Classic TT – Practice/Race Schedule

Bolstered this year by the inclusion of many high profile event debutants, excitement by the bucket load is increasing for competitors, teams and fans on the eve of the fifth Classic TT Races.

The practice/race schedule for the showpiece in my opinion classic roads event worldwide, is pretty much unchanged from last year.
