Today's racing schedule (8 June) has been delayed due to 'an isolated shower on the west of the Island'.

It means the first race will now take place at 12pm.

All roads around the course are now closed (10am) and will remain so until further notice.

The new schedule is as follows:

  • 12pm - Supersport TT Race 2 over a shorter two-lap distance
  • 1:30pm - Rutter Legacy Lap
  • 3pm - Supertwin TT Race 2 - also over two laps
  • 4:30pm - BMW Classic 85th Anniversary parade lap
  • 5:45pm - Senior TT Race - to be held over four laps instead of six

The Superstock TT Race 2 was cancelled yesterday, due to 'a range of operational issues, including rider and team workload and post-race parc ferme requirements'.

Roads around the course will reopen no later than 9.30pm tonight.
