The notorious Isle of Man TT is a bucket list item for anyone who loves bikes. But if you’re going to make the pilgrimage to the motorcycling Mecca in the middle of the Irish Sea… you’re going to want to do it right.
A Sportsnet Holidays Isle of Man TT escorted tour is one of the best ways to make the most of the experience. Here are a few reasons why…
Benefits of doing a Sportsnet Holidays Isle of Man TT Escorted Tour
They organise your transport to and from the Isle of Man: Ferry tickets can be hard to come by during the TT, but Sportsnet has you covered with a dedicated tour guide meeting you in England to take the ferry to the Isle of Man. And the same on the way back.
All Sportsnet’s Isle of Man TT escorted tour packages include ferry tickets to and from the Isle of Man.
Let local coach drivers move you around the Island
With a 37+ mile course on public roads, it pays to have your own private transport sorted… trust us.
Sportsnet Holidays escorted tours utilise local coach drivers to pick you up and drop you back at your hotel at the start and end of each day, avoiding road closures, eliminating transport hassles and opening up your ability to experience many different sections of the course.
And if you’re lucky, you may even get a former TT rider driving your bus, like last year’s 10-day tour who had the pleasure of being escorted each day by 1988 TT podium finisher, Roger Hurst.
Watch from a different vantage point each day
Having too many great places to watch the racing from is a unique problem the Mountain Course has. It’s all good for locals who can to test a new location each year… but if you’re coming from the other side of the world, you want to see as many of the famous vantage points as possible.
Sportsnet’s Isle of Man TT escorted tours transport you to a different vantage point each day so you can experience the best grandstands, hair-raising roadside locations and iconic pubs around the course in one visit.
Imagine one day you’re on the historic TT grandstand looking down onto the start line, pit land and trophy presentation; next day you’re standing by a hedge feeling the rush of riders flashing past just a few feet away; next you’re standing on the balcony of the famous Creg Ny Baa with a drink in hand, watching the riders come straight toward you before laying down for a right-hand turn and disappearing in the other direction.
Access money-can’t-buy experiences
Whether it’s taking a lap of the TT course with live commentary from a TT rider or rubbing shoulders with TT royalty at Sportsnet’s TT Rider Panel dinner function, there are certain experiences that only come with a Sportsnet Holiday escorted tour.
Sportsnet’s most recent dinner function on the Isle of Man was hosted by 2-time TT winner Cameron Donald and featured a highly entertaining line-up of Davo Johnson, James Hillier, Josh Brookes, Davey Todd and the Birchall brothers!
