Join our inaugural tour to this iconic event - on the top of any biker’s ‘must do’ list!

If you had to pick JUST ONE motorcycle race to be the definitive event on two wheels, the Isle of Man TT wins hands down.

With over 100 years of history, this is the event that draws legions of the most serious bike racing fans from all over the world.

We are delighted to announce that following years of customer requests, we will be running a very limited pilot tour to this event in 2012!

This is designed as a top VIP programme with little expense spared. Our goal is to get you as close to the action as possible without taking a pillion seat!

Highlights of the programme include:

  1. Top waterfront hotel in Douglas - at the heart of the action

  2. Top ‘Platinum’ VIP hospitality on Senior Race day, with grandstand, rider guests, much much more

  3. Track lap on senior race day in official course car

  4. Private team guest throughout stay with special viewing on race Wednesday

  5. Private dinner with top IoM personality

  6. Private guided tour of the circuit with lunch, conducted by expert racer

  7. Tons of opportunities to meet the stars, see the teams and bikes up close

  8. All transfers between hotel-airport, hotel-track, and other activities

  9. Top VIP guides throughout: No more than 5:1 customers:staff!

We are only taking a VERY FEW number of people to this event in 2012. It IS a pilot, so expect a few rough edges; on the other hand we will be falling over ourselves to provide an amazing experience!

The Hotel

We are based in one of the iconic hotels on the Island, and a short walk to the grandstands and action - The Palace Hotel & Casino.

This 4* Hotel (formerly the Hilton) is the island's only licensed casino and the largest night club + cinema. Fantastic location just meters from the beach puts you right in the heart of the action in Douglas. Hotel features a health club, gym, indoor swimming pool, two restaurants and a no fewer than 4 bars! A perfect base to experience the Isle of Man TT in style!

The Palace Hotel - all rooms have King beds
Hotel has swimming pool with bay view!
Sidecars are part of the fun!

We are sure to see the legendary John McGuinness!
