Olympic Flame visits the Island

Sat, 02 Jun 2012

The Olympic flame will be carried on a lifeboat, a horse tram and a TT sidecar when it touches down in the Isle of Man today.

The flame’s arrival here on the first race day of TT 2012 makes it likely that it’s going to be a busy and memorable day for the Island.

23 torch bearers in total will carry the famous Olympic symbol as it visits Douglas, Laxey, Onchan, Ballasalla and Castletown.

It will arrive at the NSC at 10.25 and then be carried on the TT course between the Quarterbridge and Braddan Bridge.

After a trip on the horse tram and the lifeboat it will travel with cyclists on Douglas Promenade, before taking a trip on the electric tram to Laxey, where it will arrive around 1.15pm.

It will be carried through Onchan at around 2.40 and then travel inside a vehicle until the convoy reaches Ballasalla at 3.15pm.

A public party is being thrown in Castletown Square which is the final point of the flame’s journey on the Island.
