Road Racing | Classic TT 2021 Cancelled due to Covid-19

It’s been confirmed today that the Classic TT presented by Bennetts has been cancelled due to the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19

IN news that is hardly surprising, the 2021 edition of the Classic TT has been officially cancelled by the organisers.

The Classic TT was hoped to be one of the few times racing on the Isle of Man would take place this year, after the TT Races were cancelled before Christmas.

Sadly, it seems that the uncertainty that forced the TT to cancel is also what is forcing the Classic TT to admit defeat in the face of Covid-19.

Like the cancellation of Southern 100 races that we reported on earlier, part of the problem for the TT organisers is finding enough medics, marshals, race officials, and volunteers that are vital to the events running.

Paul Phillips, TT Business Development Manager, commented:

“Obviously this is yet another disappointing announcement for us to have to make, but as with the cancellation of the 2021 TT Races, it was important that an early decision was made to give clarity and certainty to the thousands of visitors and individuals that come together for the Classic TT.

“A two-year break from racing on the Island is not what anyone would have wanted, but our Motorsport Team has been hard at work to ensure that the TT and Classic TT return stronger than ever in 2022 and we look forward to sharing some of these developments in the coming weeks and months.”
