Sadly not like the TT, but in the past there has usually been a program on ITV4 about the race week and highlights, not sure when

Cheers,

I will be going over next Thursday for a 1&1/2 weeks.
Going over on my Yas1. She looks Daft fully loaded
With camping gear etc. But it will be a laugh.
Here's hoping for some of the good weather we are overdue.

Great, a few heading over then. Anybody heading to Jurby for the festival? If you haven't been it's well worth a visit  ;)

Hustler, I will look out for the YAS1!

Fingers crosssed for a nice bit of weather.

Cheers,

I'm envious.  Went to the Classic for the first time last year having done the regular TT a few times and had a brilliant time.  Have fun gents  :D

It will be well worth the effort and time.
You can be at Ballaugh bridge and watch the bikes jump and also good fun if you get any laps in,then there is a backroad that can take you down to the Sulby crossing and watch the bikes come past the Sulby Glen Hotel(great home made food here  ;))and you will never see the big bikes with their engines wide open as long any where else and be stunned how fast and close they are,then another backroad down to parliament square to watch the last of the late brakers come through the square and out towards the ramsay hairpin.
All very close mileagewise and easily done in a afternoon when the the racing is actually going on without thrashing about.
Something everyone should experience in their lifetime if possible before nanny state wraps us all in bubblewrap.
You have a great time,envious? Cause I bloody am ! :) ;)  [ Specified attachment is not available ] [ Specified attachment is not available ]
