Is anyone going to the TT this year?
I think the first race is on Saturday.
Last year Peter Hickman made a new lap record, over 135 mph.
135 mph being the average speed !
Highlights are shown on tv usually about 9pm.

I'm already here! Practice/qualifying session got underway this evening, dry conditions, blue skies & sunshine but strong winds around the course.
Highlights are on ITV4 at 9pm each evening.

I am so jealous of you, enjoy the racing.

I like the Isle of Man and have been round the course on a motorcycle .. but at normal road speeds. It did make me realise how scary it would be racing.

I always think of the Dunlops...Joey the most famous one. RIP.

3 of them gone, but Michael still rides on.

The weather has played havoc with practice week - I hope it improves, otherwise it will result in shortened races or even the cancelation of certain classes.

Looks like being a classic TT this year (weather permitting).
Hickman and Harrison look fast again, but I would imagine the locals are looking forward to seeing what Conor Cummins
can do this year. The challengers are looking useful too.
