Baronbolton and I are trying to start to plan an event for some friends to come over from the States and visit the TT. We spent 10 months riding through the States last year and met so many wonderful people that would love to go to the TT. We want to get something underway to say thank you for all the kindness and generosity we received. For now we are trying to get the inside line.
Anything, anybody can tell us, about:
days to go
ferries to catch
would be greatly appreciated. We need to provide our friends with an organised schedule of events so they can say yay or nay.
Ferry. You have to use these. Book early, and start saving!
Campsite. I stayed at Signpost Corner, which is towards the end of the lap. If you're early, you get a level pitch. It's within easy walking distance of Douglas. This is a good general resource.
I imagine neither you nor your guests will want to miss Mad Sunday, so it might be an idea to go Wed. to Wed. All the little towns are worth visiting. Can't think of much else, it was certainly well worth going.
At the moment The Steam Racket are just taking £20 deposits, so there is a good chance you may get the crossings you want. Expect to pay around £200 return for bike and rider, and approx £360 for a van, there are a number of campsites on the Island so if you get over early in TT fortnight you should have no problem, the one at Peel looks good, what are your transport details?
Good luck trying a group trip I and friends have enough problems booking individually.
A group of us go over most years,we book the ferry on the last day we leave for the next year and still can`t get what we want,Douglas football club is very good ,close to the grandstand,walking distance to Douglas town centre and they must have v.good facilitys in the club house,it cost in 2010 £10 per tent per night.
We allways stay here http://www.glenloughcampsite.com/ 2010 prices £7 per tent per night,again good facilitys tent on site with live bands all race week,and nice pubs within walking distance,it`s a bus ride into Douglas.
We try and take in a few days of practice week all race week and sometimes we manage the southern 100 on the last weekend,in all about 12 days.
There are companys that will rent you tents and camp beds.The atmosphere is fantastic,there is nothing like it.
