Races

Fast Fun ... on roads, off roads, and across the sea. Take in the constant action of racing on the Isle of Man, Road Racing Capital of the World.

The Isle of Man has had a long history of racing. Commonly known for motorcycle racing, such as the TT (Tourist Trophy) and Southern 100, though also many others. Motorcycle racing is not all the island hold fast to. Other motor sports, such as Rally Racing and Motor-cross also bring visitors and competitors to the island.

Each year the island sees cyclists, runners and many more come to its shores for racing. Even less conventional racing such as the World Tin Bath Races and Go Karts get a place to test the abilities of competitors.
