IOM TT Racing | Safety first

IOM TT racing comes with some inherent risks, and we all know what they are. Unfortunately, those ?inherent? risks are one of the things that make the event such a spectacle. In fact, it would be nearly impossible to mitigate those risks to any real degree, without also diluting the TT?s appeal. Today?s society is so risk-averse though, that if something isn?t done, the pressure to ban IOM TT racing will eventually be too great, and we?ll see an end to a tradition that?s over a century old. That?s why the TT organisers have employed a new Safety Management System. They?ve spent the last two years (while the TT hasn?t been running) compiling some massive risk assessments. Their aim: to separate the ?inherent risks? from the ?unnecessary risks?. And to make a plan to stamp out any unnecessary (and minimise any inherent) ones.

So in 2022, the IOM TT will look ever so slightly different. A few of the tweaks will be noticeable, but most won?t. The idea is for the TT to maintain its ?DNA? but be safer, in every way possible, for everyone involved. So here are a few things that the SMS team will be putting in place for the next Isle of Man TT races.

Behind the Scenes

The IOM TT is a massive event, that takes an army of people to deliver. During the TT fortnight, you?ll find the generals of that army in the TT control tower at the Grandstand. And it?s a slightly complicated affair; the owners of the TT races subcontract the running of the event to ACU Events Limited, who do so under a license from the ACU; which is a separate entity from ACU Events Limited. The SMS have called for greater clarity around roles and responsibilities of all the organisers, and better communication between organisers and everyone else involved. Poor communication led to a horrendous accident in 2018 when Steve Mercer nearly lost his life, and that?s precisely the kind of unnecessary risk the SMS are aiming to avoid in future.
Accident investigation is something that Formula 1 is really good at. If someone crashes, they want to know why. If someone gets badly hurt, they look at ways to avoid it in the future. That?s why they are constantly mandating new safety equipment to the cars and the kit. To help drive TT races to a safer future, post-accident investigations will be carried out, to find out why they happened and work out whether they can be avoided in the future.

The Mountain Course

There are some big changes to course safety coming in 2022. First of all, as well as marshals waving flags to alert the riders of a race stoppage, there will be a new digital red flag system. You might have seen red lights being used to stop MotoGP or F1 races; if you have, you?ll recognise the new system at the TT, which is from the same supplier as those used at Grand Prix level (cars and bikes). It?ll mean the Clerk of the Course can immediately bring the race to a stop, for every competitor.

There is also a big roll-out of CCTV cameras round the circuit....
