ISLE OF MAN – Officials with the Isle of Man TT have announced two sponsorship extensions.
PokerStars has confirmed a new new multi-year sponsorship with the Isle of Man Government Department of Economic Development to be the ‘Official Gaming Partner’ of the TT Races.
PokerStars is part of The Rational Group, the Isle of Man based e-gaming company, which operates leading online brands including PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker. PokerStars has sponsored the TT races since 2007 and will continue to be the title sponsor of the PokerStars Senior TT race, the most prestigious individual event in the series of competitions.
This new sponsorship agreement includes, for the first time, a closing party to be held on Douglas Promenade on June 7, immediately following the PokerStars Senior TT race. The party is designed to cater to local residents and is open to the general public at no charge.
In addition to access to the traditional carnival rides and local vendors (including the famous Bushy’s Beer Tent), the party will feature the presentation of the TT race winners, live music, fireworks and local favourites “The Purple Helmets.”
Motul, Europe’s leading specialist in the field of motorcycle lubricants and lubrication, has also renewed its sponsorship of the Isle of Man TT
Named as Official Lubricants Partner to the Isle of Man TT fueled by Monster Energy, Motul will be present at the spiritual home of motorcycles and their riders to once again enjoy the mythology, history and excitement of the event.
Testing on the 37.73 mile public road course began on May 25, and the 100+ competitors have been putting themselves through their paces on the scenic Isle of Man, which lies in the Irish Sea between the North West coast of England and Northern Ireland. This year, Motul’s iconic red and white colours will be seen on two specific corners – Quarter Bridge and Gooseneck.
