Welcome to the T.T.R.A. website.
The T.T. Riders Association (TTRA) website offers information and articles on the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy riders association. Take a look through the website for access to the Society archives including photos, newsletters and a brief history of the Association.
The T.T. Riders Association is the only Isle of Man registered
charity in motorcycle racing for motorcycle racers. If you start
a T.T. race you can join for £35 which gives you Life Membership.
If you are new to the TTRA or have never heard of us, this is the place to start.
The values and aims of the TTRA haven't changed in the many years that it has been in existence. Riders, and their families, who face real hardship, are helped as much as is possible and for as long as is necessary. By its very nature, confidentiality is everything, this work goes largely unnoticed. But the sting in the tail for the TTRA is that by having to hide its light under a bushel the association finds it that much more difficult to cast the fundraising net farther afield. It also comes as a surprise to find that an organisation founded out of necessity in the 1950's should still be needed in 21st Century, but needed it most definitely still is.

We can assist with Riders who may have been injured in the sport we all love and enjoy, or for some unfortunate reason financial assistance may be asked for. These circumstances are dealt with confidentially and with discretion. We always appreciate a call from a good friend or relative who can guide us through the TTRA members situation.
The Friends of the TTRA
The Friends of the TTRA is a great way for
those who enjoy the TT, but have never ridden in a race to help support the TTRA. Please go to the FoTTRA pages for more information.
Friends are maybe those who made the race possible for a rider such as a sponsor, a mechanic, a marshal, official, a member of the riders family or even a TT enthusiast. The list includes manufacturers, ordinary motorcyclists and business people who have an interest in motorcycle sport or the objects of the charity.
