Isle of Man TT 2023: preview

The Isle of Man TT is the ultimate seat of your pants thrill ride. It's an event that garners the utmost respect of dyed-in-the-wool adrenaline junkies the world over. Comprising 10 race events, plus qualifying and practice sessions, across a hazy fortnight on The Rock, the 2023 TT will be the 102nd running of this uniquely glorious, notorious event.

23-time TT winner John McGuinness, 21-time winner Michael Dunlop and the outright lap record-holder Peter Hickman are among the top 20 seeds. Returning riders David Johnson and Josh Brookes are sure to receive a rapturous reception as they prepare to stare down the 37-mile Snaefell Mountain Course again.

A fleet of extensively modified, 1000cc beasts will battle it out in the 6-lap Superbike class, the flagship contest of the TT, but almost equally pacey are the Supersport (4 laps) and Superstock (4 laps) events, featuring extensively modified 600cc four-cylinder and 675cc three-cylinder bikes, and more subtly modified 1000cc monsters, respectively.

The Supertwin (4 laps) event, featuring twin-cylinder 700cc machines being ridden by some of the best talent at the TT is not to be missed either, while the madcap three-wheeled Sidecar (3 laps) event really has to be seen to be believed.
