SOUTHERN 100

A RACE IS BORN

First run-on Thursday 14th July 1955, the three race Southern 100 Road Races were described by certain media of the day as ambitious for a first ever meeting and attracted seventy-three entries. The Southern now attracts over 300 entries each year.

Taking its name from the premier 500cc event, which was held over 100 miles, the Southern soon gained National Status, then an International event from 2007and today it is one of the most popular events on the road-racing calendar.

From its inception, the Southern 100 has provided the keenest competition among some  of the best-known names in British racing, including multi world champions Phil Read,  Brian Reid and Joey Dunlop and Sidecar champions Charlie Freeman, Steve Webster  Klaus Klaffenbock, Tim Reeves and the Birchall brothers. And in recent years, riders’ names have read like the  ‘who’s-who’ of the road-racing scene pitting their skills against the 4.25-mile Billown public road course. Names such as Ian Lougher, Jason Griffiths, Phillip McCallen, Robert Dunlop, Dave Leach and more recently Guy Martin, Michael Dunlop, and Dean Harrison, along with Chris Vincent, Lowry Burton, Dave Molyneux, Nick Crowe, and Ian Bell in the sidecars – such is the attraction to what has become known over the intervening 65 years as ‘the friendly races’.

TRAVEL & ACCOMMODATION

Our travel and accommodation partner Duke Travel can supply accommodation to suit all needs together with ferry and air travel packages

The Isle of Man is easily accessible by ferry and plane from key regional ports across the UK and Ireland. The ferry company which operates between the North West of England and the East Coast of Ireland is the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company with regular services between Liverpool, Heysham, Dublin and Belfast during the summer months.

The Isle of Man is also well served by key airports including London Gatwick, Manchester and Dublin meaning that our international visitors have a selection of airports to choose from when making their travel plans. Flying is often seen as an attractive alternative to travelling by ferry and is quick and convenient with flight times averaging between 30 and 60 minutes from the UK and Ireland.

UK Residents

The Isle of Man and the UK have a reciprocal healthcare agreement in place which ensures that Isle of Man residents visiting the UK (and UK residents visiting the Isle of Man) have the assurance of receiving urgent healthcare which is required before returning home (excluding prescription and dental charges, which will be chargeable).

 

Although treatment is free, repatriation (return travel to someone’s home country) has never been included as part of the reciprocal agreement and this remains the case.

 

Because of this, all UK residents who travel to the Isle of Man (including on business) should ensure that they have adequate insurance in place in the event of repatriation being required, as this can be a considerable expense ranging from the purchase of a ferry ticket to the hire of a private Air Ambulance, which can be extremely costly.

Travelling from outside the UK

If you’re travelling to the Island from outside of the UK, and therefore responsible for all your own healthcare costs whilst in the Island, you will need to make arrangements for full healthcare cover for the duration of your stay in the Isle of Man.

 

It is therefore extremely important that you take out adequate insurance for all trips to the Isle of Man to cover both medical treatment and repatriation to your home country. If you require medical treatment or repatriation and are uninsured, the Isle of Man Government is not able to help and you can expect to have to pay the full cost of treatment and travel home, which can run into tens of thousands of pounds depending on where you live.

 

The vital importance of having adequate insurance in place for visits to the Isle of Man cannot be overstated.  If you required medical treatment or repatriation without having the correct insurance cover, the Isle of Man Government would be unable to act or offer financial assistance, nor would the government of your home country (including the UK for repatriation).

 

It is strongly recommended that you take out adequate insurance cover and make your specific needs clear to the insurance provider, remembering to read your policy documentation before travel. 

Repatriation Cost

The actual costs would depend on many variables, such as the distance of the journey, whether an Air Ambulance was required and what specialist equipment and medical staff may be necessary – plus the nature of your condition.

 

It is not uncommon for repatriation by Air Ambulance to reach sums of £5,000 just for the Isle of Man to UK, and the cost would be considerably more to other countries.

 

The Isle of Man is not part of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA), which is where the EHIC (formerly Form E111) scheme operates. EU/EEA residents will require appropriate insurance when travelling to the Isle of Man.

 

It is worth noting that even travellers with an EHIC can be required to pay some of the costs of treatment when in EU/EEA countries. The UK Government strongly advises its residents to make certain that they are insured, even if they hold an EHIC.
