Hopes tonight's practice session will go ahead

Weather put paid to Festival of Motorcycling practice on Saturday

It's hoped that practicing can get underway this evening (Mon 22nd) for the 2016 Festival of Motorcycling.

The first session - which was scheduled for Saturday evening - had to be cancelled due to the poor weather.

Weather allowing - roads today are due to close at 6pm with the practice due to begin with a speed controlled lap for Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix newcomers at 6.20pm.

With the weather continuing very changeable, Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson says it's likely to cause more disruption.

If tonight's session goes ahead, roads are due to open again no later than 9pm.
