Manx TT Super Bike (マンクスTT スーパーバイク) is a Sega Model 2A CRX 3D arcade motorbike racing game developed by Sega AM3 and Sega AM4. It was initially released in 1995.


Unlike similar games which Sega had released in the past (most notably the Hang-On series), Manx TT Super Bike is set in a real-life scenario, having players race around the Isle of Man TT circuit. Eight arcade cabinets can be linked together similar to Daytona USA, making it very popular in arcades of the era.

Sheep Mode

There is a code that allows racers to play as sheep, possibly as a nod to the breed of Manx sheep that are only found on the Isle of Man (though the playable sheep are not Manx sheep).

The mode can be accessed in the arcade version with the following combination on the transmission select screen; shift up, shift up, shift down, shift down, lean the bike full left, lean the bike full right, break and accelerate.

The Saturn version is similar; UpUpDownDownLeftRightZY, also on the transmission select screen.

Similarly, Daytona USA: Championship Circuit Edition allows the user to play as a horse.



The game was brought to the Sega Saturn and PC in 1997 by Psygnosis, Perfect Entertainment and Tantalus Interactive. These versions were distributed under the Sega Sports brand (and in the case of the US versions, the short lived "Sega Racing" brand), and feature a Redbook audio soundtrack. The Saturn version cuts back on the graphical fidelity or the Model 2 version, however the PC version improves on the formula, offering higher resolution graphics and better sound.

Many of the unsold Manx TT Super Bike arcade cabinets were converted into Motor Raid ones, a futuristic motorbike game released in 1997.
