Get ready for a wild ride at the Isle of Man TT 2017

 

Hold on to your helmets – it’s going to be a lightning ride at the Isle of Man TT 2017! Motor on down to Douglas this May or June and join the thousands of other bikers en route to one of the most famous events on the Isle of Man – and one of the most renowned biking events in the world.

 

Now in its 110th year, the Isle of Man TT 2017 will take place over 10 dates in May and June. Practice sessions run from late May to early June, while the four race days will be held over June 3, 4, 7 and 9.

 

This hotly-anticipated highlight of the racing calendar promises to bring together some of the speediest riders from across the globe for unparalleled high-octane action on the world-famous mountain course.

 

What’s on at the Isle of Man TT 2017

 

With 19 of the first 20 seeded riders having lapped over 128 mph, and an average TT lap speed of 130 mph, it’s safe to say that the Isle of Man TT 2017 could be the closest yet in over a century!

 

Get ready to cheer on all your favourite famous faces, including 23-time TT winner John McGuinness, Ian Hutchinson and New Zealander Bruce Anstey, as well as some familiar names like lap record holder Michael Dunlop – nephew of the late, great world champion motorcyclist Joey Dunlop.

 

Riders will race for victory over more than 37 miles, challenged by hundreds of corners, sheer descents and rises to elevations of more than 400m.

 

Where to watch from

 

There are some new arrangements for the Isle of Man TT 2017 – as well as the main grandstand and the temporary bandstand at Creg-ny-baa, two others will be set up in Noble’s Park, one in the north and a second in the south.

 

The Creg-ny-baa grandstand, as diehard fans will already know, offers superb views of all the racing action and is located just below the Keppel Hotel. Noble’s Park South grandstand, meanwhile – formely the Fanzone – is the place to be to watch the winners ride to glory.

 

New for 2017 is the Noble’s Park North grandstand, located between the south grandstand and the VIP enclosure. From here, spectators can see the starting point and watch riders race by towards Bray Hill.

 

Alternatively, the main bandstand on Glencrutchery Road is a super vantage point from which to witness riders begin another lap or make a pit stop. Right in the heart of the action, the main grandstand is within easy reach of the paddock, merch tents and the food stalls.

 

What else to see at the Isle of Man TT 2017?

 

In addition to the thrilling racing action, there will be plenty to keep visitors entertained at the Isle of Man TT 2017. Live music, refreshments, trade stalls and more will be put on to keep everyone occupied between races.

 

Carole Nash is proud to be sponsoring the Bushys tent, where you’ll be able to relax and refresh with a chilled beer while enjoying some fantastic live tunes. Pick up some merch, enjoy the piping hot food and soak up some sunshine (not guaranteed!).

 

If you’re lucky enough to pick up a VIP ticket, you’ll even have the chance to get close to your biking heroes and watch live interviews with the race winners. There are different levels of VIP tickets, you can find out more here.
