TT pumped £19 million into Manx economy

VISITORS at this year's TT Races pumped £19 million into the Manx economy, the first TT-specific figures reveal. The first-ever survey focusing solely on the TT, carried out by the economic affairs division of the Treasury, showed that 30,787 people visited the Island for the TT this year, spending an average of £620 on the trip.

There have never been such figures specifically looking at the TT before, so tourism bosses cannot say for sure whether the number of visitors was up or down on last year. More here.
