Investing in the Future 17 January 2006

The TT Co-ordinating Committee has been working hard to ensure this year’s races are a great success. Focus has not only been on the high quality of racing, but also the event’s infrastructure and most importantly safety.

Significant investment is planned for TT 2006 and beyond with the regeneration of the grandstand and the implementation of the latest race technologies and safety products.

As with all motorsport, safety has to be of utmost importance for race organisers, and nowhere is this more apparent than at the Isle of Man TT Races. The TT Co-ordinating Committee is ensuring that everything that can be done is being done to improve safety around the famous circuit with improvements to the course and the marshalling of the races.

In the summer of 2005 an in-depth circuit study was carried out on behalf of the TT Co-ordinating Committee in conjunction with TT competitors and the Isle of Man Department of Transport. Following this study, a number of safety improvements will be made. These will include the relocation of some of the ‘roadside furniture’, the construction of run-off areas, and the introduction of the highly successful Recticel Safeguard barriers.

The overall aim of the circuit study will eventually see all straw bales replaced around the TT Circuit and the Safeguard barriers will also protect many new areas. This process is already underway, and a minimum of £30,000 worth of new barriers and pole protectors will be in place around the TT Circuit in time for TT 2006.
