The story for the 2017 Isle of Man TT might be the weather, as another day of competition has scraped because of heavy rain.

So after consulting with the Meteorological Office, Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson made the decision that no racing or qualifiers will take place today, due to continued bad weather.

With us now towards the end of the TT fortnight, this means some tough decisions for the TT organizers in order to keep as much racing and qualifying sessions on the docket as possible.

Something had to give though, so the Monster Energy Supersport TT Race 2 has been canceled.

The TT Zero race has been moved to Friday, ahead of the Sure Sidecar Race 2 and the PokerStars Senior TT. Friday’s schedule of events is below:

  • 08.45 – Road Closed Barrule Park, Ramsey to Bungalow
  • 09.00 – Road Closed Bungalow to Creg Ny Baa
  • 09.30 – Rest of the TT course closed
  • 10.15 – SES TT Zero (1 lap)
  • 11.15 – Sure Sidecar Race 2 (3 laps)
  • 13.15 – PokerStars Senior TT (6 laps)
  • 16.00 – Roads open except Mountain Section
  • 17.00 – Roads open around the course
