MGP & Classic TT 2016
04th September 2016
Well September is here which signifies the end of the summer and road racing for 2016.

The MGP this year provided some epic racing and proved that the event really is the breeding ground for up and coming road racers. There was a wealth of talent throughout the field in all races providing exciting close fought contest throughout the classes. Once again home grown new talent was featured in abundance with the likes of Michael Evans, Brendan Fargher and Williams all showing extraordinary fast lap times on their first outings on the track. So much so that Mikey Evans went on to win the Newcomers A event with a record race and lap times.

Main highlights :



Andy Dudgeon winning the Junior MGP




Jamie Hodson winning the Supertwin



Dan Sayle won the Lightweight



Tom Weeden winning the Senior event


The Classic TT events were enjoyable and provided the usual display of superb riding skills from some of the world's road racing elite. The results of the Classic Superbike race though have highlighted some serious issues with regard to the regs for the events with 4 of the top 6 riders being disqualified for 'technical infringements'. This reflects poorly on all involved but it is the responsibility of the organisers to ensure a fair and level playing field that riders, teams and race fans can trust.Let's hope the issues can be ironed out for next year.



Well that's about it for this year ... bring on 2017
First Practice - TT 2016
28th May 2016
Dean Harrison was super fast and smooth through Brandywell this evening and set the bar very high in the opening supersport practice session of TT 2016. Fastest lap of the night at 124.218 mph ...

Taken Too Soon
15th May 2016
When I first reviewed this image I was both pleased and excited in equal measure. Pleased because I felt it represented a flavour of the vitality, speed and exhilaration of racing around the TT course. Excited because the image featured two of the brightest talents that road racing has seen for a long time. The sporting rivalry that they epitomised had been the talk of MGP 2015, and the prospect of them renewing their duel by progressing to the TT was a mouth watering one.



Needless to say, with the dreadful news of their tragic passing all racing dreams are over. We are left to speculate on what could have been and contemplate the harsh reality of the dangers faced by all brave enough to compete in the cruel sport we all love.
The image evokes different emotions now and my heartfelt condolences go out to the families & friends of both riders. Spare a thought also for the officials and medics who have had to deal two very difficult situations.

Billy Redmayne & Malachi Mitchell-Thomas ... taken too soon RIP

Although we had diminished grids for last Sunday's re-scheduled race meeting, the weather was excellent and the racing couldn't have been faster or closer.

Well after a long, wet, windy and pretty depressing winter the road racing season is finally once again upon us. The delayed first race meeting of the year got underway in good bright but cold conditions at Jurby Airfield.
