There will be a small date clash between the T.T. and the British Superbike Championship next year.
The first practice for T.T. 2009 is scheduled for the evening of Saturday 30th May.
The full B.S.B calendar has just been released and shows a meeting at Thruxton between Friday 29th and Sunday 31st May.
The situation could mean a hectic start to T.T. fortnight for riders such as Steve Plater who is contesting the British Supersport Championship for H.M.Plant Honda.
