Classic TT/Manx Grand Prix: Tuesday Practice Schedule Alterations Announced

Revealed this morning at 11:45 AM, Clerk of The Course Gary Thompson announced that Junior/Senior Classic TT, Ultra Lightweight/Lightweight/Newcomers B Manx GP exponents will be the first to take to the Mountain Course this evening.

The change in schedule is due to the lack of track time that Junior/Senior Classic, Ultra Lightweight/Lightweight Manx GP class competitors have gained this week, thanks to a combination of factors including sheer bad luck, short marshal numbers and inclement weather.

Competitive action this evening is hoped to get underway from 6:20 PM, with roads anticipated to begin to re-open to the general public from 8:10 PM.
