Will today see the 2019 Festival of Motorcycling get underway tonight?

Roads are currently due to close around the TT course from 6pm and re-open no later than 9pm.

It comes after the original opener on Saturday was called off due to poor weather conditions following a series of delays, and yesterdays contingency schedule cancelled because of a lack of marshals.

Should today run as planned, the session will open the Classic TT Superbikes/Lightweights at 6.20pm and finish with the MGP Newcomers practice at around 7.45pm.
