Trade visitors need to act swiftly if they want to take advantage of remaining corporate hospitality opportunities at the 2013 Isle of Man TT, Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix.

The 1000-seat Glencrutchery Road TT grandstand posted sold-out notices for all four race days in July of last year and tickets for the official Fanzone grandstands around the course at Creg Ny Baa (400 seats), Ballacrye (200 seats), Crosby Jump (200 seats), and the viewing platform at Rhencullen (100-person capacity), are all now also seeing limited availability on several days. The Glencrutchery Road grandstand has also sold all available tickets for the final qualifying session.

Due to demand, TT organisers are now adding another 280-seat Fanzone grandstand to be situated at the end of the competitors’ return road in Nobles Park, with views along the Glencrutchery Road start-finish straight. This will open in time for the final two qualifying sessions on 30-31 May, with the Creg Ny Baa grandstand also opening two days earlier than originally advertised. Tickets will go on sale on 18 February.

The Isle of Man Government Department of Economic of Development has also upgraded its official VIP hospitality offering for 2013, introducing a new 500-capacity luxury unit both for the TT and the inaugural Classic TT, which forms part of the Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling later on this year. This facility features a glass-fronted structure offering views of the riders as they finish.

Interest in TT VIP hospitality has been considerable and, despite the 65 per cent increase in capacity for 2013, Senior race day is already sold out with the Wednesday race day packages close to a sell-out. Packages for the Saturday and Monday race days are also selling quickly.

The new unit will play host to a number of additional events during this year’s TT and Classic TT, including a TT Preview Night on 31 May and a MotoGP Mad Sunday Lunch on 2 June. Former World Superbike champion Neil Hodgson is hosting both events with only a limited number of tickets still remaining.

Tickets are also selling well for the two Classic TT race days, with significant interest in both Grandstand seats and VIP hospitality packages. The venue will also feature a Classic TT themed party on 24 August and a TT Heroes Dinner on 25 August during the Classic TT weekend immediately prior to the Manx Grand Prix.
