The historic event attracted 60,000 visitors, and impressively 23 per cent of those were first time visitors to the TT races.

Adrian Earnshaw, Minister for Tourism and Leisure said, "I am delighted with what has been achieved in 2007 and look forward to seeing more new teams, high profile riders lining up in 2008. The TT is very much on the up and we are working with our partners and the motorcycle industry to successfully launch the event into its second century in June."

In an effort to pull in younger race fans who will be the future of the sport and the event, the Department of Tourism and Leisure has kicked off an advertising campaign featuring the 'TT Young Guns', including up and coming Isle of Man rider, and current Irish Champion, Conor Cummins.
