There will also be reaction and analysis from some of the TT’s top names, as well as the line-up of the TT’s expanding team of TV presenters.

Looks like it's going to be very busy in 2023 at the TT more race days and only 2 rest days but what about cancelling due to bad weather or mist on the mountain how are they going to get round that I just hope everything works out OK for them.

Yeah I had similar thoughts and concerns about the weather but I guess you have to plan regardless and I'm sure the organisers have a backup plan if the weather is not favourable.
My other concern is the lack of accommodation. With the event getting more and more popular I do hope that there will be an increase in b&b's/hotels/homestay etc.
Overall though, really exciting news.

I think it's going to be really "interesting", but don't forget 2023 is only a proposal & still has to go to Public consultation.

Senior race day on a Saturday!! - The very idea!!

I wounder if they have considered the Marshalls. They will only get 2 days brake if all goes to plan and they will need to stay to the Sunday or at best late Saturday. I think they may need a extra insentive to get the numbers they require to run the races.

I agree with all above my main worry that they are turning the tt into a cash cow ,and that they do not care about care about the real fans

As has been mentioned, unless the Marshal are on board, it isn't going to happen.

Very positive sounding changes. Just weeks ago there were rumours that the "anti TT brigade" were reducing the event down to a single long weekend or even cancelling it all together - and now we get more racing and year round online content to build up the excitement. A great show of commitment to the event's future.
