This evening’s Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix qualifying session has been called off due to continued low and mist that has covered the course earlier than anticipated.

Tomorrow’s (Wednesday) qualifying programme will now be as follows:

18.00 - Roads close around the course

18.20 - 19.05 MGP Senior/ MGP Junior/ CTT Lightweight/ CTT Superbike (no newcomers)

19.10 - 19.45 CTT Junior/ CTT Senior/ MGP Lightweight & Ultra Lightweight

19.48 - 20.00 MGP newcomers accompanied by experienced riders

In addition, Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson has confirmed that the race organisation will now use the additional qualifying session on the afternoon of Thursday 23rd August, which was provisionally scheduled in the race authorisation. This will mean that there will be two qualifying sessions on Thursday 23rd to ensure that the riders have enough time to practice before the first scheduled race day on Saturday 25th August.

Thursday’s qualifying programme will see roads close around the course at 12.30pm with the first qualifying session running from 1pm to 3.55pm. The roads will then open again at 4.30pm around the course and close again at 6pm for the scheduled evening qualifying session.
