Tourist Trophy centenary badge

Date made: 2007

Maker: unknown

Description: This badge was produced to mark the centenary of the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) races in 2007. It was purchased in Ramsey on Tuesday of Race Week (the day of the Ramsey Sprint) for £1. This was the last one in the shop as the rest had been sold.

The badge has a spike backing for wear in the lapel. It is shaped as two crossed flags (a Manx flag and a chequered flag) with coloured enamel decoration and lettering 'Isle of Man 1907 TT Races 2007'.

In 2007 the TT celebrated its centenary, and few other motorsport events can claim to have as much history or heritage. Events such as the Ramsey sprint, which occur alongside the main race schedule, are a major part of its appeal.
