The speculation of will or won’t the TT 2021 run has now been answered.
The Isle of Man Government announced today that the next time the TT Races will run will be in 2022.
Press Release :
The Isle of Man Government today confirmed the cancellation of the 2022 TT Races. The next TT Races will bow take place in 2022, from Saturday 28th May to Saturday 11th June.
Laurence Skelly, MHK, Minister, Department for Enterprise, Isle of Man Government, said:
‘We do not underestimate the disappointment that this decision will cause to many people. However, we are making an early and logical decision to provide certainty and clarity to race fans and everyone else involved in our event. The TT relies on thousands of volunteers and officials across a wide range of organisations and we could not move responsibly towards operating to that date and commit to welcoming tens of thousands of people to the Island in June, despite the progress towards a vaccination programme globally and on the Island.’
‘We evaluated all possible options including moving the TT to a date later in the year but there are complexities and risks, including scaling up of certain infrastructure and critical delivery elements of the TT, as well as existing resident and visitor travel in late August, which would cause further disruption to thousands of people.’
‘We remain hopeful that the Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix can take place later in the year and we look forward to welcoming visitors to our Island again.’
