Bike arrivals for Southern 100 increase
25th July, 2012
The number of bikes and riders who made the journey to this year’s Southern 100 International Road Races increased by 37 per cent compared to last year’s event.
The ever popular road races, which take place in July each year, are to be screened on British Eurosport 2 shortly.
Steam Packet chief executive Mark Woodward said: ‘Following on from the 4.3 per cent increase in the number of motorcycles visiting this year’s TT – the highest for a decade, apart from the centenary TT in 2007 – this is more good news for road racing in the Isle of Man.’
