The TT Races are a yearly event on my island. It's a series of motorbike races which are world famous, and we're extremely proud of them! 

On June 4th, I was able to go up to the Grandstand and meet the Japanese team's superbike racer, Yoshinari Matsushita, just before he was due to race.

I was there to help fundraise for the Tsunami appeal in Japan. We raised £100 to help those in need.

These photos feature myself and  Yoshinari Matsushita, a Japanese TT rider who passed away 27/05/13. It was a pleasure to have known him. 

While I was there I also met Charley Boorman from the TV programme Sydney to Tokyo By Any Means!)
