TT 2019: Major Thursday/Friday Race Schedule Alterations Confirmed

Given how the weather has panned out over the past few weeks, it’s not at all surprising to see TT organisers making bold decisions schedules wise, for tomorrow, Friday’s planned race action.

The recently postponed Monster Energy Supersport race 2, that joins Thursday’s race itinerary, is set to form part of a four race schedule. Yes you read that right, a four race schedule!

Hoped to run over four laps, the ultra competitive Royal London 360 Superstock class takes centre stage first on Thursday, with action planned to get underway at 12:15 PM.

The second three lap Sidecar encounter follows at 2:15 PM, whilst the innovative, also divider of various opinions SES TT Zero race follows at 4:00 PM.
