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.
Prize Fund for Superbike TT Race & Sidecar TT Race 1 :
£18,000 for a clean race win from start to finish might seem like a decent payout to many but think about the price of the bike, the transport, accomodation, fuel, tyres, mechanical upkeep… There’s not going to be too much left over for beers – and think of coming 20th – that’s an amazing achievement in its own right! The £300 would not even cover the ferry!
Anyway as I say it is all about the prestige and these guys / girls deserve every bit of accolation and credit they get – they are at the absolute top of their game and to do it for the pay scale above really shows how dedicated these people are!
