Driving without speed limits isn’t something the owners of Britain’s fastest supercars and luxury cars get to do very often. And it’s for that reason H.R. Owen, in partnership with the Briggs Automotive Company, is heading to the Isle of Man for 96-hours of gear-shifting madness along some of the world’s greatest roads—including the 37.7-mile-long Mountain Course featured in the Isle of Man TT.
The four-day event will be a pure, Isle of Man driving experience, steeped in the rich motorsport history of the island. A history painted in speed, power, tight-twists, hairpin-turns, spine-tingling straightaways, and some of the most iconic roadway views on the face of the Earth.
This once-in-a-lifetime driving tour will start on the morning of 11th May and concluding the afternoon of 14th May.
Day 1 – Thursday 11th May
The Isle of Man Experience kicks off with a light breakfast followed by an exclusive tour of the Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) in Liverpool.
Founded in 2009 by brothers of Neill and Ian Briggs, BAC designs and builds specialist sports cars for true automotive enthusiasts. Their first vehicle—the Mono—is a central-seat, carbon-fibre, road-hugging masterpiece designed to replicate the look and feel of a Formula 1 racer but in a street-legal format.
In the afternoon guests will sail for the lovely seaside village of Douglas, current capital of the Isle of Man, where generous accommodation will be reserved at the luxurious Sefton Hotel.
Unwind from a busy day in complete comfort before heading down for a relaxed dinner hosted by BAC Co-Founder Neill Briggs. A history of the island’s rich heritage will be provided by a special guest speaker.
Day 2 – Friday 12thMay
Gather for breakfast in the hotel dining room before heading off to the Jurby Circuit, the only year-round racetrack on the Isle of Man. Originally built as a World War II airfield, the circuit still uses the original runway to create a truly unique driving experience.
Once at Jurby, British driver Oliver Webb—the 2010 Formula 3 second runner-up, 2014 European Le Mans Series Champion, and 2015 Dubai 24-Hour Champion—will guide guests in a day at the track. For those who do not own a Mono, this will be an opportunity to test drive BAC’s F1 technical engineering in a road-legal format.
A delicious home-cooked lunch using fresh, locally-sourced produce will be provided courtesy of the Guard House Café, and the day will conclude with a private cocktail reception at the Isle of Man Motor Museum with dinner back at the Sefton.
Day 3 – Saturday 13th May
While each of the four-day Isle of Man Experience is significant in its own way, Day Three is the true can’t-miss highlight.
This is a road-driver’s dream—a fully-marshalled, closed-road, steep-uphill drive over the wonderfully challenging Sloc pass.
Once in Castletown, the caravan will stop directly across from Castle Rushen (one of the world’s most exquisitely preserved medieval castles) for a private lunch at the Isle of Man’s finest restaurant, Leonardo’s.
After lunch it’s back to the cars for a speed-saturated lap around the entire 37.73-mile Isle of Man TT circuit, of which several parts are unrestricted for speed.
When the lap is done, its back to Douglas for drinks and dinner.
Day 4 – Sunday 14thMay
Finally, it’s time to say farewell to the Isle of Man, but not before taking a scenic ride to the famous Lady Isabella waterwheel at Laxey.
