Southern 100 2024

68th Anniversary Road Races 2024

First run-on Thursday 14th July 1955, the three race Southern 100 Road Races were described by certain media of the day as ambitious for a first ever meeting and attracted seventy-three entries. The Southern now attracts over 300 entries each year.

Taking its name from the premier 500cc event, which was held over 100 miles, the Southern soon gained National Status, then an International event from 2007and today it is one of the most popular events on the road-racing calendar.

From its inception, the Southern 100 has provided the keenest competition among some  of the best-known names in British racing, including multi world champions Phil Read,  Brian Reid and Joey Dunlop and Sidecar champions Charlie Freeman, Steve Webster  Klaus Klaffenbock, Tim Reeves and the Birchall brothers. And in recent years, riders’ names have read like the  ‘who’s-who’ of the road-racing scene pitting their skills against the 4.25-mile Billown public road course. Names such as Ian Lougher, Jason Griffiths, Phillip McCallen, Robert Dunlop, Dave Leach and more recently Guy Martin, Michael Dunlop, and Dean Harrison, along with Chris Vincent, Lowry Burton, Dave Molyneux, Nick Crowe, and Ian Bell in the sidecars – such is the attraction to what has become known over the intervening 65 years as ‘the friendly races’.

Four action packed days the Steam Packet sponsored Southern ‘100’, followed by the ‘unique’ Open Air Prize Presentation in Castletown Square really adds a special atmosphere to what has become known over the decades as ‘the friendly races.’

Classes catered for include: Superbike, Supersport 600cc, 650cc SuperTwins, 250cc and ever popular Formula 2 Sidecar conforming to Formula 600cc rules.

Certainly, for the extra spice in road racing come and enjoy the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company Southern 100 International Road Races being held between July 8th – 12th July 2024 which will be full of excitement and emotion and is Unmissable!
