It's a record entry for this year's TT Zero.

Eighteen bikes are set to line up for the zero carbon emissions race.

Amongst them will be current electric bike lap record holder and last year's winner Michael Rutter.

Jenny Tinmouth, Mark Miller and Dan Kneen are among the other riders taking part in the single lap race again.

17 time TT race winner John McGuinness will make his debut in the class.

He's riding the bike built by Japanese engine tuning firm Mugen.

The first team to complete a lap at 100mph will win a £10,000 prize.

But McGuinness says that's not why he's taking part [play clip]
