Isle of Man TT Official Partner - Sportsnet Holidays

The Isle of Man TT® is undoubtedly the most revered and iconic race in the world of motorcycle racing and is accordingly on the ‘bucket list’ of every bike racing fan. With a history stretching back to 1907, motorcyclists have been making the pilgrimage to ‘The Isle’ to witness the world’s bravest and most skilled riders pursue (given that there’s relatively very little prize money on offer) nothing more than the glory and prestige of being awarded the title of the fastest around the Snaefell Mountain Course.

If you’re interested in experiencing the World’s Greatest Road Race, the Isle of Man TT® LIVE in 2020, please take a moment to register your interest by completing the Enquiry Form below.

COACH TOUR OF THE TT COURSE
Kick off your TT trip with a lap of your own! On the first day of the tour you’ll experience every metre of the 37.73 miles Snaefell Mountain Course with a former or current TT rider talking you through every corner and undulation. Previous guests on the coach have included two-time TT winner, Cameron Donald, and fastest ever Australian around the course, David ‘Davo’ Johnson.

EVENING PRACTICE FROM THE OFFICIAL VIP SUITE
The Official VIP Suite is located within the paddock area, so you’re able to come and go from the Suite as you please to soak in the electric atmosphere as teams and riders do their final shakedown before Race Day 1. Included with your pass to the Official VIP Suite is entry to the TT Main Grandstand located above the pits, so you’ll be able to see some of the hardest and fastest launches you’re ever likely to see! Within the VIP Suite itself you’ll be able to help yourself to a delicious two-course buffet dinner.

RIDERS PANEL DINNER FUNCTION
Another exclusive for Sportsnet Holidays travellers, the Sportsnet Riders Panel Dinner is possibly the highlight of the entire tour. Hosted by Cameron Donald, the Dinner is your chance to rub shoulders with some of the fastest and bravest racers in the world and ask them the questions you’ve always wondered about. The Dinner is also a great opportunity for you to grab some signatures and a few snaps as well. The evening includes a two course buffet dinner and drinks (including spirits) throughout. Previous guests have included John McGuinness, Ian Hutchinson, Bruce Anstey and James Hillier amongst others.

A DAY AT CREG-NY-BAA
Perhaps the most iconic pub on The Isle, the Creg-Ny-Baa is certainly the one with the best view of the action! Situated on a sharp right corner of the same name, the balcony of ‘The Creg’ overlooks the corner and allows you to see the riders hurtling down the mountain at 300+ km/h before braking heavily to get down to 2nd gear for the sharp right-hander. The best thing about ‘The Creg’, Sportsnet clients have exclusive accessº to the upstairs bar and balcony for the entire day. Drinks are provided for the entire day and the catering is bloody amazing!

FAREWELL DRINKS
Held on the evening of Race Day 4 and your last night on The Isle (unless you’ve extended your stay of course!), as it’s name suggests the Farewell Drinks is your chance to say goodbye to your fellow Sportsnet travellers and discuss the last week-and-a-bit of racing. In fact, in the past we’ve had a few riders make appearances, so there’s even a chance you’ll get a debrief from a rider’s perspective! Naturally, drinks and nibbles are supplied throughout the night!

“What a fabulous trip to the TT on the Isle of Man with a superior Travel agency! Would do it again in a heart beat!”
– Judith Parsons, 16 July 2018


“We travelled to the IOM TT 2018 with Sportsnet Holidays and from the very beginning we knew it would be an amazing holiday. The excitement of reading about the inclusions in the package was hugely outdone by actually being there and experiencing it all. From meeting the riders, having the best vantage points, being able to do a lap of the course (twice for us as I won a fast lap in a course car!) meeting so many lovely people and being looked after so well by our tour guides (Glynn, Bec, Brooke and Maria). I would highly recommend Sportsnet holidays as the experts in the business. Awesome!”
– Mel Yip, 15 July 2018


“Fantastic trip, the host’s were very helpful, a very well organised tour, will be back in 2020. Thanks Sportsnet and cheers to one and all…”
– Martin Dowson, 15 July 2018


“My father and his mate travelled to the Isle of man TT this year and this was their first overseas trip. From the very first phone call to Sportsnet the service provided by Brooke in the booking process was exceptional. She did everything she said she was going to do and made the booking process extremely simple and stress free. The information provided prior to the trip and during the trip ensured everything ran like clock work.

