A government statement last week said Mr Hussain was not prepared to sacrifice a rival event in Paris during TT fortnight in order to be at the TT, leaving organisers with no option but to organise the event – now called TT Zero – themselves. But Mr Hussain has told the Examiner he is extremely sorry not to be involved.
Thanking those who had supported his enterprise last year in the inaugural event, Mr Hussain added: ‘I can confirm the question of Paris or issues of financial packages were not factors in the decision-making and am disappointed that it is being suggested so. ‘We remain surprised about the decision as we did everything possible to make this happen.’ IOMToday
