Changes to scrutineering led to resignation

Radical changes to scrutineering at T.T. 2008 is the reason why Chief Technical Officer Jeff Kirby resigned.

Currently all machines go through scrutineering at the start of every practice and race session.

However, Manx Radio understands the new meeting organisers, A.C.U. Events Limited, intends to look at a only small number of bikes at the start of practice week. More scrutineering will then take place ahead of races.

The officials for T.T. 2008 could now be announced as early as Monday, rather than at the start of February as originally planned.
