Too soon, I can't see anything changing worldwide by the end of the year.
Perhaps give it 'til end of February would be a better shout.
I think we all live in hope, though.  Crossfingers

RE: TT decision 'in next couple of months'
I was at  Olivers Mount Gold Cup meet a few weeks ago. And the feeling there was it wouldn't go ahead. Teams wanted a decision by Christmas before they started spending money building bikes.
With a lot of businesses struggling at the moment I wounder if the sponsorship money will be there for a lot of teams to go racing.
I hope it was just talk and it dose go ahead. I will be keeping my fingers crossed.

I'd be extremely surprised if it went ahead next year especially if they're making the decision before Christmas because the signs at the moment aren't very good as most countries seem to be recording huge spikes in new cases.

Personally I'm starting to fear for the future of the TT/Manx in general if what Dominic Herbertson said on Chasin' the Racin' last week is true.

It's not looking good at the minute and you can understand the business's relying on the TT and Manx for there revenue but its going to be a tall order over a million people have died of the virus including my sister we need the vaccine as quickly as possible,
Long live the TT and the Manx

I assume Covid-19 will be around forever, as are colds/flu/pneumonia etc, then at some stage the IOM govt will have to decide to wait for a vacine or keep the borders closed and I doubt a vacine will be available prior to 2021 TT.
