Isle of Man – Festival of Motoring 15 – 17 September 2023 – exclusive invitation to participate.

 

Isle of Man, is famous with motoring fans for the TT (or Tourist Trophy) annual motorcycle races which have been held since 1907 and the fact that it is an island with no speed limits outside towns. We are delighted that the I7N member clubs have been invited to the 2023 Isle of Man Festival of Motoring as special guests together with American Car Club. This means we will have a priority booking until the 30th June 2022 and a discount for member clubs of 20 GBP per car until that date.

 

Events during the weekend include; exclusive closed road runs on the Sloc Mountain Road (photo 1), a static car display on Douglas seafront (photo 2), visit and admission to the Isle of Man Motor Museum & the Jurby Transport Museum, TT Grandstand Photo Shoot (photo 3), a Motorcade on the TT circuit from the TT Grandstand to Ramsey (photo 4), Afternoon Tea at the famous Creg-Ny-Baa (Photo 7)and an exclusive closed road run on the TT Mountain Road ( photo 5).  (note photos are all from previous events)

Opinion of a participant

“We had high hopes for this trip but the experience was beyond our wildest dreams. Brilliantly organised, beautiful weather, stunning scenery, friendly participants and locals, what more could we ask for? On top of that, the opportunity to do something that many would envy a few get to do and live to tell the tale, driving the Sloc and Snaefell mountains on the wrong side of the road! Afternoon tea at the Creg-Ny-Baa and a lovely gala dinner evening with a great band, motor museums, and plenty of time to explore the island added up to a fabulous weeks holiday“.
