The original TT Grandstand was the responsibility of the Auto Cycle Union.
Each year they put it up and took it down. By 1921 complaints were being
made about the cost for assembling and dismantling the grandstand.
During the same year other issues were raised, such as the need for a crane
to lift motor-bikes from ferry vessels, the abolition of road taxes,
improvements to the course and the ability to race on Sunday. These issues
turned into disagreements and there was talk of moving the TT to Belgium.
After much debate, Douglas Town Council yielded to the words of George
Brown from the Isle of Man Weekly Times, who spoke on the behalf of the
Auto Cycle Union Committee. The needs would be met and Douglas
Corporation built a new permanent TT Grandstand. The future of the TT on
the island looked secured.
In 1960, the Douglas Council acquired 17 acres of land next to Glencrutchery
Road. It was from this site that repairs and improvements to the TT
Grandstand were made over the years which followed. In 1985, a piece of
land was dedicated to the Isle of Man Tourist Board as the site for a
new Grandstand. This is the TT Grandstand used today.
