In addition to the live broadcast by Manx Radio, there’s going to be video coverage of the iconic road race throughout the two weeks of practice, qualifying and racing.
Cameras will be positioned around the Isle of Man Mountain Circuit and will be joined by two helicopters, which’ll help to shoot the raw footage for the new online live stream, the traditional TV highlights, in addition to some extra delights including the TT preview show, an annual documentary and a new series that will follow top teams and riders and take a look behind the scenes at the TT.
There’re also going to be some big changes to the way things are run at the historic road race. The 2022 Isle of Man TT will see the debut of a new Supertwins category – a race which is reserved for twin-cylinder motorcycles up to 700cc, and replaces the outgoing Lightweight category. There’re changes for the sidecars, too. They’ll be able to start using parallel twin-cylinder engines of up to 900cc.
That’s not all. There’re also some changes to the race schedule. Qualifying will take place over six days, with the first session starting on Sunday afternoon. It’ll then return to its normal evening time slot for four nights, starting on Monday, May 30. The final session will take place on Friday afternoon, in an effort to give the racers more time to prepare before the racing begins. On the morning of race days there will be a single warm-up lap.
The racing programme will be expanded for 2023. The number of race days will increase from four to six, while races will increase from eight to 10 (with more Superstock and SuperTwins categories).
