TT cancelled; Billown Pre-TT and Post TT Races also cancelled.

The organizers of the TT have bowed to the inevitable and cancelled this year’s TT. With the the dramatic ramping up of restrictions on the movement of people across the world and especially in Europe, there is simply no way in which the events could have taken place.   The self-isolation expected of people arriving in the island and when they return home, instantly make sporting and other events, such as concerts, impossible to hold.

Given the dire warnings emanating from Downing Street yesterday it seems certain that both the Southern 100 and Classic TT/MGP will also have to be cancelled. Our cosy lifestyle is going to be changed significantly for many months; unless a cure can be found immediately.

Follow the advice and stay safe.
