Isle of Man TT Races 2018 Winners’ Payouts

2018 Isle of Man TT Race Winners’ Payout – One of the most popular posts of the last year on this blog was the Isle of Man TT – Race Winners Payout so with the start of the Road Racing Season less that two weeks away from and TT fever starting to build I thought I would update the post for 2018 – and add a little more information to cover more than just the TT Senior Race.

But one of the most discussed topics is how much do these guys / girls get for winning the TT?  You might be surprised, but one thing that is very important; for the majority – if not all the competitiors – it isn’t about the cash – it’s about the prestige.

Until now…
