STATEMENT ISSUED (but not too bad)
Sorry, but that's what the official headline says, never good to see it, but this time, not as bad as you may think! 

ACU Events Ltd, race organiser of the Isle of Man TT Races, can confirm that Jake Lowther, passenger in sidecar outfit number 7, has been excluded from the 2023 event following a positive drugs test.
Lowther, who has competed in 10 previous Sidecar TT Races, tested positive for a banned substance in a random drugs test carried out as part of the event’s drug and alcohol screening protocols.
The matter has now been passed on to the Auto Cycle Union (ACU), governing body for motorcycle sport in the UK, to carry out their formal judicial process.
The Isle of Man TT Races and the ACU share a strict zero-tolerance policy for the presence of drugs and alcohol for officials and competitors during an event period. As per their anti-doping policy, the ACU may impose a suspension on competition for individuals found to be contravening these rules.

RE: STATEMENT ISSUED (but not too bad)
The ACU statement with a picture a Alan Founds outfit on the front was the first thing I saw when I got up and logged on this morning. Appreciate it's not really a laughing matter but couldn't help having a bit of a chuckle about it - more in relief than anything.

Their FB page says that they'll be out tonight so it sounds like a replacement has been rustled up. So hopefully not a complete disaster.
