10 YEARS ON: CAM DONALD TALKS RIDING A MOTOGP BIKE AROUND THE TT COURSE

Back to news

Ten years ago Cameron Donald did something pretty special - he took a legitimate four-stroke MotoGP machine around the Isle of Man TT course as part of Suzuki's celebrations marking 50 years of Grand Prix racing. The TT winner climbed down off the 2010 Senior TT podium, jumped aboard Loris Capirossi's GSVR, and set off on a parade lap, a parade lap calculated at 122mph!

In the latest episode of The Inside Line podcast, Chris Moss talks to the affable Aussie who recalls that day with infectious enthusiasm, recounting how the opportunity came about, and just what the GSVR was like to ride around the most famous and most daunting road racing course in the world.

Listen to the episode on Spotify or Apple Podcasts, and catch up on previous episodes, which include interviews with Sylvain Guintoli, Danny Webb, and John Reynolds, plus looks at the iconic Hayabusa and stalwart SV650.
