The Isle of Man is known for its motor sport, having well-earned its nickname "the road racing capital of the world". Most famously this is because of the Isle of Man TT where thousands come each year to watch high-speed laps on the just under 38 mile road-based mountain course.
If you are lucky enough to visit during the TT fortnight of practice and race week you will no doubt have an experience to remember for a lifetime. But, for those of you who enjoy the roar of the engine and the smell of the petrol, there is still plenty for you to do during your visit at other times of the year.
The Festival of Motorcycling runs during August where a range of machines tackle the TT course, or more vintage machines can be seen during the Manx Classic which includes sprints and hill climbs.
Getting to know the Island during your trip as a motor sport fan is easier than ever with trike tours available to take you round key locations and really give you a feel for the Island's history and culture. You could even take a tour round the world-famous TT course with a series of stops along the way to view the famous landmarks and get some photos.
If you prefer something a little more off-road, trail rides and quad biking are available during your trip, letting you explore some of the more interesting parts of the Island while having a family adventure. Even if you are feeling competitive there is something for you, with go-karting available to let you challenge you friends and family during your holiday.
