A unique event and the first time we have worked with the “Circuit of Mann” team to create a “500” event on the famous motorcycling island. We have a great venue and partner for this truly exceptional adventure.
The team has worked hard to make this event possible in Isle of Man and riders are in for a real treat. There are big days in the saddle, some challenging navigation and some more variable terrain.
You’ll have to watch out for Wallaby’s running wild in the forest. Navigation will be key to this event and we run a section through the mountain part of the Isle of Man TT course – so this is a course that provides a wide variety of riding over two brilliant days.
Our hosts at the camp site have all the bases covered for our briefing room and for the catering on the event.
I can’t wait for this one – it is going to be brilliant. See you there 😉
Bikes and Tyres
The “500” series of event have been specifically designed for the bigger adventure bikes and the IOM 500 course has been created with this in mind. The course is rideable on road tyres with care and is 100% suitable for dual sport tyres. The organisation team will have ridden all the course prior to the event to check its suitability.
Fuel and Range
The IOM 500 is run through the back roads and trails and the bikes taking part will need a range of 100km (60 miles) on a single tank of fuel. Most of the big adventure bikes are capable of this. All fuel stops will be at commercial filling stations and marked on the roadbook.
These will be available to hire from RallyMoto – please request this on your entry form.
Camping is included in the entry fee for the IOM 500. In addition to this there is local accommodation available. Arriving on the Friday recommended.
The Entry fee includes a meal on the Saturday evening and also on the Sunday evening as part of the entry fee. Additional places can be ordered on the entry form. Once out on the course riders will have to be self sufficient and should carry water and food. There will be a few opportunities to buy food en-route.
Finishers medals will be issued to all riders. This is a 100% navigation event and the top twenty riders that adhere most accurately to the course will receive a gold medal, the next 20 riders a silver and the remaining riders a bronze medal. Riders using the GPX route will receive a bronze medal on completing the course.
