TT gets extra padding

Recticel barriers a-plenty

More Recticel fencing has been purchased and will be in place for the 2011 TT Races.

It is estimated that this latest Recticel investment of £60,000 will replace approximately 2,000 straw bales currently in use and is part of an overall investment of over £350,000 in Recticel over the last five years.

The move follows a comprehensive review of the course that included consultation between riders and representatives of the ACU, as well as the Motorsport team.

As well as reviewing the equipment, the team has also discussed the barrier locations, with many of the riders consulted feeling that the development of machinery has lead to changing requirements.

The fencing will be strategically placed around the circuit and will be used for both the TT Races and Manx Grand Prix.
