I believe it said you have to have a FIM license. They have the entry rules on the site I think. I was thinking the same about the cold but best I can tell the average high is in the low 60's for that time of year. Looks like a scenic area.

Its Jan 13th, I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia and my bike is parked right outside. We've had snow twice this year so far. I didnt ride much in DEC but brought the bike out for a bit this month. Snow usually falls here from dec to march. This year is unseasonably warm for some reason. Sydney is about 5 hours northeast of where I live. They usually get more snow then us, but not in Sept. lol, we arent all Eskimo's ya know, EH!! :D haha

Good effort in trying to keep the isle of man alive albeit in canada. But before the isle of man does die off i think everyone should go and experience it for yourselves. dont worry about the money the memories will live on forever in you mind. I am from the isle of man and have raced in the Manx GP myself in 2005 and i think that it is something you just cant miss.

Again good effort for coming up with your own version.

HELP! Or this will not happen...

Cape Breton Festival of Speed needs help
The organizers of Cape Breton's Festival of Speed needs your voice. It seems that the Premier of Nova Scotia, Hon. Rodney McDonald, needs to hear from the motorycling community about what an historical event this is. I am not sure if he is a motorcyclist himself so I think we may need to tell him how important it is.

Whether or not you plan to attend the Cape Breton (and whether or not the organizers are able to make their ongoing efforts successful for this year), please take 5 minutes to let the Premier know what this event means to YOU and/or the motorcycling community. Assume that they are not motorcyclists and have no idea what a significant event this is.

The organizers are doing everything they can but this is not an easy task. Anyone involved with trying to organize an event like this, especially for the first time, knows how difficult it is to get through rules, politics, finances, fundraising, who to talk to etc.

Please keep letters positive and open. Include your name, contact info and country. Let them know that across the nation, motorcyclists are hearing about this and are excited.

http://www.gov.ns.ca/premier/contact.asp

Please forward this url to your own motorcycling communities and networks. We need to add our voice to the efforts of the Cape Breton organizers.
