. However, both riders are due to appear at the official launch event on March 27. 

This year’s show takes place at the Mountain View Innovation Centre. This venue, located on the outskirts of Ramsey, has recently been renovated and refurbished. 

The show will be hosted by two-time TT racer winner Steve Plater and TV presenter Chris Pritchard. The pair will be speaking with a number of TT racers on stage, including last year’s big winners Peter Hickman and Dean Harrison. Hickman won in the Superbike, Supertock and Supersport classes, whilst Harrison won his first-ever Senior TT.

John McGuinness will appear on stage following his move to Bournemouth Kawasaki, whilst OMG Racing’s James Hillier and David Johnson will talking about their team’s maiden campaign. 

Other riders that have been confirmed include local rider Conor Cummins, Honda Racing UK’s Glenn Irwin and Davey Todd, Lee Johnston and veteran Michael Rutter. Ben and Tom Birchall will also be in attendance as they look to continue their domination of the sidecar class.

The 2020 launch event will be livestreamed on the official Isle of Man TT website. Tickets are on sale now, with ‘Rider’s Green Room’ tickets giving fans the opportunity to meet their heroes. Doors will open at 7pm with a start time of 8pm.
