The Isle of Man Motor Museum is marking the 100th Tourist Trophy Meeting being held in 2019 with a special new exhibition.

To celebrate the milestone, the team at the Isle of Man Motor Museum in Jurby has launched a new exhibition featuring a motorcycle from each year of racing.

Beginning in 1907, the TT has run every year apart from during the two World Wars and a foot and mouth outbreak in the UK in 2001.

Darren Cunningham, who established the museum with father Denis, says the unique display is a must for all bike fans.

'We are bringing together a display featuring one motorcycle from each year the TT was held. It will be a unique collection of 100 bikes celebrating all types of motorcycling from TT winning race bikes to iconic road machines and agile off-road motorcycles — all displayed in chronological order so visitors can see how these incredible machines evolved through the decades.'

Based at a specially designed premises on the former RAF Jurby site, the museum is a privately funded exhibition of more than 500 vehicles including unique one-offs and prototypes, celebrity and royalty cars, road and race-winning motorcycles.

The Museum showcases more than 300 motorcycles from the earliest days of motoring with a 1902 Clement right through to the 2009 winner of the first electric TT by way of Nortons, Sunbeams, Velocettes, BMWs, Kawasaki’s, Hondas and many more.

Darren and Denis have spent more than 35 years assembling and lovingly restoring their collection of classic vehicles.

Other new displays for 2019 include a special showcase of original vehicles, factory production fittings and memorabilia celebrating local firm Peel Engineering, the manufacturer of the world’s smallest production car, the Peel P50.

Darren added: 'With new displays for 2019, this is a very exciting time for all of the team at the Isle of Man Motor Museum. There is so much to see here, we have something for everyone and we are looking forward to the new season beginning at Easter. We are privileged to also showcase vehicles owned by local enthusiasts that are usually hidden away from public view.'
