Scott Redding

Four of Britain's MotoGP stars will take part in a parade lap of the Isle of Man TT course ahead of next month's senior race, organisers have said.

Ramsey resident Cal Crutchlow, Bradley Smith, Michael Laverty and Scott Redding will all take part.

Monster Energy Yamaha Tech 3 rider Smith is currently the highest-ranked British rider, sitting ninth in the overall MotoGP standings.

"It is a brilliant opportunity," Redding said.

"The TT guys are unique in motorcycle racing and I have huge respect and admiration for what they do.

"The chance to ride round the TT course on closed roads is a brilliant opportunity for me to experience something different and I'm really looking forward to getting out to the island to meet the TT fans."
