Can I suggest this thread is closed. The question in its title has been definitively answered - it ain’t happening - so perhaps a new thread - TT 2022, will it, won’t it? - should be started instead.

Looks like the new thread has happened

Unless our petrol heads become more enthusiastic towards TT Zero then road racing for bikes is surely soon to end?

Not much to get enthusiastic about, watching washing machines on wheels that can't manage much more than a lap is hardly inspiring. Perhaps the younger generations will take to it as they seem easily pleased by technology with no soul?

The steam car drivers said much the same in 1906:D

And what they did wrong with TT zero was chase speed rather than endurance. Should have made it a 3 lap race to push the manufacturers to develop that aspect, which is far more useful in the real world than lapping at over 100mph

A potential 200mph washing machine wizzing around public roads. Seems inspiring to me.

Me dad used to go on about cars losing their soul once they dumped the starting handle.

Current bikes have lost their 'soul' anyway. Tappets and squish zones or whatever etc are all handled by a computer.

It's all relative.

Yep, even if that means a battery change in the pits.
