BAC Celebrates Show-Stopping Weekend On The Isle Of Man

  • Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) recently took to the Isle of Man for a festival of track and road fun behind the wheel of the Mono supercar
  • An army of 12 Monos hit the island as part of a special customer experience weekend, enjoying de-restricted and closed roads around the stunning island with like-minded enthusiasts and BAC staff
  • The Isle of Man prides itself on offering the perfect setting for extreme sports, driving and cycling, and the BAC team certainly put its picturesque scenery and ultimate driving roads to great use
  • Famed for its ability on both the track and road, the Mono was perfectly at home on its Isle of Man playground, as BAC and the local Government created unforgettable memories for clients and friends

Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) is celebrating the monumental success of its extra-special experience weekend on the Isle of Man with an army of its One-of-a-Kind Mono supercars and valued customers.

Famed for offering some of the best driving roads on the planet, the Isle of Man is the perfect location for a driving weekend and BAC teamed up with the Isle of Man Government to show customers exactly what the stunning island has to offer.

The Government provided support to BAC by carrying out a full risk assessment and de-restricting and closing roads purely for the event, and it’s safe to say the lucky attendees took full advantage of their surroundings.

BAC brought 20 customers – representing 10 nationalities – to the island, along with 12 scintillating Monos ready to enjoy the four-day road trip of a lifetime. It’s the first time BAC has had as many as 12 Monos together, thus making history for the brand.

Mono Mania took over all over the island, including when the team descended on the picturesque south west coast of the island to enjoy fully marshalled driving on specially de-restricted and closed roads.

Such is the accessibility of the Mono’s performance that the 12-strong supercar team relished every second on the tarmac, with the car’s sophisticated suspension system ironing out the bumpy surfaces and providing unrivalled thrills.

The cars also lined up at Castletown Market Square and caused quite the stir amongst awe-inspired locals and Isle of Man press, plus guests were treated to exclusive track experiences at Jurby Aifield and a lap on the famous TT Course. Only BAC could offer such a remarkable road trip to its loyal and valued customers, and the way the team came together was a true sight to behold.

BAC takes pride in being more connected with its clients than any other supercar manufacturer, and by bringing some of them together, it was able to created lifelong memories and give its friends the chance to sample the Mono lifestyle in the perfect settings.

BAC is forever giving back to those who gave the brand its phenomenal stature around the globe, and taking to the Isle of Man is one of many ways BAC is repaying its nearest and dearest.

BAC Co-Founder and Director of Product Development, Neill Briggs, said: “What a fantastic weekend we enjoyed on the Isle of Man – that’s something we’ve got used to saying! The island really is perfect for the Mono, and we are incredibly grateful to have the chance to give our clients a taste of the Mono lifestyle in such idyllic surroundings. The Government were nothing but helpful in our quest for driving perfection with responsibility and we’d like to extend our thanks to them for making it possible. Mono Mania truly gripped the Isle of Man during our stay and we can’t wait to get back on the island next year and continue this annual tradition.”

Laurence Skelly MHK, Minister for the Department of Economic Development, commented: “I am delighted that the BAC team and their customers visited our Island and were able to discover the fantastic landscapes, towns and people of the Isle of Man. BAC have demonstrated the continuing appeal and popularity of the Isle of Man as a world-class destination for motorsports and the Department will continue to develop this market for the future.”
