Geschiedenis[bewerken]

Tot en met 1910 werden de klassen tijdens de Isle of Man TT vooral ingedeeld op het aantal cilinders. Tweecilinders mochten toen nog een grotere cilinderinhoud hebben, omdat ze langzamer waren dan de eencilinders. Nog in 1910 mochten de eencilinders 500- en de tweecilinders 750 cc motoren hebben. In 1911 werden twee nieuwe klassen ingevoerd: de 500 cc Senior TT en de 350 cc Junior TT. In 1922 kwam daar de 250 cc Lightweight TT bij en in 1924 de 175 cc Ultra-Lightweight TT.

Clubmans Junior[bewerken]

In 1947 voegde men een tweede "Junior" klasse toe, de "Clubmans Junior", voor clubmanracers. In 1949 werd de Isle of Man TT toegevoegd aan het programma van het Wereldkampioenschap wegrace. In de jaren vijftig werden de Italiaanse merken Moto Guzzi, Gilera en MV Agusta te sterk voor de Britse merken. Daarom werd in 1959 een nieuwe klasse bedacht, de "350 Formula One", die alleen openstond voor "toonbankmotoren" die normaal te koop waren. In die klasse stonden de snelle Italiaanse fabrieksracers buitenspel en konden de Britten domineren. Omdat de Italianen zich al teruggetrokken hadden uit het wereldkampioenschap, verdween die klasse weer meteen.

Na de dood van Gilberto Parlotti in de 125 cc race van 1972, besloten een aantal grote rijders, zoals Giacomo Agostini, Phil Read en Rodney Gould de TT van Man voortaan te boycotten. Parlotti was het 99e slachtoffer van de Snaefell Mountain Course.

In 1977 had de Isle of Man TT haar wereldkampioenschapsstatus verloren en werd de cilinderinhoud van de Junior TT teruggebracht naar 250 cc. De Lightweight TT werd daardoor geschrapt en de 250 cc productiemotorfietsen zwierven samen met de 400 cc viertakten door verschillende andere klassen, zoals de Production TT, de Formula Three TT, de Production 100-250 cc TT, de Production Class D TT en de Supersport 400 TT. In 1995 kwam de Lightweight TT terug, toen de Junior overging naar 600 cc Supersport motoren.

Junior 350 TT[bewerken]

In 1983 werd de 350 cc klasse voor één jaar in ere hersteld, niet in de Junior TT, maar in de extra toegevoegde "Junior 350 cc TT".

Tegenwoordig rijden in deze klasse 600 cc vierclinder- en 750 cc tweecilinder viertakten volgens het Supersport 600-reglement samen met 250 cc tweetakt- GP-machines.
