Urgent plea for marshals after qualifying is cancelled

Qualifying sessions cancelled for Sunday

Qualifying and practice sessions for the Festival of Motorcycling have been cancelled today due to bad weather and a shortage of marshals. 

The Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix qualifying was due to take place from 12:45pm, after the majority of last night's session was cancelled.

Only the Newcomers went out on a speed controlled lap.

The clerk of the course says today they've had to cancel because of bad weather and a significant shortage of marshals. 

Gary Thompson says "it is very clear we will be 80+ marshals short" and he wants to concentrate on rectifying the issues for Monday night's sessions.
