TT 2021 Cancelled

TT 2021 Cancelled :

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.’

Paul Phillips, TT Business Development Manager, Isle of Man Government Department for Enterprise added:

Motorcycle Live 2020 :

Motorcycle Live for 2020 has went virtual!

Due to the ongoing global Covid-19 Pandemic, like so many events Motorcycle Live at the Birmingham NEC has had to be postponed until 2021.

However – a 2020 Show will go on, but for this year it will be online!

Running from 21 – 29 November 2020 at you will be able to browse 51 microsites from manufacturers and dozens more from exhibitors.

Obviously it won’t be the same as a walking round the huge arena with a camera and notepad to make a shortlist of what you may buy next nor be able to go home with your new helmet or latest selection of gear for the winter or even next Season but you can still sit down with a cup of coffee and spend some time perfecting your wish list!

The Coach Banbridge, Northern Ireland’s Oldest Nightclub… Closes

The Coach Banbridge :

In a press release on Wednesday 4th November 2020 Northern Ireland’s oldest nightclub announced that it was closing its doors, permanently.

Citing the Covid-19 pandemic and no foreseeable opening date for the nightclub industry the iconic Northern Irish Club announced that it was closing for good.

I’m far too old for the Coach now but in my younger days I spend many, many Wednesday and Saturday nights in that night club. I have already used the word ‘iconic’ and that is what it was, unfortunately now it will ‘legendary’ – the stuff of stories and legend.

Deep down I wish that some miracle happens and when the world gets itself back to normal so too does the Coach, not for me, but for the generations that now won’t get to experience it.

Thank you to everyone who works, runs, worked, ran and went to the coach especially those of us who were there in the decade of 1996 – 2006, we nailed it!

Banbridge has lost something very special.
