The Snaefell Mountain Circuit is the most famous race course on the Isle of Man. It is the venue for the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy races and for the Classic TT, as well as parts of it acting as Manx Rally Stages. It is not, however, the only course on the Island and the Billown Circuit, in the South of the Isle of Man, holds its own annual races.
First held in 1955 the Southern 100 International Road Races currently include 12 races for various classes. Since 1962 this has included sidecar racing and now it is one of 5 Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) sanctioned international meetings in the British Isles.
Taking place a month after TT Fortnight it is an ideal event to visit the Island for if you did not manage to get your fix of racing during the TT Festival and want to enjoy watching racing with fewer crowds.
Aside from the races, the South of the Island has plenty to offer you during your trip. Heritage sites such as Castle Rushen and the Old House of Keys are popular spots to visit in Castletown and the Heritage Steam Railway, running through the South of the Island to the capital Douglas, is a great adventure for the entire family.
The Southern 100 2019 Road Races will take place 8th - 11th July 2019.
