PROGRAMME DETAILS


FRIDAY 30/May  Arrival day, 8 night package

However you arrive, we would be delighted to pick you up or make your own way to the Sefton Hotel on the Douglas promenade where a room is reserved in your name.


Meet your guide in the evening at the hotel bar for an opening Happy Hours drink. You will be happy to be here!


SATURDAY 31/May Race day 1


Finally all the practice comes to a point!  Races are expected to be:
  1. Superbike Race 1

  2. Sidecar Race 1


One is spoiled for choice for GREAT pubs on the island and in particular along the course.  We take you to one of these for some great viewing of the action, a great pub meal and of course great beer!


We conclude the first exhilarating day of racing with a dinner at a local favourite.


SUNDAY 1/Jun Mad Sunday


Always a magic day at the Island - as wannabe racers try their hands on the course (we do not recommend this!) and the place is wall-to-wall parties.


We join a special Mad Sunday hospitality with guest speakers, food, drink (alcohol is on a pay bar), and lots of things going on! You can take a tour of the paddock and generally take in the atmosphere.  In the evening it is a walk to the Promenade to join more parties! (Find me in Bushys!)

As with all days - guest speakers/tours are subject to availability and circumstances.


MONDAY 2/Jun Race day 2
(& usual arrival date 5 night package)


We take a “viewer’s-eye tour” of the Island hitting 2 of our favourite viewing spots. This isn’t VIP hospitality! We watch the racing the way most people see it - and get the thrill of the bikes zooming by so near you could shave the pilot!


“Traditional” picnic lunch included!


Welcome drink at hotel bar for all package guests!


TUESDAY 3/Jun Quiet day


A quiet day at the Island, a great chance to do a bit of sightseeing!


We do a tour of the Island with a local guide & yummy pub lunch! 


In the evening we have our annual Welcome Dinner. We have a couple of special speakers lined up (such as Conor Cummins pictured) to help you get caught up on all the action so far. A great evening of food, drinks and great company!


WEDNESDAY 4/Jun Race day 3


You spend the day as a special guest of our partner team Klaffi Racing!  Superb hospitality, great stunt show, and you can literally touch the riders from our pit-return lane unit. Former 3x world champion Klaus Klaffi and his team of Ben and Tom Birchall have done us the honour of winning podiums in the past two years, in 2013 winning the race!


In addition to hospitality throughout the day, you will have the opportunity to meet the team, riders and all the machinery.  To view the races, we also provide choice grandstand seats.


Races are expected to be:


  1. SES TT Zero Challenge

  2. Supersport TT Race 2

  3. Sidecar TT Race 2

  4. Senior Qualifying

  5. Lightweight Qualifying


We finish the day with a brilliant meal at a local restaurant!


THURSDAY 5/Jun Course Tour day


There is no racing today, so we take advantage of this to take a private tour of the track with an expert, racer guide! (Ryan Farquhar in 2012 & 2013)


We stop for lunch at the legendary Cregg-ny-baa inn and generally take in the Isle of Man.


Evening is a free programme and a chance for you to explore the astonishing Douglas nightlife during the TT! We usually organise a table at a local restaurant on shared cost basis.


FRIDAY 6/Jun Senior race day


The IoM climax!  We take you to the paddock with main grandstand tickets.
