Race week for the 2019 Festival of Motorcycling is due to get underway today.

There’s a full day planned out on the TT course, with roads around the circuit scheduled to close from 11am and open again at 7.30pm tonight.

The majority of the day will see qualifying take place for various classes in the Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix after most of practice week was called off due to poor weather conditions.

The two races today will be the Senior Classic TT and Lightweight Classic TT, both expected to get going at 1.15pm and 4.10pm respectively.
