Naturally these dates and running order remain very provisional since this year’s Isle of Man TT appeared to prove that Mother Nature is not a big fan of road racing based on the daily re-jigging of the schedule to accommodate the persistent rain and fog that forced much of the track action to be squeezed into an excitingly compact – albeit stressful – timetable.
Once action did eventually get underway though, the TT once again demonstrated exactly why it is regarded as one of the world’s foremost festivals – sporting or otherwise – with Peter Hickman affirming his newfound reputation as a legend of ‘The Mountain’ with only a technical issue in the Senior TT denying him a sweep of the major titles.
In the meantime, why not get into the booking spirit by watching highlights from the centrepiece race.
Only 309 days to go…
