TT numbers down, spending up

Visitor figures published

Fewer people visited the TT this year - but those who did come spent more.

Just over 44,000 came for the world-famous road races in 2018.

This year's figure is a drop of 1.5% on the year before - but visitor numbers are 4.6% up from when numbers fell two years ago.

Visitors spent just over £37 million this year.

That amounts to about £886 per person, per trip to the Isle of Man.

The busiest day of the TT was, unsurprisingly, Mad Sunday, when 26,000 extra people were on the Island enjoying the unprecedented Manx sunshine.
