IoM TT: 2020 Isle of Man TT Races Cancelled over #COVID-19

TT 2020 CANCELLED

The Council of Ministers has taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Isle of Man TT Races which were due to take place between 30th May and 13th June.

The decision has been taken following confirmation that the Island has stepped up its measures to protect the population against the pandemic.

Laurence Skelly MHK, Minister for Enterprise, commented:

“The decision to cancel has not been taken lightly and all options including postponement and delaying the decision have been considered in detail. Representatives from the Isle of Man Government will now discuss the implications with all relevant businesses, stakeholders and individuals affected by this cancellation, which it recognises will be significant.

With the visitor restriction in place for the foreseeable future we wanted to make the decision now to give businesses, visitors and all involved stakeholders time to manage the impact going forward. The Isle of Man, and the Isle of Man TT, are faced with unique challenges regarding COVID-19 and making this decision will provide certainty to teams, competitors, sponsors and stakeholders of the event and to visitors across the globe.

The decision also aims to provide reassurance for our residents and healthcare professionals that the health and well-being of the Isle of Man’s residents is the single biggest priority and focus of this Government.”

The Department for Enterprise will, in due course, issue full refunds for all Official Tickets including grandstand tickets, hospitality packages and other Official Event Experiences purchased through iomttraces.com.

The Department’s Motorsport Team is continuing to work with the Manx Motor Cycle Club for the successful delivery of the 2020 Classic TT Races and Manx Grand Prix which is due to begin on 22nd August 2020 and will continue to review the delivery of the event against prevailing global conditions.

The Department for Enterprise and Treasury are looking at various options to support businesses affected by the cancellation and will be introducing a range of support measures, the first of which will be announced in Tynwald tomorrow.

Alexa, show 'Vintage Vettel' 👀 🍿 🤩 ... See Less

Comment on Facebook

Back in the days where Vettel dominated in the best car and Hamilton made mistakes by pushing his car too hard. A mirror image of the new formula one era. Difference being Vettel fans had a bit more class to them 🤷‍♂️

I love vintage vettel but also modern vettel is strong

In 2011 Vettel was unstoppable and Hamilton was struggling with many mistakes.

Someone has soooo much to thank to Adrian Newey...

Haters at every step. Racing at his best I don't care who is in the car.... There are a few drivers on the grid today that with a proper car are just unbeatable. And Seb is one of them. The guy is a 4 time world champion and he is lucky enough to drive for Ferrari.....he has his own page in the history of this sport.

Sebastian Vettel has to be regarded as one of the best F1 drivers of all time

The noise produced by the exhaust blown diffuser really was awful, no better than the sound of Traction Control really

Always found Vettel to be the most shakable driver. Put under pressure he'll always either panic and make a mistake or will try a desperate move causing contact.

Forza Vettel, all coming races I hope to see you along side Max. Fair battle between the two best current drivers.

Like a wise man once said, “You don't become a four-time world champion by chance." I wanna see Seb in a Mercedes before he retires. Must be pretty scary.

You have to leave DA space! All DA time you have to leave DA space!

Surviving an encounter with a wild spaniard in an italian red car at the Temple of Speed. 👍

This is one-off, vintage Vettel is Malaysia 2013!

Ferrari było jest siła i prędkość a Redbull to świetna aerodynamika i prowadzenie. Myślę że to główny powód że Vettel w Ferrari nie daje radę.

Wheres this vettel? He was a monster in redbull!

Vettel at that time could be called Pilot. Today I affectionately call him Drifter or Spinner ..

Imagine if he tried that nowadays, he'd probably crash into the back of Alonso & smash into the barriers.

Just shows how massive he is and how he lives rent free in everyone's heads that it's immediately inundated with comments, be it in awe or jealousy

この頃のV8とマシンバランスは、類を見ないほど圧倒的だった。

Vettel needs to finish his career back at redbull

And Vettel got penalized the next year for the same move on Alonso at the same corner.

THIS is vintage vettel

By far the fastest car on the grid and still he struggled to beat alonso on certain tracks, driver matters. Most overrated champion ever.

Well to be honest , if u put Vettel in a Mercedes, u'll have to put up a video with a caption, "vintage Hamilton,which fans miss" !!!

Vintage Vettel? I must have missed the part where he had a spin 🤣🤣🤣

I watched the race, he was great and keep his cool, great future , it is so much more fun to have an American to cheer for

Great young man and Hopkins will be a good coach for the team.

Saw my first moto race and Joe Robert's started on the pole in Qatar! Was a blast but wish MotoGP could have been there. Maybe the Texas race will be the next one.

Us American fans can only hope. It’s been a long time since the golden age of American riders that I grew up watching.

Gosh, that livery is amazing. LOVE the helmet!

There is an American in super sport.

It's time to rise again USA 😀

Wish ya was racing at home this weekend!!!

All the Best💥..

J’espère qu’on va le revoir sur les podiums cette année après ce démarrage !

Dynamic duo!!!!

Long line ?

Good america moto gp

Moto GP needs Americans riders like Americans riders need motoGP. So happy if you can get strong again. Strong,brave and funny. We need you.

❤️🤍💙

Je m'implique moins ds ka moto2 que ds le MotoGP classe 1000 mais j'aime regarder de la moto3 jusk'a MotoGP sauf que trop de pilotes sur le plateau moto2 je retient pas tout forcément merci Steve Ragaud

La famille roberts Grand nom de la MotoGP du père kenny Robert puis kenny Robert jr champion du monde avec Suzuki et maintena t le fiston! En lui espérant la même carrière que ses aînés!

If the season would get shorten this year. I do believe this would be a great chance for Joe to capitalize on it. If Quartararo & Lecouna made it. He could do it too. But first, I can't wait to see him polish a few mistakes he & his team had in the first race. 😎

Use the front very late along with the rear you moron

Right on! We’re with you and watching.

Hate it when you do this, he has 1 podium and now all eyes are on him so he is gunna feel a mountain of pressure and if he fails that's the end of his career you guys got to stop making a big deal so early all the time what if he can't take the pressure of everyone focused on him 😒
