Following the collapse of a deal to promote the 2017 TT races, a London-based promoter has started legal action against the Manx government

The government discontinued its current independent promoter tender process for the TT and Classic TT races on Monday.

The company, Vision Nine, said it had undergone significant reputational damage as a result of the decision.

CEO Julian Topham said: "What's become abundantly apparent is either there was no intention of completing the tender or the [government department] did not have the authority to run this tender.

"Either of which has meant we've suffered significant reputational damage through this process and this needs to be a warning to other businesses [to] proceed with extreme caution if they are intending to try and work with the Isle of man government."

A government spokesman said the Department of Economic Development will continue to work with the other government departments and independent contractors to deliver motorsport events in 2017.

The Manx government has promoted the TT since it began in 1907.
