Global audience of TT of 30 million

A worldwide audience of 30 million people tuned in to coverage of the TT last year.

The figure released yesterday (28 Feb) by the Department of Economic Development, shows growth in the global television audience of 2.4%, an additional 700,000 viewers compared with 2015.

Research was commissioned from independent broadcast viewer analyst Kantar Media, and will help drive-up advertising sales.

Digital media also grew, with more than 8 million views notched up on the official Isle of Man TT YouTube channel, where an onboard footage of Michael Dunlop's record-breaking Superbike lap was viewed 1.6 million times alone.

The TT's official Facebook page gained an additional 200,000 followers in 2016, 23% up on the previous year.

Manx Radio's TT commentary available online worldwide, attracted more than 350,000 unique connections during TT fortnight.
