TT FORTNIGHT marks the last chance to see the spectacular Mountain Milestones exhibition at the House of Manannan in Peel, which ends on June 10.

The free exhibition, created for TT last year to mark the 100th anniversary of the Mountain Course, has seen more than 53,000 visitors through the door.

The star of the show has been the Humber motorcycle which won the first ever race held on the mountain, the 1911 Junior TT, with Percy Evans aboard. He won in a time of 3 hours 37 minutes, at an average speed of 41 miles an hour. The exhibition also includes memorabilia such as leathers, helmets and trophies. Other exhibits include a medal awarded to a special constable on duty at the TT every year, nursing memorabilia and marshalling artefacts.

Historic film footage running in the exhibition adds to the atmosphere. Mountain Milestones is open daily from 10am to 5pm
