Manx Grand Prix/Classic TT: Torrential Rain Halts Friday Afternoon’s Practice Session

I wish I was writing a full scale, in depth practice report today, but I’m not as it seems customary at this years Manx Grand Prix, Classic TT Races, with more wet weather halting this afternoon’s practice session.

Following torrential rain venturing upon selection sections of the Mountain Course, Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson had once again no option but to cancel all of the planned mid day competitive action.

Attention now turns to this evening’s timed practice, were we can only hope the weather, luck turns for the better, for the event organisers, teams and racers.
