Clas­sic TT Isle of Man

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

Why it’s special A TT for en­thu­si­asts of clas­sic bikes, the Clas­sic TT is more chilled-out than the main event and sees a wide ar­ray of his­toric ma­chines rid­den by top names in­clud­ing Michael Dun­lop, Bruce An­stey and Peter Hick­man.

The four races are as hec­tic as any TT, and the 37.73-mile course is ex­actly the same. The bikes are stun­ning – the su­per­bike race sees 500GP bikes and 750cc Wsb-spec bikes go against big bangers like Suzuki XR69S. No other race event has the va­ri­ety.

Away from the cir­cuit the at­mos­phere is more re­laxed and there is loads to see and do. The clas­sic fes­ti­val at Jurby is worth go­ing to on its own – there are some great bikes and le­gends rid­ing – last year saw Fred­die Spencer at­tend. O Info www.iomtt.com
