Smile Isle of Man TT 2009 Coverage & Details

TT 2009



The greatest road race festival in the world will roar back into life on May 30th, 2009!

After the excitement of the 2008 Isle of Man TT celebrations, when fans were treated to some of the most competitive racing the event has ever seen, all eyes are now on TT2009.

The TT attracted tens of thousands of fans to the Island, with many more who following the action from home, and everyone enjoyed a feast of two-wheeled drama.

John McGuinnness overcame a disappointing start to the TT to record his 14th victory in the Dainese Senior TT on the last day of racing on the Mountain course.

It was dramatic battle throughout the six lap race, with Cameron Donald putting the outright lap record holder under severe pressure.

Despite finishing runner-up in the Senior, it was an incredible TT for young Australian Donald, who claimed victory in the Dainese Superbike and Scottish Life International Superstock races.

There was also a maiden win for Steve Plater in the first of the Relentless Supersport TT races, with veteran Kiwi Bruce Anstey taking the victory in the second Supersport race.

Plus, it was all action in the Sure Mobile Sidecar TT races, with Nick Crowe and Mark Cox recording a double TT win.

Chair legend Dave Molyneux was unable to finish the first Sidecar race, but he and Crowe put on the race-long battle everyone had longed for in the second race, and was just pipped at the line.

The Sidecar races were also notable for the performances of John Holden and Andrew Winkle, who took two podium places, and World Champion Tim Reeves, who took a third place finish with Patrick Farrance in his very first TT race.

As if that wasn't enough, 2008 also saw the return of the Ultra-Lightweight and Lightweight TT races, running on the Billown Circuit in the south of the Isle of Man.

The races, held the day after the Senior, saw Chris Palmer and Ian Lougher add to their tallies of TT wins after two dramatic and fascinating competitions.

TT 2009 promises to be another amazing TT, with big names, major manufacturers and more of the greatest road racing on Earth all set for the Isle of Man.

Smile Become A Tt Marshal

Marshals


You do not have to be intrepid or a first aider, although it helps. You don't need any previous training and inexperienced marshals are never left alone.

You also do not have to marshal at every single practice and race sessions.

You do need to be sensible - this is serious stuff - and you cannot take your camera or your pet dog!

You can apply to be marshal from the age of 16, although you may need signed parental consent if you are under 18.

You can, to some extent, choose where on the course you marshal.

Becoming a marshal gives you membership of a prestigious club. You are issued with an armband, which you can keep as a memento of the experience, and you gain the knowledge that you might make the difference between a session going ahead and being called off - just imagine if there were not enough marshals to run the event safely!

If you have watched a race, in full, from one location you could have been a marshal at that position. don't just watch the TT, be part of it!

Please consider joining the TT Marshals Assocation.
The website,
http://www.iomttma.com has all the information you need to become part of the action.

SIDEBAR:
So, you are going to be at the world-famous Isle of Man TT.
Maybe you will have travelled many miles, over land and sea, to enjoy the thrill at the Road Racing Capital of the World, or you might live in the Isle of Man and have taken TT fortnight off work - as many do - to enjoy the spectacle.

Clearly the event doesn't just happen. Many months of meetings, planning, training, investment and hard work precede the last week in May, when the teams, fans and associated cavalcades start to arrive and practices get under way.

Careful planning is required to run the practice and race sessions - or any event that requires closed roads. Many people are required, timekeepers, radio operators, police, medical personnel, safety personnel and event clerks and organisers to name just a few.

However, the largest group of people without whom the TT simply could not take place is the marshals.

Start planning your trip to TT2009





If you were not among the tens of thousands of fans who made it to the Isle of Man for the 2008 TT, make sure you don’t miss next year’s festival!

Visiting the Isle of Man TT is a unique experience, and a one everyone should have at least once.

However, if you’ve never been before, planning a trip can be a little daunting.

If you are having trouble knowing where to start, the Official Website of the Isle of Man TT is here to help.

We have put together a basic guide to visiting the TT, with hints and tips on travel, accommodation, spectating and more, plus loads of useful links.

It isn’t intended to be an exhaustive guide, but should certainly help you get started with planning your trip to the Isle of Man.
The TT is always an amazing experience, but the 2009 event is set to be one of the most memorable.

This year’s festival saw some of the best racing in memory, first time victories for Cameron Donald and Steve Plater and a sidecar double for Manxman Nick Crowe.

History was also made by the introduction of a new circuit hosting TT races. The Billown course in the south of the Island was the venue for the re-introduction of the Lightweight and Ultra-Lightweight TT races. The 125cc and 250cc events proved so successful it is hoped they will be repeated next year – although that is yet to be confirmed.

Plus, of course, there was that incredible victory by John McGuinness in the Senior TT. The win was the 14th for McGuinness around the Mountain course, equalling the record of the great Mike Hailwood and only bettered by the legendary Joey Dunlop.

The Morecambe rider has confirmed he will be back next year as part of the Honda effort. Honda are expected to be a huge part of the 2009 TT as it is a very special anniversary for the Japanese manufacturer, and that should mean some real treats and surprises.

To start planning your trip to the TT visit our guide.

If, after reading the guide, you still have questions, why not visit the Isle of Man Government’s Department of Tourism and Leisure website or emails us at [email protected]
