The Southern 100 Club are very disappointed that the
Department of Tourism and Leisure have decided that they would not fund the 125cc and 250cc Billown TT Races in 2010 at the cost of £18K, a miniscule part of their TT Budget.
As this would have been the third year of the event with
entries and interest growing year on year and crowds of over 10,000 at last years event, it has come as a major blow to the Club.
However Southern 100 Racing has already been in touch with a potential major sponsor with regards to continuing
racing at Billown at the end of the TT Festival, an event which has been run since 1991 and hopes to make an
announcement in the media in the next couple of weeks.
