Isle of Man TT 2017

Event & Race Guide

The Isle of Man TT is a two-week festival held on a 37-mile plus race course featuring events on and off the track.

With the circuit being on closed public roads the track is open when there are no racing or practices taking place, you can (if you have your bike) do laps of the course but beware traffic will also be on the roads it's not a race track! The mountain section from Ramsey to Douglas is one way but speed limits are in place.

Held in the last week of May and the first week of June the Isle of Man TT is split into two weeks the first being known as qualifying or practice week, with daily sessions held in the evening from 6.30pm through to 9 pm where riders can get the bikes up to speed ready for the main race week.

During the practice sessions, the riders can choose which bikes they want to get the most laps on so you are guaranteed to see a real mixture of bikes on the track, previous years have seen unofficial lap records being broken. The sessions are held from Saturday to Friday (except Sunday) and feature top riders such as John McGuinness and Guy Martin from the Monday night through to the final night of Friday.

Race week is the second week of the festival and see's races held on Saturday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday of which each race day features different races, the races tend to follow the same pattern year on year with the Superbike races held on Saturday and Friday's while the Sidecar races are held on Saturday and Wednesday.

On the non-race days during race week, Sunday known as Mad Sunday is a day where the general public do a lap or laps of the course, the roads are not closed so it's not a racing track but visitors tend to go around the track. Peel day which is a fun day in Peel located on the east of the island also takes place on Sunday.

Tuesday of race week see's the Ramsey Sprint which is a day of sprint races along the promenade in Ramsey, here you can see some wacky and crazy machines! Thursday's attention turns to Laxey where a bike show is held, you can even show your own bike off!


Little and unknown races take place on the Southern 100 circuit in near to Castletown in the south of the island. The Pre-TT Classic races take place the weekend at the start of the main practices while the Post TT Races are run on the Saturday after the Senior TT, another excuse not to leave the island early!
