Manx Motor Cycle Club hits back

Disappointment is the emotion being expressed by the Manx Motor Cycle Club in a statement regarding last Friday's announcement that A.C.U. Events Limited would take over as next year's T.T. race organisers .

Today's release suggests that, following the Club's resignation on the 27th September, the Department of Tourism refused to meet with Club representatives to talk about a new T.T. contract.

The Club says the resignation letter clearly stated a willingness to carry on in the role of race organiser, but under new terms and conditions.

However, the Manx Motor Cycle Club says the Department of Tourism did not enter into any discussions, about possible ways forward, prior to the appointment of A.C.U. Events Limited.

The statement finishes by saying the Club is now concentrating on planning its own event - the Manx Grand Prix.
