Major initiative for fans at TT 2012

'Fan zones' are to be introduced at the TT next year.

Five spots on the mountain course, namely Crosby Jump, Rhencullen, Ballacrye, Ginger Hall and Creg-ny-Baa, have been selected.

The areas will feature temporary grandstands, each with room for 200 to 300 fans, along with catering and toilet facilities, free WiFi and parking, and enhanced PA systems relaying the Manx Radio TT live race commentary.

Organisers say with demand so high for seats at the Grandstand, they have decided to introduce the areas to offer fans an alternative.
