TT Calendar Girl at Ace! 07/07/2012

Rachael Clegg, the creative artist and subject of the unique 2013 Isle of Man "Milestones" calendar, gives a nod to her heritage, both her father and grandfather were TT racers.  All of the props used in the photographs are genuine, lent to her by TT riders Guy Martin, John McGuiness (in whose leathers she was almost arrested!), and Ian Lougher, her father, a farmer and eccentric Manxman, who lent her the Goose.  Even the Jerrycan in the Brandywell image has a history - it belongs to veteran TT racer Vin Duckett.
This very special and thoroughly researched calendar, with its twelve unusual tales from the race's 105 year history, using each one as an inspiration for the different images captured on each page - the end result being 15 leaves of milestone madness! - is available at the cafe and on the cafe's web shop.
