Regulations and Entry Forms for the 2020 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 and sent by post to all of last year’s competitors, the response has already seen 99 entries received from riders wanting to race on the Colas Billown Course on Friday, Saturday 29th, 30th May and Monday 1st June.
The Senior (500cc), Junior (350cc) and Singles (350cc & 250cc) are proving the most popular races at present with 19; 22 & 18 entries received.
Race Secretary, George Peach said: ‘Although entries for the Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic Road Races don’t close until the end of April, 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 early response.’
Classes catered for this year are similar to the format of previous few years, 500cc; 350cc, 250cc; 850cc; 350cc & 250cc Single Cylinder; Junior Superbikes; Senior Superbikes and Sidecars.
