Island racing brings crowd benefits

With the Isle of Man synonymous with racing, FON spoke to David Kay, general manager of Manx Petroleums about the company’s involvement in the TT and the Manx Grand Prix.

“When the TT races take place, most competitors run bikes on super unleaded from the forecourts,” said David.

“During events, visitor numbers and fuel demand rise significantly – in addition to competitors, around 12,000 extra bikes arrive on the island making roads very busy. To accommodate, we change our business hours, starting earlier to deliver to retail sites before spectators start riding around thus ensuring trucks are off the road as fast as possible.”
