“Sportsnet has enormous depth of experience when it comes to large scale sports events such as the Isle of Man TT. We developed our relationship with multiple TT winner and Sportsnet’s TT ambassador, Cameron Donald several years ago when we realised what our clients wanted was the kind of in-depth race experience only a current TT rider could help offer. This has allowed us to provide incredible events from tours of the circuit hosted by current and legend TT riders, fully-catered evening functions which include our famous TT Riders panel and hospitality days at one of the island’s great race vantage points, the Creg Ny Baa.” said Mr Cecconi.
