Entitled ‘Back to the Future: The Hizzy Years’ this celebration will take place 30 years after Steve set the first ever 120mph lap around the Mountain Course, a speed that remains a benchmark three decades on.

Here’s those all-important dates and times for your diary to ensure you don't miss any of the action from the island this August. Download the full Classic TT Schedule as a PDF here.

Keep up to date with any last-minute schedule changes, and insider information, by following Clerk of the Course, Gary Thompson, on Twitter, and the official IOM TT Facebook page.

 

Don't forget if you're travelling over to the Classic TT this year, that the Isle of Man isn’t part of the UK or the EU – it’s a self-governing British Crown Dependency with its own parliament, government and laws. This means that you don’t get automatic access to free healthcare through your EHIC card, but UK residents can take advantage of a reciprocal emergency healthcare agreement. However, repatriation is not included as part of this agreement, so the Isle of Man government still strongly recommends adequate insurance is in place.

So if you’re travelling to the IoM from the UK or beyond, you still need travel insurance to cover medical emergencies. Your bike insurance will (or should…check your policy) cover damage to your bike or a third party, but your medical needs are not fully covered.
