TT winner Michael Rutter may have enjoyed success on the Mountain Course during the 2012 races, but he also proved to be a lucky charm for two staff members at Royal London 360°.
The star, who won the TT Zero Race and finished third in the new ‘Super Twin’ category at this year’s event, visited Royal London House recently to do a ‘meet and greet’ and draw the results of a competition for two employees to win a trip round the TT course in one of the official ‘Roads Closed’ cars.
Michael picked Max Neale and Jessica Swindells, with both enjoying a fast lap of the 37.73 mile course prior to the start of the Royal London 360° Superstock TT race. The offshore life company has sponsored the Royal London 360° Superstock TT race since 2002, making it the event’s longest existing sponsor.
Max commented: “The competition questions were pretty tough so to find myself in the draw, let alone win, was a dream come true. Thanks to Michael for picking me as one of the winners – the fast lap on closed roads was amazing and I am still buzzing now!”
