2015 Isle of Man TT Schedule

2015 Isle of Man TT Schedule | Dates & Times
21-time Isle of Man TT winner John McGuinness

The scheduling is set for the 2015 Isle of Man TT as riders seek domination on the iconic 37.73-mile Snaefell Mountain Course during the TT’s 104th edition.

All eyes will be on John McGuinness as the 21-time TT winner looks to break the record held by the late Joey Dunlop (26), and 11-time TT winner Michael Dunlop, the nephew of Joey Dunlop.

McGuinness returns on Honda CBR machinery, but Dunlop has once again switched manufacturers; unlike his run at the 2014 TT aboard BMW S1000RR in the superbike races, Michael will pilot Milwaukee 2015 Yamaha YZF-R1 motorcycles in the superbike classes, and YZF-R6 machinery in the supersport classes. It should be noted that Michael Dunlop won his first TT in 2009 aboard a Yamaha YZF-R6 (Supersport TT).

Another rider to watch is Bruce Anstey, who piloted his Valvoline Honda CBR1000RR to a new outright lap record of 132.298 mph during the Dainese TT, beating the previous record held since 2009 by McGuinness (131.671 mph).

And don’t forget about the American Mark Miller, who we hope to see running up front. Regardless of the Erik Buell Racing shutdown, Miller returns on the Splitlath EBR1190RS, which he earned 42nd with during last year’s Senior TT.

The Joe Rocket sponsored Miller is the fastest American to lap the Snaefell Mountain Course (125.507mph), and has never missed a year of racing since his 2006 TT debut. He also won the TT Zero race in 2010, finishing second in 2011 and third in 2012 and, having taken four top twenty finishes, he now has 19 replicas to his name.

This year’s IOM TT Schedule begins May 30 with practice and qualifying, and concludes with the Senior TT race on Friday, June 12.
