    Iom tt 2016

    Anyone watching?

    Crazy speeds being reached on the circuit this week in perfect conditions.
    Michael Dunlop broke the lap record and completed the 38 mile circuit in under 17 minutes averaging over 133mph

    No racing today, but this was MD in practice on Friday

    I struggle with the TT now. The riders keep showing up and clearly like going there but it's not racing I can watch. I'm still pissed off at the TT for killing Dave Jefferies, and plenty of others over the years.

    2 Killed already at this years TT. Its one meeting that almost always ends in the sad death of at least one competitor. But these guys know the score and as its not shown "Live" you may see accidents but not tragic deaths. I still love it although always hoping each race is incident free.

    The Macau race is reckoned to be the most dangerous road racing nowadays and the NW200 in Ireland has its share of accidents. Its like MotoGP, Indycar and F1 in that every rider/driver knows the score before racing. Its a dangerous sport.

    Hutchy won today with an average speed of 133 .6 mph.

    Great rider and personality destined never to win at the TT I fear.
    TV schedule ruled him out of competing this year

    Yep - Guy will see time slip by, but end up a wealthy man - if he doesn't kill himself with one of his crazy stunts !
