Bringing international motorcycle road racing to the Isle of Wight


James Kaye has a vision to bring international motorcycle racing to closed public roads on the Isle of Wight.

Changes to UK law in 2008 made it possible for public highways to be closed to allow motor racing events to take place. Most people know that the Isle of Man has hosted the world-famous TT Races for more than 100 years. There’s no reason why this could not succeed on the Isle of Wight.

“We’ve built important relationships within the world of motorcycle racing and we are starting the process of building new relationships with the residents, business and organisations that will be affected by the event, commented James.

“I firmly believe that the benefits to the Island will far outweigh any temporary inconvenience. My organising team is determined to place the Isle of Wight on to the international motor sport map.”


Large events of any type will raise any number of questions. Here the organisers set out the main issues that have been raised with answers.

James Kaye is a resident of the Isle of Wight and has enjoyed a long and successful career in motor racing. He is a two-time winner of the British Touring Car Championship.

Our priority is to engage with Island residents, organisations and businesses. To explain what IWRR is all about and to take onboard their feedback and concerns.
