Electronic Red Flag System to be tested next week

Thu, 11 Aug 2022

The electronic red flag system will be tested next Friday.

Organisers of the Manx Grand Prix will be carrying out an on-course test between 7am and 8am.

The electronic flags were introduced to the TT Mountain Course as part of the Safety Management System to act as an additional measure running alongside the existing marshal’s red flag system. The electronic system enables the Clerk of the Course to immediately raise further rapid awareness that all racing should immediately halt helping draw further attention to marshals, officials and riders around the course

Gary Thompson MBE BEM, MGP Clerk of The Course, ACU Events Ltd: “Whilst the large square displays do not look like traffic signals and the organisers have tried to select a time that will cause minimal distraction to road users, we wanted to notify the public in advance that these tests will be undertaken on Friday 19th August at 7am and to be aware that these do not require any action whilst roads are open. As always I am acutely aware of any disruption that may be faced by the public and again thank everyone for their understanding whilst we continue preparations for the start of the Manx Grand Prix."
