Another busy season of action-packed road racing has been promised at the Isle of Man's Billown circuit as organisers Southern 100 Racing unveil their 2011 schedule.

With some six months until racing at Billown gets under way, the club has been able to announce the dates for all three of next year's planned meetings on the 4.25-mile road course.

The Pre TT Classic Road Races will open the TT festival on May 27 and continue on May 28, concluding with the main race day on May 30. The following day the Prize Presentation and Concours D'Elegance will take place in Castletown Square.

The Post TT Road Races take place on June 11 and will bring the curtain down on the 2011 TT Festival.

The 56th running of the Southern 100 International Road Races starts on July 11 and continues in the evening on July 12 and 13 before concluding on Championship Day, July 14.

The Southern 100 Prize Presentation takes place in Castletown Square on the Thursday evening and is a unique and spectacular event in its own right, giving fans and enthusiasts to opportunity to acknowledge and applaud the riders and celebrate the Solo & Sidecar Champions achievements.

Club Chairman Phil Taubman said:

“After a safe and successful year with the three road races on the Billown Course, it is pleasing to be able to finalise the dates for 2011, which now lets the organisers progress their plans for the year ahead.”

“As Chairman, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my committee for all the hard work they have put in to ensure the races on the Billown Course are as safe as possible.”

“As organisers we are also extremely grateful to all the volunteer marshals and officials who give up so much of their free time during the practices and races for each of the meetings held annually. We also appreciate the help and courtesy afforded to us by the residents and landowners around the 4.25-mile course.”

“Of course without the continued support we receive from the competitors, their sponsors and supporters it would not be possible to plan and organise the meeting we run each year. We all have one aim and that is to promote, organise and run safe and enjoyable events on the Billown Course.”
