Rachel’s calendar


Our regular contributor Rachael Clegg has once again put together her Milestones calendar, with pictures shot on location in the Isle of Man, and with each picture comes a TT-based fact or anecdote.

The calendar was shot in November in the Isle of Man with photographer Ian Parry.

Rachael said: “It was by far the coldest shoot I’ve ever done – standing at the Bungalow with a fog horn with no clothes on in November was certainly a test of character, and sanity.”

The props all form part of Rachael’s story-telling of the TT’s history: “Everything is designed to tell a story – so every prop has relevance to the historical event we are recreating.”

Among the many tales in the calendar is that of Barregarrow, where, of all people, the former director of transport drove a dumper truck on to the TT course during a race.

To illustrate this, Rachael organised a life-size dumper. “It’s quite unbelievable when you start digging into the TT’s history. It never fails to amaze me!”
