Organisers for this year’s Isle of Man TT festival have announced that it will be accompanied by a special four-part TV documentary series - ‘No Room For Error’ - ahead of the 2023 event.
The four specials will follow the progress of leading road racers John McGuinness, Peter Hickman, Michael Dunlop and Dean Harrison during the 2022 TT through footage captured in behind-the-scenes access.
According to the official communication from organisers, ‘No Room For Error’ reveals ‘the true story’ of the infamous event, which is as celebrated as it is notorious for its dangers.
“On-track rivalries and otherwise unseen battles of the heart are all played out through this access all areas production, with the riders constantly weighing up risk and reward against a backdrop of family life and, perhaps, ultimate loss.
“This is a story about freedom of choice, the strength of human spirit and the will to win.
It’s also an examination of what motivates those rare few; this elite band of brothers who risk everything for what the TT gives them in return.”
Other successful TT riders to participate in the documentary include Lee Johnson and James Hillier, all of whom ‘give a unique and unfiltered look into the life of a TT racer’, plus a selection of plucky privateers, among them rookie Rennie Scaysbrook and Milo Ward, who tackled the 37.7-mile Mountain Course for the first time in 2022.
No Room For Error comes will look to emulate some of the success enjoyed by F1’s groundbreaking Netflix sports’ documentary, ‘Drive to Survive’, which has been a huge hit, both for the championship and the broadcaster.
No Room For Error will launch exclusively on ITV4 and ITVX in the UK broadcast over four consecutive evenings from Monday 22nd May*.
Outside of the UK, it will be available free to air in all territories via the TT’s own streaming platform – TT+.
