Race Marshals
19th February 2015
As we start to look forward to the 2015 racing season I'd like to pay tribute to all those who volunteer to marshal the road racing events we all enjoy.

In my experience a more cheerful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable set of race fans you'd be hard pushed to find. And of course without the Orange Army and the dedicated band of well trained travelling marshals there would be no racing - FACT

Each race or practice session needs a minimum of 500 marshals, so if you'd like to get closer to the action and participate in the greatest road racing the world has to offer why not enquire about signing up at the TTMA Website
Dan Keen
08th February 2015
I've just heard the news that one of the most talented, fastest and determined road racers the Isle of Man has ever produced is (through no fault of his own) potentially without a ride for the 2015 road racing season.

Dan finished a terrific road racing season in 2014 as the Irish Superbike champion and really showed what he is capable of with the right package of machinery and team support.

The night this photo was taken he achieved his fastest ever circuit of the Mountain course at an amazing 129.36mph (17th fastest - ever).

There is plenty more to come from this personable young man and I for one sincerely hope that a ride worthy of his talent can be arranged in good time for start of the forthcoming season.
Image Collections
27th October 2014
I often get asked about images from a variety of events that are not on the website. This is because I am restricted in the number of images I can display on the site.

In order to help I have now created several collections of 2014 racing images on Flickr as follows :-

Road Racing 2014

Andreas Racing Association 2014

Motocross 2014

If you see an image on Flickr that you're interested in just drop me an email (robin.hynes@gmail.com). I'll need the title & date of the event/album and the image reference number.

Also let me know whether you'd like a digital copy (prices start from as little £5 each) or a print. If you need a print then let me know the size(s) and quantity required. The list below will give you an idea of print costs.

Examples of print sizes and costs :-
    7" x 5" £6
      9" x 6" £8
        12" x 8" £12
          A3 £20

          Other sizes can be arranged, and bear in mind there is a significant discount for several prints going to the same address as this saves on P&P costs.
          End of Season Round-up
          22nd October 2014
          Last weekend's ARA endurance race has brought the local racing season to an end. Its always a good fun, but hotly contested event and this year enjoyed bright, but very windy conditions.

          Its mid-October and the weather is definitely turning autumnal, but what a great summer we've had. We had good conditions for most race & practice sessions for the TT, Southern 100 and the Festival of Motorcycling that includes the MGP. The conditions made for some fantastic racing.

          A few highlights include Bruce Anstey setting a new Mountain Course outright lap record ...

          Michael Dunlop winning the Senior TT ...

          and Peter Hickman breaking records to become the fastest TT newcomer.

          It was great to see Dean Harrison making such progress in his road racing career. He dominated the Southern 100 meeting and put in some blistering performances on the TT course including his first win.

          And what a season Dan Kneen has had. He won everything in sight on the Irish road racing scene and set a fantastic PB 129mph lap at the TT. He's really shown what he can do on competetive machinery with a great team behind him.

          So that's about it for 2014 and we have a long dark winter to endure before we can look forward to more racing next spring.
          MGP 2014
          10th August 2014
          Just a few days to go to the start of what used to be the Manx Grand Prix and is now known as the festival of motorcycling that incorporates the MGP & Classic TT.

          Well whatever you wish to call it it's always a great fortnight of road racing. The variety of old and new machinery always provides a riot of colour and a cacophony of glorious sounds. Usually good racing too ... from the excitement of the newcomers classes to the speed of some of the old hands. Always great local interest to follow too ... can't wait.
          Southern 100 2014
          12th July 2014
          My Southern 100 didn't quite go to plan as I only managed to make it to the Billown Circuit on two out of three evenings and missed the main race day altogether.

          However, the weather and racing were terrific as always. Dean Harrison was virtually unstoppable this year but it was great to see Guy Martin retain his title as S100 Solo Champion.

          Although Michael Dunlop was short of luck the week also saw some spectacular performances from the likes of Ivan Lintin and local boys Dan & Ryan Kneen.
