The Isle of Man TT will be here before you know it, and to help you along the way, we have put together a handy list with our top reasons why you should visit during TT Qualifying Week.
More On Track Action
With qualifying sessions taking place every day between Sunday and Friday, you won’t be short of qualifying sessions to watch. Each session includes at least qualifying sessions for two classes meaning that one minute you could be enjoying the lightweights swiftly followed by the superbikes.
Pre TT Classic racing is also held during the first weekend on the Southern 100 course in Castletown. This is not a time trial but a mass start on closed roads. It’s a must for any road racing fan.
You will be able to get to your favourite vantage points more easily. With qualifying sessions taking place most evenings (apart from Sunday and Friday, which are in the afternoon), you have all day to make your way over to your prime location. With fewer people around, you are more likely to be able to claim your favourite spot on the hedge.
Explore the Island during the daytime
With your days free, you will have a vast amount of opportunities to explore the beautiful Isle. Whether you are interested in heritage and culture or prefer getting active, we have something to suit all interests. The Isle of Man is an outdoor lovers paradise, and with burial sites and monuments aplenty, you can combine your love of the outdoors with a dose of the Island’s rich and checkered history.
Don’t forget if you are a member of English Heritage, CADW, National Trust or Historic Scotland, and you are entitled to free admission to all Manx National Heritage sites. Yet another reason to get out and explore all that the Isle of Man has to offer.
Demand is not as high in the qualifying week, meaning that you will have more choice when it comes to where you stay and when you wish to travel to the Island. Motorbike space on the ferry is plenty during the qualifying week, so you can even bring your motorcycle along for the ride. You may also find that it is a little bit cheaper in making it a more wallet-friendly option.
Easier to get around
With the roads along the TT course being open each day and with fewer bikes around, you may find it easier to travel around. The mountain road is also one way, so you will have the full TT experience, but with quieter roads making it that little bit safer.
More affordable than TT Race Week
Qualifying week is often seen as a more affordable option than TT Race week, and it’s easy to see why. There is less demand meaning that accommodation prices are often lower, and with more availability on sailings to the Island, you stand more chance of being able to bring your bike.
