Episode notes

Peter Hickman joins Chris Pritchard and Steve Plater for the very first episode of The TT Podcast.

The serial record-breaker talks through the epic race-long battle with Dean Harrison in 2018, where Peter raised the bar to new heights with an incredible lap at an average speed of 135 miles per hour.

He tells of his early life, his families disapproval of his racing, and what makes him so fast around the TT Mountain Course. He also looks ahead to what’s in store for 2022 with his new FHO Racing team.
