We are thinking of doing the Southern 100 in the Isle of Man next year and could do with some advice from anyone who has done it.
Is it any cheaper (ferry wise) than the TT?
Are there less coppers about (for hooning over the mountain and on other unrestricted roads on the Island)?
Any advice on campsites close to (walking distance) a few pubs etc.
Vantage points to watch the racing from?
Booking advice for ferry's etc.
Any other advice?
We have done the TT 3 times now over the last 23 years and are going to give the Island one more go before we permanently confine it to the "Been there done that" file. We thought of doing the Manx but the Southern 100 sounds as if it is less geared around taking every single penny from your wallet as the TT is.
Cheap hotels in the IOM? The last one we stayed in, in '89 was a guest house at £25 a night each for 4 of us in one room with a broken telly and flock wallpaper.
More info on cheap hotels would be great especially if they are walking distance to a town/village with pubs!
