Southern 100 Racing promoters of the Blackford Financial Services Pre-TT Classic Road Races 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 on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 24th, 25th & 26th May.

The airspace above the Southern 100 Course can get busy with activity of aircraft taking off and, landing both during, before and after the racing or practising take place.

The Colas Billown Course is also located very close to the Isle of Man Airport.

Drones can also pose a serious distraction and threat to riders. Race marshals will immediately report any drones to race control. An unauthorised operation of a drone may result in a race or practice being stopped.

Those convicted of breaching the regulations face a fine of up to £10,000.

A similar restriction will be in place during the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company Southern 100 Road Races on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 8th, 9th, 10th & 11th July 2024.
