- On average, they stayed 6.5 nights and spent £668 on the trip – a total of £26.2 million. This represents an economic benefit to the Island of £18.9 million and an exchequer benefit of £3.5 million.
- The number of TT visitors in the Island on any one day reached a peak of just over 25,000 on Sunday 2nd June (“Mad Sunday”).
