TT fans have a chance to win a limited edition Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP worth £15,000 in a competition.
The prize is the limited-edition road version of the machine which Honda Racing team stars John McGuinness and Conor Cummins will be riding in the Superbike and Senior races at this year’s Isle of Man TT, and one of only 160 available in the UK.
The CBR Fireblade has built a loyal army of fans around the world over two decades of production – and in response to demand Honda has built this track-focused, yet fully road legal, version of the bike which has become synonymous with success in the World Super Bike Championship and the Isle of Man TT.
The Fireblade SP features Ohlins suspension, Brembo monobloc brakes and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP trackday tyres. Advancements on this 2014 Fireblade include an improved riding position, higher screen, enhanced in frame flex dynamics beneath the swingarm pivot, and a modified cylinder head, giving more revs, power, and torque.
The competition is being held to celebrate Manx Telecom’s personal sponsorship of Honda Racing rider Conor Cummins in 2014, the third year in succession that the company has sponsored the ‘Ramsey Rocket’.
David Smith, Manx Telecom marketing director, said: ‘Conor is a great ambassador for us and the TT, and we’re very proud to support him again.
‘This year we also wanted to give fans a chance to win an extra special prize, and they don’t come much better than this limited edition Honda Fireblade SP which we’re very fortunate to have sourced through Isle of Man Honda.
‘It’s a dream bike for any TT fan, and visitors or residents just have to use the Manx Telecom mobile network to be in with a chance of winning. Making a call, sending a text, or using data on our network any time from May 6 to June 5, automatically enters the user into the prize draw.’
To celebrate the launch of Manx Telecom’s TT 2014 campaign, Conor Cummins will be meeting fans at Manx Telecom’s store in Strand Street, Douglas, on Saturday, May 10, from 10am to noon.
In addition to the Honda Fireblade SP competition, those using the Manx Telecom mobile network during this year’s TT will also have a chance to win one of 10 Sony Xperia Z1 compact smartphones (each one worth £449).
