The Isle of Man TT’s Tuesday schedule has been cancelled as rain and poor weather conditions return.

With the opening three races completed on Monday after ongoing delays and cancellations due to bad conditions during practice week, heavy rain and low cloud has forced a postponement to Tuesday’s schedule including the planned RL360 Superstock TT race plus qualifying for Sidecars, Lightweight and TT Zero.

A revised schedule for Wednesday will be released later today. Tomorrow is set to host the second Monster Energy Supersport TT race, the TT Zero race and the Bennetts Lightweight race.

“Today’s schedule cancelled due to poor weather,” Gary Thompson, Isle of Man TT Clerk of the Course, tweeted. “Low cloud/fog mist and rain for most of the day, sometimes heavy, sometimes light.

“No chance for roads to dry. Heli ops severely disrupted/not possible. Revised schedule for tomorrow to be issued by 1.00pm.”

The 2019 Isle of Man TT has been truncated by poor weather conditions with just two days of practice able to run during the opening week which triggered the delay of the first races from Saturday (June 1st) to Monday (June 3rd).

Peter Hickman claimed victory in a red-flagged RST Superbike TT for Smiths Racing BMW following a tragic incident in which Daley Mathison lost his life.

Ben and Tom Birchall secured a sixth consecutive Locate.im Sidecar TT victory in the second race of the day, with Lee Johnston taking his maiden TT triumph by winning the opening Monster Energy Supersport race which was ended at the end of Lap 2 due to rain.
