a motorsport photographer's dream

Choose an experience:

This is something quite unique !

You stay with David & Judy in their one guest bedroom, four star, Bed & Breakfast home.
(a 'walk through' video is available here)
As an example, you (and maybe your partner) will travel with David to all qualifying or race day sessions at (say) the TT festival.
He will take you to his favourite, lesser known vantage points to capture the high speed action ... we take the bbq and the kettle, too !
Non qualifying or race days, you will have to yourselves.

Race periods are naturally restricted to the motorsport calendar and premium rates will apply to major racing festival related visits.
These periods are listed separately upon our booking platform and we suggest a click on the check availability or book button below.
