Weather disrupts Festival of Motorcycling

Thursday afternoon practice to be used

Organisers and fans of the Festival of Motorcycling are hoping for better weather tonight.

Persistent mist and wet conditions mean last night's qualifying sessions were called off before a single bike could leave the Grandstand.

Tonight's (Wed) practices are still set to go ahead as planned, with roads closing at 6pm - and Manx Grand Prix and Classic TT entrants setting off shortly afterwards.

An additional contingency session has also been planned for Thursday afternoon, in addition to the usual evening practice.

Roads will close around the Mountain Course tomorrow (Thu) at 12.30pm, reopening at 4.30pm and closing once more at 6pm.
