No IoM TT in 2021
« on: December 01, 2020, 09:01:15 am »
According to the BBC News this morning:

Next year's TT races on the Isle of Man have been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The festival, worth about 30m to the Manx economy, brings tens of thousands of visitors each year. It had been due to take place from 29 May to 12 June.
Enterprise Minister Laurence Skelly said the "logical decision" to cancel the event for a second year was needed to protect residents and visitors.
Current support for affected businesses has been extended by a month.
