2023 Senior Race Moved to Saturday

The biggest changes in recent memory are, subject to local public consultation around road closures, to be introduced for the 2023 TT, which will see the Senior TT race moved to a Saturday.

With the launch of an expanded race programme that sees more race days, more races and more opportunities to see that racing.

A statement from DfE said: ‘Designed following feedback from thousands of TT fans, the 2023 schedule proposes the number of race days increase from four to six and the total number of races increase from eight to ten with the introduction of a second race for the Superstock and Supertwin classes.

‘With some careful programming and a new, streamlined look to qualifying, the proposed schedule would see no increase in the duration of the iconic event. Instead, the TT will start and finish a day later than usual, allowing racing to take place on two weekends and utilising two bank holidays – the UK bank holiday and the Isle of Man bank holiday.’

With clear benefits for fans and the hard-hit tourism industry, the new schedule is also expected to better complement the island’s existing infrastructure. Its introduction will coincide with the arrival of the new Manxman vessel for the Steam Packet, increasing travel capacity to-and-from the Island, and allowing for more fans to visit the fabled races.
