Classic and current BMW bikes will be on display in the TT grandstand paddock this weekend.


The exhibition by the German manufacturer focuses on the BMW Kompressor that Georg 'Schorsch' Meier piloted to victory in the Senior TT 75 years ago. Also featured will be the 1000RR that Michael Dunlop rode to victory in three races at this year's TT, alongside models from the pre- and post-war era.


Self-styled Minister for Fun, David Cretney MHK said: 'BMW has made a real impact at the TT races this year and we are delighted to be working with them to celebrate the company's success at this year's Classic TT event. It is great to see the return of such an iconic brand to the Isle of Man and fans are in for a real treat with their display of historic and modern machines.'


The machines will be on display from Saturday August 23 to Tuesday August 26.
