Early Rush on Classic Entries
Regulations and Entry Forms for the 2022 Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic Road Races were delayed due to circumstances beyond the club’s control, however once they were made available via the official website, the response has already seen123 entries received from riders wanting to race on the Colas Billown Course on Friday, Saturday, and Monday 27th, 28th & 30th May.
The Senior (500cc), Junior (350cc) and Unlimited (1100cc) are proving the most popular races at present with 18; 25 & 16 entries received, whilst the Sidecar grid half full.
Race Secretary, George Peach said: ‘Although entries for the Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic Road Races don’t close until the end of March, it is an encouraging start to receive so many entries within the first ten days of entries being available.
‘The Classics have always been popular on the Billown Course since they were introduced in 1988 and they provide some excellent, close racing not for the feint-hearted and we look forward to seeing a full Paddock once again this year, as seems likely from the initial response.’
Classes catered for this year are like the successful format of previous years, 500cc; 350cc, 250cc; 350cc & 250cc Single Cylinder; Junior Superbikes; Senior Superbikes and Sidecars, whilst the Unlimited class has been increased to 1100cc and a 125cc Post Classic Class has been added.
