IOM TT Cancelled17/03/2020
The 2020 Isle of Man TT has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak, the island’s chief minister has confirmed.
It has wreaked havoc on the sporting world, with numerous events from Formula 1, MotoGP, WEC all getting cancelled or postponed as a result.
Recently the Isle of Man government insisted preparations for TT 2020 were underway, with the virus not currently impacting the event – which was due to take place from 30 May to 13 June.
However, with the situation continuing and it thought only to worsen, the decision was taken on Monday evening to cancel TT 2020.
It is the first time since 2001 – during the foot and mouth disease outbreak – that the TT will not go ahead.
