Festival of Motorcycling afternoon sessions put in place

TT organisers have confirmed additional qualifying sessions for both the Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix will be used today and tomorrow.

 Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson confirmed the news following a string of delays and cancellations this week.

Last night's session was shortened due to a crash on the Mountain Road, and Monday and Tuesday's practices were cancelled due to poor weather conditions.

All roads around the route are due to close at 1.30pm until 4.30pm today and 12:30pm until 4:30pm tomorrow, and then again from 6pm until 9pm on both days.

Organisers say it's to ensure riders get enough practice ahead of the first scheduled race on Saturday.
