Sammanfattning (abstract):
The TT and GP motorcycle races at the Isle of Man provide a suitable case for investigating a specific event, its participants, the facilitators as well as the spectators by using the theoretical frameworks of neo-tribes (Hardy, Gretzel & Hanson, 2013), serious leisure (Harrington, Cuskelly & Auld, 2000) and motorsport culture (Dibben & Dolles, 2013). The research is be based upon qualitative interviews with participants and facilitators of the Classic TT and Manx GP races during August 2015. When watching the races as spectators, we also implemented the method of participant observation to connect ourselves as academic researchers to the topic of study in a manner that allows an otherwise unavailable rich engagement with the event and provides insight into the nature of neo-tribalism, serious leisure and motorsport culture by exploring the value of the event as a lived experience.