Brooke Glynn and Bec were highly professional and friendly and could not have asked for a better level of service from them.

The trip itself was terrific and you wouldn’t change a thing. One of the highlights of the trips was the lap of the TT course provided in the tour. By far both Dad and his mate agree it was the best trip they have ever done and would recommend to anyone to use Sportsnet Holidays to visit the Isle of Man as their inside knowledge and connections have you experiencing things you would not be able to do on your own. They are still in disbelief as to what they saw. Thank you for a trip of a lifetime!”
– Shannon Burtenshaw, 15 July 2018


“An AWESOME journey from start to finish!!! First time overseas for me and I struck gold!!! 100% gold!!! The whole team at sportsnet were very friendly professional and helpful on any given day !! I will never forget my holiday to the Isle Of Man 2018 perfect weather unbelievable racing and an awesome Island totally mind blowing!!! Thanks so much Sportsnet!!! Memories for a life time!!!”
– Stuart Glennie, 7 July 2018


“I have recently returned from the Isle of Man having done my booking with Sportnet. Travelling alone from NZ they made the whole trip so easy for me. Thank you so much!”
– Trish Best, 3 July 2018


“I’ve just completed a trip to the Isle of Man TT organised through Sportsnet with my 79 year old father & the service provided by this company & it’s staff was second to none. We had a fantastic time & I’ll be going back for sure. The information provided & the help we received before leaving Australia & from the time we arrived was faultless. The events we attended & the days on the track were just fantastic, all you had to do was walk out the front of the hotel & straight onto the bus & off you went.

The small things that Sportsnet provided, such as mobile phones, deck chairs & a number of other things just made managing things a piece of cake.

The guest presenters at the functions that Sportsnet put on were truly special, who would of thought that we would get to meet a legend of the sport like John McGuinness.

To all the crew at Sporstnet, a big thank you for providing me with the trip of a lifetime with my father.
Going to the TT, go with Sportsnet, you be mad if you didn’t.”
– Glen Fuz, 27 June 2018


“Communication was great from my initial enquiry until departure. The IOM trip is itself exceeded our expectations and provided some memories that will no doubt last a lifetime. Highly recommend.”
– Shaun Clancy, 25 June 2018


“My partner and I traveled to the Isle Of Man with Sportsnet this year 2018. This was our first time traveling overseas, we inquired with Sportsnet about the Isle of Man TT and from that moment on they made the whole experience so easy. From the easy payment system to keeping us updated along the way. Even the ability to change our return flights to allow us to extend our holiday. The itinerary was perfect from the minute we left til the minute we got home. The Sportsnet itinerary allowed us to do thing that we would never have been able to arrange ourselves like a guided lap of the TT coarse and meeting of several riders. I wouldn’t hesitate to travel with Sportsnet again, their staff conducted them self very professionally and it’s a holiday we will never forget. Thank you Ian Hill and Sportsnet Holidays.”
– Terry Page, 22 June 2018


“Always wanted to go to the Isle of Man TT. On the bucket list. Finally bit the bullet booked with Sportsnet. Glynn was my contact nothing was too much trouble and if he wasn’t there he phoned back quickly. Everything about the trip exceeded expectations, from the VIP tent to the exclusive meet the riders night. All food and drinks complementary. Talks from the riders, question time and autographs signed. The staff were with us all the way and a greater group you could not find. Best trip ever.”
– Peter Olsson, 22 June 2018
