UK Governing Bodies cancel all events

The two main motorcycling governing bodies, the ACU and for Scotland, the Scottish ACU have both announced statements covering the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The Scottish ACU stole a march on their English counterparts by being first to cancel all motorcycle events on 16th March until at least 31st May, with the ACU a day later, cancelling all events until 30th April 2020.

This means that the annual Scottish Six Days and Isle of Man TT races are now cancelled with no chance of them being run until 2021.

The governing bodies really had no choice, due to the global clamping down of transport, travelling, working arrangements, it was inevitable that there would be casualties for world-wide motorcycle sport.
