Isle of Man Government Confirms Cancellation of
2021 Isle of Man Classic TT® Races
|We have woken this morning to the news that the Isle of Man Government has officially cancelled the 2021 Isle of Man Classic TT® (Classic TT) due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.|
Isle of Man Minister for Enterprise, Laurence Skelly confirmed the decision stating:
“Despite the undoubted progress that the Isle of Man and the UK are making in rolling out its vaccination programme, the central issue of the availability of sufficient marshals, medics and other race officials to run the event safely and effectively remains. Once again we are making an early, but regrettable, decision to provide clarity and certainty to race officials, fans and sponsors, as well as the teams and competitors.”
The Minister concluded by stating:
“Our focus and resources will now be switched on to the successful return of racing on the Mountain Course for the 2022 TT Races, Classic TT Races and Manx Grand Prix and we look forward to welcoming visitors to our island when it is safe and practical for them to return.“
The Sportsnet® team appreciates the disappointment that many of you would feel after another Classic TT cancellation. We share your disappointment. Isle of Man races are widely regarded as the favourite events for many in our team.
