Isle of Man TT centenary stamp set
The stamp sets cost 20 each
A set of stamps to mark the centenary of the Isle of Man's TT races have been officially launched on the island.

On Monday morning record TT sidecar winner, Dave Molyneux, rode pillion for a lap of the Mountain Course while carrying 100 sets of first day covers.

He then joined Tourism Minister Adrian Earnshaw and DTI Minister David Cretney at Regent Street Post Office where the stamps were on sale for an hour.

To mark the occasion, Molyneux signed a number of the 20 sets.

According to Philatelic Bureau Manager, Dot Tilbury, the stamps feature a definitive list of the greatest TT competitors of all time.

Other collectables introduced to celebrate the centenary include TT postcards, mini stamp sheet folders, TT coins and the TT 100 book.
