The Isle of Man TT races are nearly as old as motorcycling itself. Racing began on the near forty mile mountain course in 1907, and competition today is as fierce as it ever was, with factory teams and the greatest riders in the world seeking the prestige of victory and legendary status. The blue riband opening event of August’s Festival of Motorcycling on the Island is the Classic TT.
In 2020, the brand new Classic TT International Motorcycle Auction gives the thousands of fans who make the pilgrimage to the spiritual home of motorcycle road racing yet another reason to visit the Island in person, or now, online. Official event partners Charterhouse Auctions are proud to be holding this brilliant, official new event in the TT grandstand and paddock complex in Douglas over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
No matter where you are in the world, this truly international event gives fans, collectors and motorcyclists the opportunity to sell, bid and buy classic and racing machinery, or to just enjoy the unique atmosphere, tension and excitement of a live international auction. The catalogue already features exotic and rare examples of factory race machinery, and some of the most desirable classic bikes ever made, along with fascinating memorabilia reflecting over a century of TT history, and counting.
Whether you are looking for one of the rarest, record breaking factory bikes ever made with the best possible provenance, a restoration project for a few hundred pounds, or the bike you always promised yourself, make one of the soundest investments available and enjoy this year’s Classic TT International Motorcycle Auction. You can choose to join us on the Island and immerse yourself in the most intimate and compelling Classic Motorcycle Festival on earth, or visit online from anywhere in the world. We are delighted to welcome you to this wonderful new event.
