    TT Isle of Man the Game - Michael Dunlop 1.jpg
    In the latest livery reveal for TT Isle of Man the Game, developers Bigben Interactive have released images showing the Yamaha YZF-R6 of none other than 16 time IoM race winner, Michael Dunlop.

    Carrying perhaps the most famous name in the history of the TT, Michael Dunlop is the brother of William Dunlop, son of the late Robert Dunlop and nephew of former World Champion and perhaps the greatest of them all, the late, great Joey Dunlop.

    Having achieved incredible success at the legendary race himself, Dunlop is the current lap record holder for a solo rider at the Snaefell Mountain Course, having become the only man to lap the famous road circuit under the 17 minute barrier, with his 16 minutes 53.929 second lap (at an average speed of 133.962 mph) having been achieved during the Senior TT event last season.

    The confirmation of Dunlop's YZF-R6 comes off the back of recent reveals of the Ian Lougher run Suter MMX 500 and the Kawasaki ZX-10 RR of Steve Mercer, rounding up a nice collection of some of the main players from recent runnings of the most famous road race in the world.

    As an added bonus, check out the below interview and gameplay footage from a recent Q&A with two time TT winner Ivan Lintin:



    TT Isle of Man - The Game will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC November 2017.

    I am kinda surprised that no modder has created a bike for AC yet, but then again there may be a very good reason for this?

    There is a high probability that I will purchase this game, mainly just to have the TT Course, I doubt that the physics will be any better than any GP series, not say its bad, its just not right.

    What I really dislike is the fact that in all other titles you can hit something at 150mph + and your bike remains as good as new and you are able to climb back on it seconds later and carry on as though nothing has just happened. Maybe this title will offer something a bit more in the lines of realism?

    I hope this is something that can really bring the experience of real bikes to the Sim world the way car sims have. I believe the physics are a little tougher because of the riders actions on the bike make such a big difference in how a bike moves. Seems like a tough dance to coordinate, but I'm glad there are teams out there with the brains, budgets and determination to do it. We are living in special times in the PC world. Just glad I have a few more years to see where this takes us.

    Thanks for the article @Paul Jeffrey :thumbsup: Aces again;)

    So if you love cars only the Indy 500 is worth watching?:roflmao: The Indy 500 is a great race but hardly too taxing going around in one big elongated circle.;):whistling: Boring.
    And technically the TT is not a race. It's a Time Trail. :thumbsup:But you are right, it's worth watching.

    Is there? Where did you read that? In real life there are a lot more participants and I see no difference between 2016 and 17. Maybe a new face here and there. Josh Brookes rode this year and not last year.
    To be honest I don't mind who they have lined up. The TT attracts many riders the average joe has never heard of. Obviously it would be nice to have the big names like McGuiness, Martin, the Dunlops, Hickman, Brookes etc etc but it wouldn't bother me either way. I'll be looking at purely learning and mastering the full 37 and three quarter mile course without hitting a tree or wall and trying to beat the record. My aim would be to hold the fastest lap record, maybe get into the 1:30's.
    And when I do it, if I hit a wall or a tree or slide off the bike I will start all over again because in real life those things would end your challenge, possibly for good.

    What I would like to be able to do though is ride on board when one of the TT stars are doing their TT practice.

    I was excited to hear about this game as it's got the TT course and having played TT superbikes, the jester game on PS2, loved learning the track and have high hopes for a step up in realism and physics.
    Alas I feel that this going to be the TT course with the MotoGP series 'arcade' gameplay.
    I'm hoping that they can make something comparable to GP Bikes.
    Prove me wrong please.
