Londoners-in town next week, where can I sit down and watch Isle of Man???

Looks like I have Thursday free. Would love to go over to the Island but too far so just assumed this is a big deal over there. Staying over near Regents Park. Any Pubs, bike hang outs, etc where they might be showing the time trials or whatever my be televised relating?

Could kick myself not to have scheduled my trip better to be there over the weekend

Don't know if anyone carries the TT live. Highlights every night on ITV4 at 21:00.

Really what a shame, for the pathetic US I understand but for you guys having the biggest race in the world in your backyard, quite a surprise.

Anybody else?

Quite so, have to sit at home watching as even local biker pub does not show it.

37.5 mile circuit is not realistic to have live coverage. The best you are going to get unless you are there is online listening to Manx Radio which will commentate live on the race.

The team filming the event change their position up to 4 times per race and are still editing the show as it starts running at 21:00 the same night.

You might be able to get a flight out and watch it live though, but if you did we would all probably be too jealous to ever talk to you again so don't do that.

from where you are - take the tube to victoria, get the gatwick express (30mins) jump on the 14.45 www.easyjet.com and 1hr 15 mins later you will be there!!

come back the next day flight costs are less than 100...trust me you won't regret it

don't worry about a hotel - just party all night!!

jobs a fookin gooden!!
