A word on the guest star of the event – Ian Hutchinson

Gracing this year’s Springfields Motorbike Show is Ian Hutchinson. This biker from West Yorkshire seeks his thrills in the infamous races of Isle of Man TT. During the grand opening of the Isle of Man TT race, Ian won the podium position in the category of Supersport 600 race. This victory comes as the second consecutive win. All the credit goes to Ian’s impeccable form from the start to finish of the race. Ian has 14 junior TT victories to his credit. Such a high number of wins puts him in the same league as Mike Hailwood.

Last year, as a recognition, Ian was awarded the Torrens Trophy, a coveted felicitation from the Royal Automobile Club. Ian was presented one of the 9 trophies in the history of the club. The award comes as recognition of Ian’s persistence in overcoming all hurdles to score multiple TT victories, his grit, and outstanding courage.
