Classic TT/Manx Grand Prix: Thursday Afternoon Practice Session Called Off

Once again this week on Manx shores the weather has wreaked havoc with an anticipated practice schedule, with confirmation this morning from event organisers that Thursday afternoon’s practice session has been called off.

You only have to view the videos posted on Clerk of The Course Gary Thompson’s Twitter stream, to see why the decision has been made to cancel this afternoon’s Classic TT/Manx GP practice action.

Fingers crossed, weather permitting again that tonight’s practice session takes place, the competitors need it, the teams need it, the organisers deserve a break.
