Senior

The Senior class represents the golden age of motorcycle racing from the 1950’s and 60’s with exotic Italian multi cylinder machines pitted against the British single cylinder bikes along with a smattering of early Japanese models.

These 500cc bikes are tested to their limits over four laps of the torturous TT Mountain Course in a race where reliability is often more important than sheer speed.
