Consultancy offer to Hanson a possibility

A.C.U. General Secretary Gary Thompson has told Manx Radio he is keen to open negotiations to offer Neil Hanson a consultancy role at T.T. 2008. However, Mr Hanson says he has yet to hear from A.C.U. Events Limited.

Earlier, it was revealed Neil Hanson will no longer be Clerk of the Course. He has also resigned from the same position at the Manx Grand Prix, and ended a 40 year involvement as a committee member of the Manx Motor Cycle Club.

The Chief Technical Officer for the T.T. Jeff Kirby has also resigned in a dispute with A.C.U. Events Limited over the number of machines to be scrutineered before each race or practice session. Mr Kirby has declined to comment any further.

Meanwhile, the delayed regulations for the T.T., which includes details of all officials for the 2008 meeting, are with the Department of Tourism for final approval.

Mr Thompson says the relationship between the A.C.U. and the department is excellent:-
