The Isle of Wight TT coming in 2021!
The Isle of Wight TT / Diamond Races motorcycling race coming to the Island in 2021, which is hoping to be as popular as the famous Isle of Man TT.
Riders will battle it out in a time trial format at speeds of up to 210mph in the ‘Diamond Races Isle of Wight’, which will take place on a 12.4-mile road course through villages such as Chale, Shorwell and Brighstone in October 2021. The circuit will challenge competitors through technical, winding sections as well as a 5-mile fast coastal stretch along the iconic Military Road.
The Diamond Races is an all-new motorcycle road racing festival, featuring some of the top names in the sport and expected to attract around 50,000 people, extending the Island’s summer season.
Paul Sandford, CEO and Co-Founder of the Diamond Races, says:
“As an Isle of Wight local resident, I am very excited to welcome motorsport fans from across the globe to this beautiful island, for what is sure to be an unforgettable weekend of racing action and entertainment for the whole family.
“The Diamond Races is the culmination of years of hard work, dedication and planning by the whole team, and we’re very lucky to have the best of the best involved with its setup. No stone is being left unturned in striving to deliver a spectacular event which we have every reason to believe will be a regular back-stop to the island’s tourist season and put the Isle of Wight on the international motorcycle road racing map”.
The final race date is yet to be confirmed and will be dependent on the end of the British Superbike championship in 2021. TV coverage is expected but negotiations are still underway.
