Ace at Isle of Man Classic TT & Manx GP 17/08/2013

In partnership with Isle of Man Government Department of Economic Development, Ace Cafe London presence at the forthcoming inaugural Isle of Man Classic TT, including with a display depicting the history of the iconic venue, is located at the heart of the action at the Paddock and Grandstand - with free parking available in the adjoining Nobles Park.
Ace Corner Isle of Man runs from Practise week, through the bank holiday weekend of Classic TT, and remains in place until the end of the 90th annual Manx Grand Prix.
The all new Classic TT starts midday on Friday 23rd August with the clocks turned back to the 1960's for the "Paddock Carnival".
Amongst the attractions will be a number of displays of exotic racing bikes from the past one hundred years and which is undoubtedly the most amazing line up of machinery ever to be assembled at the same time on the Isle of Man.
The Vintage Motorcycle Club will be in attendance, riding from their 2013 rally into the venue during the day.
Past and present racing celebrities and stars such as Giacomo Agostini, John McGuinness, Phil Read, Mick Grant, Conor Cummins, Michael Dunlop, Freddie Spencer, Kork Ballington, Cameron Donald, Steve Baker and Bruce Anstey being just some of the famous faces you can expect to bump into.
As well as classic bikes, there will be displays of classic cars and buses, vintage fairground rides will provide entertainment for younger visitors, and Duke Marketing will have their 1960's Coco tent open throughout the day.
A stage, erected at the rear of the Grandstand, will play host to live music from The Manx Jazz Aces and the Nigel Williams Band, playing some of the best known hits from the 1960's throughout the day, and which will also feature "chat shows", hosted and broadcast live by the Radio TT Classic Team with some of the leading personalities in attendance.
The ever popular Purple Helmets will perform in Pit Lane, in front of the main TT Grandstand at 3pm whilst "George Formby", star of the film "No Limits" will also be performing on the day with his home built racing bike, the Shuttleworth Snap.
Mortons Media Group are mounting an exhibition of TT images from the 1960's in their Grandstand retail unit.
For those looking for a souvenir, Motorsport Merchandise will have a full range of the official Classic TT gear on sale, with other retail outlets open all day to include Duke, RST Leathers, Crossan Motorcycles, Scott Leathers, DH Autos, Red Torpedo, The Joey Dunlop Foundation and Ace Cafe London.
The Classic TT Paddock Carnival will have a 1960's theme throughout the day and there is a competition, on the day, for the best 1960's costume, judged by none other than twenty times TT winner John McGuinness - the prize being two VIP hospitality tickets for the following days racing.
