Popular TT competitor visits MNH exhibition 18 June 2007

Wade Boyd at MNH's TT Centenary exhibitionCalifornian TT competitor Wade Boyd found time before returning home after this year’s racing to visit the Manx Museum’s TT Centenary exhibition, ‘Staying the Course’.

The colourful and popular rider, who has been a TT regular for a number of years, dropped by to find out what has been drawing so many fans to the exhibition this summer.

Curator of Social History at Manx National Heritage, Matthew Richardson, commented:

“It was great to see Wade at the Museum and to get a photo or two of him – he actually contributed some of the items which are in the exhibition, so we also had the opportunity to say thanks for his support and assistance.”

Wade Boyd on the ‘TT Superbikes’ PlayStation gameWade, who hails from San Francisco and who has raced both solos and sidecars in his career, also tried his hand at the ‘TT Superbikes’ PlayStation game, as a group of awe struck schoolboys stepped aside to make way for a real TT rider.

The exhibition, which is turning out to be one of the most popular ever staged by MNH, is open from 10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday until September. Admission is free.
