Took a few pics of the races today, but to be honest they were nothing exciting, my back is killing me and i didn't make the effort required to get to the spots where the best pics happen, and I was trying to keep the home office happy with family duties too. To make matters worse photobucket won't let me upload them tonight either. I will try harder on Friday.

Finally! Get access to a 'puter! (Been a bit slack actually, Guiness to be draunk, etc...aaye..)
Our boy failed to complete the required 5 laps of practice, so was unable to race.Of course there were a lot of other people in the same way, but were allowed to race...Also some bikes clearly outside the rules...but there ya go. Never mind, still havn a fat time, helping some other guys to live their dream. Good shit.
Aussie boy Alex Pickett should have been a shoe in for the newcomers race, but never figured the 848 Ducati's 15litre tank wasn't gunna be enough. Still done good, finishing 8th after stopping for fuel every time round. Not bad. There was some talk of blowing the tank out for a cupla litres more, but the bloody things like 8 mm thick! Won't happen.
Oh yeah, and yesterday we won the 750 class at the Ramsey Sprint...with a Honda 4(5)00..WooHoo!
Better go fill our fuel urn...Will post pix when I get home next week.
YO!

Mate! We are down in the left corner of the lower paddock, on the police HQ side, there is a tasty little Honda 400/4 (yellow) opposite our caravan, and an Aussie flag flying off the annex. Come on down! No need to bring beer, we have plenty!

Called up to see Bootlace, found the caravan, but he was reported to be missing in the vicinity of the beer tent! I hope you're OK, see you next year!

Sorry folks, bit of an anti-climax from me. Went to Ramsey today and took some pics of the first running of the junior/supertwins...

























this race was stopped after one and a bit laps, due to mist on the mountain. I didn't go back for the restart, but waited for the senior in the afternoon, which was cancelled! I think there may be some discussion about that one!

Oh yeah, straight to night shift. So don't expect any quick reactions.....no chance........3 weeks of serious body abuse, followed by a 24hr plane ride, and instant nite shift, it just doesn't add up....Foookd good, ZZZzzz

Manx GP photos

Spectacular photos! Better then mine,by a long shot.
Three of us were at Ballaugh Bridge about the time you shot the photos.We were standing in the tiny front yard of the white row houses that was the backdrop to your photos.Across from the Raven.Don't see us,but recognize the three women that were standing beside us.

We've been to IOM many times,but this year as one of the best.Great weather.Excellent races.Jurby was a treat.

Your photos bring back great memories.Thanks!

So. Monday morning started early, helping John McGuiness get his Motorhome into the paddock, shifting fences and bins etc. He seemed a bit irritable, and looked like he'd had a heavy night on the piss. Speaking to him later in the evening, at the start of practice, he explained that he'd driven straight from the 8hr endurance race in eastern Germany, (Osherlieben?), and arrived in the early hours, and parked outside for about an hours sleep!





Cute plate...
