NEW TT SCOREBOARD DELAYED

In a move that might suggest Manx authorities aren’t wholly committed to reviving the TT races next year, the Isle of Man Government Treasury has decided that a “business case” for replacing the historic TT scoreboard (which was demolished in November 2020) isn’t strong enough for a new installation in time for TT 2022.

This revelation came from Rob Collister MHK, the IoM Government Department of Enterprise politician currently responsible for motorsport on the Island. He says only a temporary structure opposite the TT Grandstand on Glencrutchery Road’s start-finish straight will be possible for the planned revival event. Judicious hedging of bets?

Evidently fresh proposals have been submitted by the Department of Enterprise to Treasury ahead of its 2022 budget, and the new scoreboard construction should be ready for TT 2023, allegedly.
