Fantastic shots! This event is definitely on my ''to visit list''!! Is it easy to get there informations about the best spotting areas or are these places unshared secrets?

With over 37 miles of track, you have plenty of scope for photos. I've been going 4 years and trying new spots each year although with the media pass it does give you access to quite a number of "Restricted Areas" where the public aren't allowed. That said, even without a pass theres loads of great places to take photos.
Its well worth a visit if you can.

Fantastic shots!
This event is on my bucket list. How hard is it to find a place to stay for the week on the island?

Theres various options available, but its always best to get in early. If you're into camping theres loads of camp sites with tents supplied in or around Douglas or further out. If your carrying loads of expensive camera gear you may not fancy that. Theres self catering options with small cottages available and a few B&B guesthouses. We have actually stayed in Homestay accommodation this last few years which is an IOM Government scheme which encourages householders to open their own properties for the 2 weeks of the TT to take in visitors on either bed only or bed and breakfast basis. We've stayed in the same location this last 2 years with a retired couple near Douglas and its been perfect. If you register an interest, they release details of available properties throughout the year. They'll send you an email alert when something becomes available. Best get in quick though as the properties go very quick.

I am in awe of the event and delighted by your excellent captures. Please tell me where I can see more. The leaned over and airborne at speed sends a chill down my spine. I thank you for that : )

I wonder how the landing went. The last time I got airborne (ST1100) I got a pretty good wiggle out of it.

All went smoothly. These guys are averaging over 130 miles per hour over 37 miles of public roads so a lot of the time they will have one or both wheels off the ground. Theres parts of the circuit they will touch 200mph.
