Isle of Man TT: Big teams budget compared to privateers

Privateers taking part in the Isle of Man TT races have been talking about life against the factory-backed teams.

A superbike for Tyco Suzuki would cost in the region of £70,000 compared to around £17,000 for a privateer.

John Ingram, from Wigan, is competing in the TT races for the second time.

He says: "You can't take anything away from the riders, but with such huge teams behind them they are going to take some catching on the road."
