Department of Infrastructure requests commitment from Rally Isle of Man organisers

Tuesday, 24 July 2018

The Department of Infrastructure is working with the organisers of Rally Isle of Man to review a range of issues in relation to the planning of the 2018 event.

A meeting took place on Thursday 19 July between DoI officials and members of the organising team.

Following productive discussions, a series of conditions have now been established. The event organisers have been asked to demonstrate a commitment to the conditions, and enable further talks to take place around planning the event, which is due to take place September 13-15.

Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer MHK said:

‘The Department is fully supportive of motorsport events being staged on Manx roads, but safety must be the primary consideration.

‘Events such as these have to be well-run and anyone wishing to hold an event on closed roads must demonstrate they are capable of doing so, while ensuring residents and businesses are kept fully informed of plans at the earliest opportunity.’
