A week of qualifying, which for 2020 begins on Saturday 22nd August, often merely hints at the incredible racing to follow as competitors and their teams get to grips with their classic machines and come to terms with the challenge of racing on the TT Mountain Course.
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.
