TT 2019: Weather Emerges Victorious As Tuesday Race Action Abandoned

Many predicted it, but it’s still disappointing to report that Tuesday’s race action at TT 2019, has been abandoned due to once again, the unpredictable, inclement weather on Manx shores.

Commenting via Twitter, on the cancellation of today’s competition on the fabled, mythical Mountain Course, TT Clerk of The Course Gary Thompson MBE BEM, stated:

“Today’s schedule cancelled due to poor weather. Low cloud/fog mist and rain for most of the day, sometimes heavy, sometimes light.

No chance for roads to dry. Heli ops severely disrupted/not possible. Revised schedule for tomorrow to be issued by 1:00 PM. GT.”

As mentioned by Thompson MBE BEM, the schedule for Wednesday’s proposed race action will be revealed at 1:00 PM, with Wednesday’s race itinerary anticipated to now include the four lap Royal London 360 Superstock race.
