Isle Of Wight to hold road race from 2021
The date is set for October 14th-18th 2021
Everyone associates motorcycle road racing with the Isle Of Man and the Irish road races which are steeped in history and tradition. There are a few smaller events such as Oliver's Mount in Scarborough as well as Aberdare Park, however both of these pale in comparison to the mighty TT.
The Isle Of Wight has council has agreed to allow a 12.4 mile section of the island to be turned into a road racing circuit, slightly longer than the North West 200 and with a 200mph+ section down military road. TT course clerk Gary Thomson has been recruited to develop the new circuit and make sure safety is paramount for riders and spectators alike.
