There will be prizes for everything from best classic and vintage to best engineered and best in show. Trade and club stands and enough food on offer to require a lengthy lie down afterwards.

27 MAY-9 JUNE ISLE OF MAN TT
The IOM TT is in ruder health than it’s ever been, with lap records getting ever more spectacular as the battle to be the fastest man on the island gets more and more competitive. There is nothing else on earth that compares to witnessing racing on the Mountain Course. It will blow your mind to bits.

10-11 JUNE CRMC SUPERSTOCK CHAMPIONSHIP RD 4
If you can’t make the PS Superstock action at Mallory on 20-21 May (see At a Glance) you’ll only have to wait a couple of weeks until the series goes to Cadwell. Every CRMC round is an event – there’s so much to see on track and in the paddock that you’ll need a whole weekend just to take it all in. Spectating is popular at CRMC races so you may need to take your seat early for a good view of Mountain action.
