Organisers of May’s Pre-TT Classic road races on the Southern 100 course in Billown are reminding people that the area will be a ‘no drone zone’ for the duration of May’s event.

The 4.25-mile Billown Course is located within the airport’s existing ‘no-fly’ zone for drones, but the meeting’s organisers, Southern 100 Racing, are keen to emphasise the point: ‘We would respectfully remind all race fans, visitors, spectators, and the general public, that the Colas Billown Course is designated as a no drone zone by the Isle of Man Civil Aviation Administration for the duration of the 2024 races which will be taking place over the weekend of May 24-26.

‘The airspace above the course can get busy with activity of aircraft taking off and landing both during, before and after the event’s racing and practise sessions.’
