Bike insurance specialist Bennetts has renewed its partnership with the Isle of Man TT races and will remain the title sponsor of the Classic TT races for 2017.
Taking place over the August bank holiday, the Classic TT offers four days of pure motorcycling nostalgia with some of the world's most exotic motorcycles and finest road racers taking on the 37.73-mile course.
As well as the title sponsorship, Bennetts has also retained the naming rights to the ‘Bennetts Lightweight TT Race’ and the classic event’s blue riband event, the ‘Bennetts Senior Classic TT Race’, in which the likes of John McGuinness, Michael Dunlop, Peter Hickman and Bruce Anstey are likely to take part.
Vince Chaney, Managing Director of Bennetts said: “The increased profile of the Isle of Man TT races and Classic TT races gives Bennetts an important platform to promote our services to the motorcycling community and is an integral part of our communications programme. Bennetts is a motorcycle insurance specialist with over 85 years of heritage and we are able to provide high quality comprehensive support and cover for many different machines. The TT represents a great way of speaking to our existing customers as well as reaching new motorcyclists. This year we’ll focus our efforts on using our exclusive partnership with the Isle of Man TT and Classic TT to deliver exciting, money can’t buy, experiences for our customers on the island. We will also provide a behind the scenes look at the events via our social media and BikeSocial platforms for those who can’t be there.”
Rob Callister, MHK, Political Member, Isle of Man Government Department of Economic Development for Tourism and Motorsport added: "We are really pleased to have retained the support of Bennetts across both events, which is a major endorsement of the continued strength and appeal of the TT races and Classic TT. The company has been a long term partner for us on the Isle of Man and they are an important contributor to the growing success and rising popularity of both events."
With an endless amount of things to see and do over the course of the Classic TT, BikeSocial will be on the front line to bring you all the latest news from the island. We’ll also be revealing some special events for Bennetts customers who are in attendance.
