Motorcycle SUPERSHOW, January 2-4, 2015 at the International Centre.

Growing up with a learning disability, author Nicole Winters was neither a good student nor an avid reader. It wasn’t until she was assigned to read S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders did all that change. Devouring the novel in one day, she realized that the right story could engage even the most reluctant of readers. She went on to read a variety of subjects including hobbies, nonfiction and more. She realized her school marks were not an accurate reflection of her intelligence. This is a message she’d like all students who struggle in school to understand.


Nicole Winters travelled to the Isle of Man in 2010 and 2011 to research this story, securing a press pass enabling her to speak with privateers, podium champs, marshals, mechanics and pit crew. She attended newcomers meetings and even volunteered as a roadside marshal. TT: Full Throttle is the first fictional book that centres on the IOMTT Races.

“I know what it’s like to try your hardest and not see results on the page. Don’t let C’s and D’s make you feel inadequate or less than. There are many kinds of intelligence (spatial, musical, logical-mathematical, people smart, etc.) and school only measures some of these; it’s up to you to figure out what makes you happy and pursue your passion.” Said Nicole Winters

TT Full Throttle is a heart‐thumping story about the world‐renowned TT motorcycle races!
