Three-hour delay to Thursday racing :

Poor weather pushes back road closures

Delays have been announced to today’s TT racing schedule.

Organisers have consulted with the Met Office and Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson has confirmed there’ll be a three-hour delay to proceedings.

The wet weather this morning means roads around the course will now remain open until 1.45pm when Barrule Park in Ramsey to the Bungalow will be shut.

From 2pm the Bungalow to the Creg ny Baa will be closed, before roads around the rest of the course follow suit half an hour later at 2.30pm.

An further update on the day’s schedule is expected at midday.

The Monster Energy Supersport Race 2 and the SES TT Zero Race are due to take place today.
