No practice

It was too wet for practice this evening and its hard to know how the weather will be for the 500 classic tomorrow,,,


In order to attend all the Roadrace meetings something has to give along the way and sadly this time the wee TL that served me well had to be sacrificed at the Manx alter,hope its as good for the new owner as it was for me and I got to meet another bike nut !!! its a win win situation,

Richie report

Our man is 5th fastest with a 105.78 lap its is just so exciting to watch the times coming up on,,,a great evenings practice all the Irish lads flying


Richie should get out in proper practice this evening around seven o clock,I watch using the eyespy webcams I would put up a link but the links never work for me,start with the Glenvine cam then Kirkmicheal cam and lastly the Ramsey cam,also I have Manx radio playing in the background this is as close as we can get to being there,if we switch from webcam to webcam we can follow the riders on their lap,Hopefully all riders get around safely and enjoy the practice,,,,,,,

They were that relaxed they must have known that Guy would dominate the meeting !!!

Richie report

Richie had his first taste of lapping the mountain circuit this evening, he was keeping tight behind the instructor and would have got a few good lines,we were able to watch him on the eye spy webcams,I am looking forward to seeing getting going proper with his smooth style the circuit should suit him well ,ride safe

Sign of the times


This may be the last time I will get to see Cam racing,best of luck to him in the future,,

Big Thanks

A real big thank you to Slice of Buff for looking after us at the Ulster ,making breakfast and showing us a great night in Belfast now our favourite city we owe you one lad !!


The fingymoto corporation has decided to branch out into four wheeled motorsport with a major sponsorship deal signed for the Dromahair Soapbox derby we were rewarded with a first place and the promise of a pint well done Beaverbro,,,


A lot of racers shined at the Ulster but Conor stood out for me and just got better and better as the Day went on,,,

Sounds good

Like I said it sounds good but didn,t finish practice or a race Poor Gary Johnston must have been pissed off,,,oh and it looks good too !!


At the Ulster there is no outrunning the law !!
