ISLE OF MAN GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT INCREASES HOSPITALITY PROGRAMME

27th November 2010
- All TT Grandstand and Hospitality tickets available from official Travel Agency Regency Travel

The Isle of Man Department of Economic Development has increased the Official Hospitality capacity for the 2011 TT Races due to the popularity of the VIP packages. There will now be 300 places available on each of the four race days - an increase of 100 places on the 2010 level.

The VIP Club Hospitality only packages are priced at £240 plus VAT per guest, with guests encouraged to book their tickets before 1st January 2011 to take advantage of the lower VAT rate. The deal grants exclusive access to the TT VIP Club where people can entertain their guests at the heart of the world famous race. The TT VIP Club is located trackside in Noble’s Park, next to Glencrutchery road, which features the start/finish and return lane and overlooks the winners enclosure.

The VIP Club Hospitality Package offers the guests all day access to the Hospitality Suite. This includes a complementary bar open during licensing hours, breakfast served until 10am and a gourmet hot and cold buffet lunch prepared by first class chefs. Tickets can be purchased individually or booked as tables of eight.

The package also offers reserved grandstand seating; a bird’s eye view from the hospitality suite roof-top, access to the TT paddock, exclusive rider appearances and race day competitions with money can’t buy prizes. Guests will also receive a special souvenir TT gift pack that includes 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.

VIP guests are also treated to seeing the top 3 TT riders from each race in the hospitality area shortly after each race as well as hearing their post race thoughts and the views of some of the celebrities and ex riders. Last year Jorge Lorenzo, Angel Nieto, Danny John Jules, Keith Flint from the Prodigy and Carl Fogarty were all spotted in the VIP area. A large number of Motorcycling legends and VIP’s 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 Hospitality packages are available for each of the four race days at the 2011 TT Races. Saturday 4th June sees the prestigious TT Superbike Race and the first Sidecar Race, Monday 6th June features the Royal London 360 Superstock Race and the first Monster Energy Supersport Race. The second Monster Energy Supersport and second Sidecar Races are scheduled to take place on Wednesday 8th June along with the clean emissions TT Zero Race and the week finishes on Friday 10th June with the PokerStars Senior Race, ‘Milestones of the Mountain’ Centenary Parade and Yamaha’s 50th Anniversary Parade.

Grandstand tickets are also now available with seats priced at £30 for the Superbike and PokerStars Senior TT and £25 for the other race days. Tickets for exclusive TT hospitality as part of the promenade entertainment will also shortly be available, while there are also plans for a prestigious Black Tie dinner as part of the Centenary celebrations.

The 2011 TT VIP packages are now available direct from Regency Travel, the Official TT Races Travel Partner. Regency Travel is now marketing hospitality only tickets as well as VIP travel and accommodation.

Many local and international businesses are using the event to entertain clients and incentivise staff and we are also seeing a lot of individuals buying the tickets to make their TT experience truly memorable. “
