Following the upheavals of 2020 and 2021, the Isle of Man government department for business and the Manx Motor Cycle Club have announced that they are reviewing both the Manx Grand Prix and Classic TT events from the 13th. August 2021. So far, no mention of any other IOM event under review has been made. They call it âa collaborative root and branch reviewâ of the two motorcycle races.
The Manx Grand Prix is ââabout to celebrate 100 years of inviting amateur racers to test their mettle on the TT Mountain Course in 2023. Meanwhile, the Classic TT has only been around since 2013 – but of course motorcycles classics and the love of racing go hand in hand.
What is this review about? He seeks to find out what works and what does not on just about every aspect of both events. From intra-organizational assessment to impact on the local community, both organizations take this time to step back and determine what is working well and what should be improved.
“The world has changed and continues to change in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and we must be prepared to adapt as we bring these events back to 2022 after a two-year hiatus to ensure their future success and sustainability” , Manx Motor Cycle Club president Peter Maddocks said in a statement.
If you would like to make your contribution, both organizations have created an online survey to record your comments. It only asks three questions as of August 16, 2021: your email address, your general position in the world, and whether you’ve ever visited any of the events in person. There is also an optional open comment box asking for your detailed comments on both events. Comments up to 2000 characters are allowed here.
When can we expect to hear what the two bodies have found? Currently, both organizations plan to announce any changes that may impact the events of 2022 by the end of 2021. Of course, as with everything in the world right now, we hope that that’s true, but also take it with a grain of salt.
