The iconic – and notorious – Isle of Man TT returns to the sporting calendar following a two-year absence and it will be shown live on TV for the very first time in its history.


The 37-mile Snaefell Mountain Course is one of the most treacherous and revered motorsport circuits in the world and draws in some of the finest riders to put their talents to the ultimate test.

Victories in races are always welcome and celebrated, but racking up the fastest average speed around the course is seen as the ultimate prize. The current record was set in 2018 by Peter Hickman who averaged 135.45mph over the sub 17-minute, 37-mile trek.

That level of speed and treachery comes with a cost, however. The Isle of Man TT is so challenging, it has claimed the lives of 263 riders since it began in 1911. Since 1937, only one edition of the annual event has been staged without fatalities (1982).

Fans have deep respect for the riders who risk everything for glory in the week of hard racing, and more coverage than ever before will open up the TT to new viewers around the globe.
