Unfortunately due to a mix of fog, mist and rain embarking upon the Mountain Course, this evening’s Manx Grand Prix/Classic TT practice session has been called off.
As stated by Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson via Twitter, poor visibility on the Mountain section of the world’s most famous roads circuit, has proven the main instigator in curtailing tonight’s competition.

This is obviously disappointing news for all competitors, including all the 30 plus Mountain Course newcomers, who have presently so far during practice week not completed a non speed controlled lap.
Hopefully the weather will be more favourable for tomorrow evening’s practice session, which is scheduled to get underway at 6:20 PM.
