ISLE OF MAN – Britain’s four MotoGP stars are set to take part in a parade lap at the 2014 Isle of Man TT races.

Bradley Smith, Michael Laverty, Scott Redding and Isle of Man resident Cal Crutchlow will appear in the parade lap ahead of this year’s 2014 PokerStars Senior TT on June 6.

Smith has enjoyed the best start of the four in this year’s championship. He followed up his front-row grid start in Qatar with a top-five finish at the Grand Prix of the Americas, eighth in Jerez and tenth in Le Mans.

Ducati rider Cal Crutchlow posted a sixth-place finish in the opening round, although he crashed out in Austin when running fourth. He missed the Argentina GP with injury but has since returned and finished 11th in Le Mans.

Redding holds the distinction of being the youngest rider ever to win a GP race when he won the 125cc British Grand Prix at Donington in 2008 and finished a stunning seventh in his first MotoGP race. He has also had top-15 finishes in Argentina, Jerez and Le Mans.

2007 British Supersport champion Michael Laverty, who is riding for PBM Aprilia in the premier class this year, completes the lineup.
