Speaking recently about the already strong amount of entries received, since the entry process for the Pre TT Classic opened just over a week ago, Southern 100 Racing Race Secretary, Club Chairman George Peach candidly stated:
“Although entries for the Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic Road Races don’t close until the end of April, it is an encouraging start to receive so many entries within the first ten days of entries being available.
The Classics have always been popular on the Billown course since they were introduced in 1988 and they provide some excellent, close racing not for the feint-hearted and we look forward to seeing a full paddock once again this year, as seems likely from the early response.”
Reminder this year’s Blackford’s Pre TT Classic Road Races which is certain to provide captivating, entertaining, top calibre classic racing action, takes place from the 29th May to the 1st of June.
