Isle of Man TT: No Ticket Price Increase

2011 Isle of Man TT

Despite the 2.5 percent rise in UK VAT on Jan. 4, ticket prices for the 2011 Isle of Man TT have not been increased.

Agents selling the Isle of Man TT tickets have announced prices for VIP hospitality and general Grandstand admission will be unchanged during January.

It is expected the prices will increase in February to reflect the new VAT rate of 20% which came into effect on Tuesday.

VIP hospitality and Grandstand tickets for the 2011 Isle of Man TT are on sale now – and they are the ideal gift for any fan of racing on the legendary Mountain course.

This is a chance to share the fast and furious action as the TT celebrates 100 years of racing on the Mountain. Not only will the event feature the usual mix of Superbikes, Supersports, Superstocks and Sidecars, there will also be star-studded celebrations of the Centenary as well as the TT Zero race for electric bikes.

A TT VIP Club hospitality ticket gives you exclusive access to the TT VIP Club at the heart of the action. The VIP Club Hospitality Package comes with all-day access to the Hospitality Suite, including a complementary bar open during licensing hours, breakfast served until 10am and a gourmet hot and cold buffet lunch prepared by first class chefs – a great way to enjoy a day’s racing on the Isle of Man.

The package also offers great views of the racing, including reserved Grandstand seats, competitions and a gift pack with official merchandise, the official TT programme, a race guide and an ear-piece radio tuned to Manx Radio’s ‘Radio TT’, the official TT radio station.

Hospitality ticket holders are also treated to exclusive interviews with the top three TT riders from each race, as well as rubbing shoulders with some of the celebrities and ex-riders who attend.

In 2010, Jorge Lorenzo, Angel Nieto, Keith Flint from the Prodigy and Carl Fogarty were all spotted in the VIP area and many motorcycling legends and VIPs are expected to attend in 2011, including commentator Murray Walker OBE who will be on hand as part of the Mountain course Centenary celebrations.

The VIP Club Hospitality packages are available for each of the four race days at the 2011 TT Races – June 4, 6, 8 and 10.

Or you could opt for Grandstand seats, giving you a full day at the races from as little as £25. Your ticket gives you access to the iconic Grandstand, with unrivalled views of the start/finish line, the awesome Glencrutchery Road, where speeds exceed 170mph, the pit lane and the podium.

All the amenities you could need are nearby, there are plenty of shops to pick up food, drink and essential TT memorabilia, plus the Grandstand is right next to the TT Paddock, so you can catch a glimpse of the teams at work and maybe meet a rider or two.
