Isle of Man TT

Isle of Man TT

For two weeks every year, tens of thousands of motorsport fans descend on the Isle of Man to witness the iconic Tourist Trophy Races, where Bennetts is the title sponsor of the Lightweight TT class.

The time trial format sees competitors set off at 10 second intervals and is currently not available as a live broadcast due to the scale of the 37 ¾ mile circuit.

Instead, fans are left in suspense as they wait for each rider to reach each of the check points as they race against the clock - not necessarily the rider in front of them.

The Bennetts Lightweight TT event was re-introduced for the 2012 races on the Mountain course, with a change to water-cooled four-stroke twin cylinder engines not exceeding 650cc.

In 2016, Ivan Lintin won the four-lap Bennetts Lightweight TT race after seeing off the early challenge of James Hillier. It marked the second win in a row for Lintin – and third for his RC Express Racing team – as well as making him the first rider to win the race twice since it was re-introduced in 2012.

Every year, the TT gets more and more popular and lap records tumble year on year– currently the outright record stands at an average speed of 133.962 mph.

Bennetts-backed John McGuinness is no slouch at the event either with 23 TT wins and a record braking 46 podiums to his name.
