STATEMENT : reg. Claire Lomas lap of the TT course.

“The Manx Motor Cycle club were very keen to support the remarkable Claire Lomas when she approached us about her ambitious attempt to lap the TT Mountain Course on a solo motorcycle. However, we have concerns about her level of experience in Motorcycling to date and the demanding nature of the challenge that she has set herself.

The TT Mountain Course has varying terrain and over 227 corners – it is both a major mental and physical challenge – and we feel that based on her development sessions with rider coaches, this year’s event is too soon for her to complete the challenge safely. As race organisers we are duty bound to act responsibly and have therefore advised Claire that we cannot permit the lap this year.”

“We are delighted that Claire has been able to investigate an alternative challenge – through contact with BSB organisers for which we wish her the best of luck and we will continue to maintain a dialogue with Claire as she builds experience in riding a motorcycle.”
