This is how the revamped race schedule looks for TT 2023
A raft of major new changes have been announced for the Isle of Man TT over the next few years, including an increased race programme from 2023.
The changes also include live streaming of the event from 2022, plus changes to the Lightweight and Sidecar classes.
In 2023, the blue riband Senior TT will switch to its own Saturday slot, bringing the festival to a climactic close.
Race days will also increase from four to six from 2023, when a second race for the Superstock and Supertwin classes will be added to the schedule. This will also offer riders a greater chance of equalling or bettering Yorkshireman Ian Hutchinson's record of five solo victories in a week, set in 2010.
Qualifying will run from Monday, May 29 to Friday, June 2, featuring an afternoon and evening session on the Monday, and an afternoon session on the Friday. Evening sessions will run as normal on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of practice week.
