2020 Isle of Man TT Schedule

The 2020 Isle of Man TT Schedule has been released and we have all the important dates and times to help you plan your trip, or if you can’t make it to the island at least you will know what time to tune into Manx Radio to ensure you don’t miss a thing.

Two things of note though.  The first may actually benefit you if you are heading over for practice week from Dublin – the first scheduled practices are now on the Sunday of Practice week. Traditionally the first day of practice was Saturday, however the first 2020  session will now be on Sunday 31st May afternoon – so if you are on that Dublin sailing think sharp – get off the boat and you will hopefully catch some Sunday qualifying.

Secondly – and sadly – there will be no TT Zero qualifying or racing in 2020 and 2021.  The class has been dropped for two years, allegedly to ‘allow development’.  TT Zero has been running for a decade and the electric machines from Mugen are responsible for a 121.824mph lap.  I get that the entry is low and also that the Mugen will win, but still, TT Zero showed innovation and look at that lap time!  I fully understand that many argue passionately that a TT Zero win shouldn’t really be counted as a TT win.  I am all for opinions, but that opinion is one I’ll just have to disagree with. It may ‘only‘ be 1 lap – but that one lap is potentially 120+mph and considering the lap size of 37 miles then it really isn’t to be sniffed at.  That one lap is still more than most full length Irish and Northern Irish National races.  Hopefully come 2022 more teams will be in the field, on the track and ready to race!

Finally – this schedule is subject to change and given the weather we have had over the last couple of years this schedule will change.  At the time make sure to follow : 

And of course don’t forget the TBNI Road Racing Calendar – that will keep you up to date with all the Irish / Northern Ireland and Manx Road Racing Schedules.
