ISLE OF MAN CLASSIC TT  - SENIOR 500CC

The Classic TT Week on the Isle of Man has not started well for the Egli Racing Team.
The first trainings had to be cancelled either because of bad weather, lack of Marshalls or because of red flag. So we only had the chance to test the new, completely revised bike in Jurby at the beginning of the week. There we were confronted with a piston defect. Unfortunately the last two remaining test possibilities in Jurby were cancelled, because of the weather conditions two additional afternoon sessions were inserted on the track.
Conclusion: The Egli Racing Team has withdrawn its participation. The Mountain Course is not and will not be a test track.
As in previous years, we made ourselves useful at the TT Marshalls – this time the two of us (Alexander & Feli) – especially for the two afternoon trainings/qualifyings up to 50 Marshalls were needed…. every volunteer is welcome and we can only recommend a commitment because you can experience the event from close up and in places that are otherwise often not accessible.
The 2019 EGLI Racing Team:
