Cape Breton TT - On Again, Off Again...

Well, it would seem that The Cape Bretton Festival of Speed TT
has finally been put down, despite the valiant effort of the organisers, the provincial government has pulled the plug. Something is amiss with the TT, as the powers-that-be had originally vowed their support for the race, only to step away last week.

It's been a bumpy ride for organisers, as in the past few months they've also had to deal with the CMA withdrawing their sanctioning for the event. As I'd mentioned before in a previous post, a street race on Cape Breton roads would be almost suicidal as racers would have to negotiate their way around potholes and frost heaves! Maybe it should've been a motocross race ;-)
