T.T. Race Sponsors announced

Author: Department of Tourism and Leisure
Posted on: Monday, Apr 18 2005

The Manx Government’s Department of Tourism and Leisure has announced that negotiations have been completed in respect of four major sponsorships for this year’s T.T. Races. All the companies involved have sponsored events at the meeting previously.

Tourism Minister David Cretney said:

“These are Isle of Man-based organisations which are maintaining their association with the T.T. It shows not only the commitment of all areas of Manx life to the races but reinforces our belief that the T.T. is a highly marketable commodity. We thank them for their continued involvement and assure our sponsors that we appreciate the role they are playing in the continued success of the T.T.”

The Hilton Hotel and Casino is sponsoring the two sidecar events, both of which are over three laps. Sidecar Race A is on the opening race day of the meeting, Saturday 4th June, followed by Race B on Wednesday 8th June.

Saturday’s six lap Superbike event is sponsored by Duke Marketing while Scottish Life International gives its name to the Superstock Race over three laps on the Monday. Fourth sponsor to be confirmed is the Steam Packet Company, which is supporting the four lap Supersport Junior B Race on the Wednesday.

Mr Cretney confirmed that discussions were continuing regarding sponsorship for the two remaining events – the Supersport Race A on Monday and the Senior TT which brings down the curtain on the 2005 T.T. Meeting on the Friday.
