The weather has dominated the news at the 2017 Isle of Man TT Races so far.  Why?  Because it has been awful.  We should have had practice on Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday so far.  However due to a combination of rain, fog and rain and fog we have only had a one complete session which was Tuesday’s (30/05/2017).

The weather on Tuesday was glorious and to be honest bar a bit of a wash out on Sunday all day, the weather for some reason really has it in for the races at the minute as it has a tendancy to close in towards the late afternoon and evening.  Wednesday for examole was a glorious morning, come the late afternoon it started to close in and only one lap of the session was completed before the organsisers called the session off.

The weather on Wednesday 31st May 2017 morning - a glorious day!

  • We are now 1,539 practice @iom_tt laps behind last year (2016) or over 58,000 miles of a difference – almost 2.5 trips around the Earth!
