Guy Martin's x’rays, John McGuinness’ leathers, several tubs of Swarfega, umpteen gallons of diesel, an Aljazeera journalist and an assistant with a bladder problem. These were the ingredients of Milestones TT calendar, created by artist and needs-must model Rachael Clegg, photographer Peter Greste and invaluable assistant Shaz Nicol.
Clegg - daughter and granddaughter of TT racers Noel and Tom Clegg - wanted to produce a TT calendar series that paid visual homage to the TT’s 106-year history, but with an interesting visual spin on the tales. She researched dozens of quirky TT stories, which, in turn inspired the shots and then raced around the course, not on a motorbike, but naked, at various locations on the circuit - and all at 4am in the morning.
Since its debut last year, Milestones calendar has become something of a cult calendar. Milestones 2013 sold out in no-time and 2014’s not far off. After all, who needs Pirelli professionals when you’ve got a budget blonde from Rochdale, the most exciting road racing circuit in the world and and a seam of historical TT anecdotes to explore.
Enter this site to explore more about what is fast becoming motorsport’s cult arty calendar.
