SeniorThe 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.
