Redmond to ride parade lap of the Isle of Man TT course.

Redmond to ride parade lap of the Isle of Man TT course.

SPLITLATH Redmond co-owner Derek Redmond will make his Isle of Man TT Fuelled by Monster Energy debut tomorrow – but he certainly won’t be breaking any speed records. 

Redmond will take part in a parade lap around the famous Mountain course at 4pm on Saturday afternoon as part of the day’s action. 

He will take to the famous course on board one of the team’s iconic Aprilia RSV4 machines, and admits he is raring to go – although he isn’t expecting to trouble the top guys.

“I’m really excited about getting out there and doing a parade lap around here,” he said. “I’ve been to the Isle of Man a few times before for work and other engagements but this is my first visit here for the TT.

“When I was invited to do a parade lap I jumped at the opportunity. This place is just incredible, and to be given the opportunity to actually ride the course on one of our superbikes is a chance in a lifetime.

“But I don’t think John McGuinness or any of the other top guys have anything to be worried about – the record here is 131.5 and I’m aiming to be a nice 31.5. That way I can always say McGuinness was only one digit quicker than me!”

Redmond is due to set-off on his parade lap at 4pm on Saturday, June 2.
