“With just 1 week until the greatest road racing event in the world starts, we’d like to welcome on-board the Wicked Wagon, who shall not only be fuelling the Sidecar during the fortnight but also ourselves with their amazing Wicked Coffee.

If you haven’t tried one yet you don’t know what you’re missing out on! We are really grateful for the sponsorship.”

Celebrating today it’s 1st birthday since it’s incarnation last year, Wicked Wagon’s TT 2019 presence alongside backing Melvin Racing, also sees them have a stand located at Quarter Bridge car park, for the whole TT fortnight.

Commenting on her company’s TT 2019 project’s, Wicked Wagon owner Laurie Royston, stated:

“This first year has been amazing and a little bit crazy, so to start our second year with a TT pitch is beyond anything we had hoped for.

My husband and I are both huge TT fans and have worked as marshals on the course, so we will be offering a 20 percent discount to all marshals, race officials and medics to show our support for the amazing work they do.

We will be moving from our normal pitch on Friday 24th May, ready for the first practice sessions on Saturday and will of course be selling our exclusive fresh barista Diavolo coffee, as well as our famous own recipe Wicked Burgers and Wicked Wursts.”
