Steam Packet International Southern 100

Directions to Billown circuit

Travelling from the Sea Terminal in Douglas your journey should take no more than 25 mins, the directions that I have prepared for you will pass the airport and take you to the start/finish line of the Billown circuit. For anyone that is travelling from the airport your journey will only be 5 mins.

Leave the sea terminal following signs Castletown, Airport or A5

Leaving the sea terminal turn left at the first roundabout and left again at the second roundabout, straight over the next and over the blue lifting bridge. Turn right at the roundabout follow the road along the quay the next two roundabouts travel straight.

Follow the road minding not to go left at the fork which is found at the top of the hill. Just stay on the road till you reach another roundabout. You will see signs for the airport, turn left here and travel south with no more roundabouts or junctions for approximately 15mins.

The road you’re on now will go past a few landmarks, firstly there will be a classic motorbike museum on the left then shortly after you will pass the fairy bridge, take a serious of bends crossing over the steam railway line. The end of this road is a small roundabout where you will turn left towards the airport.

There are two roundabouts outside the airport grounds. You need to cross both of them following signs for Castletown. On your left is a sign post that welcomes you to Castletown, the next two roundabouts bear right passing by two petrol stations.

The circuit is directly in front of you at the junction with the traffic lights. Continue straight through the junction onto the start/finish line.

Turn left at the next junction. Just off the junction you will find both the race office and paddocks.
