Isle of Man 2017

So I have been thinking for a while now that I want to go see the Isle of Man races.

I have been doing a bit of research on trying to plan for a 2017 trip.

Has anyone been there?
What advice, leads, insights can you give?

Thanks..

Here's a mouthwatering vid from 2015..

Just one day?
What gives.

Ideally I would like to be there both weeks but most likely just race week.

Man, I would pay good money to be the monkey on a sidecar rig.

@jobes1 - What info have you found? I am also starting to plan a trip for 2017. I have found that there are homestays and glamping, they both look like viable options. What information have you found out? Care to share? Thanks bro.

My fiance wants to go for our Honey Moon. (She's a keeper). I have seen a few places in the 1400-1800 Euro per week range but you have to stay both weeks. Considering it for next year.

These videos just blow me away every time I watch one. So fast and so much endurance needed to push that hard to the end.
