    TT 2023

    If the sidecars do not return for 2023 then the new schedule will need revising. They cant add any more solo races and the superbike/ superstock will be doing 20 racing laps plus practices for the guys who ride the same bike in both.

    TT 2022 ??

    They just did a full safety review, implemented a number of new procedures and rolled out for the first time a safety driven approach to the event. But the reality is some years are good and some years are bad, some years there are no racing fatalites but there are multiple road fatalies. Perhaps speed reduction does need to be looked at but regardless the course cannot be made meaningfully safer unlike the northwest 200 which is a far smaller and much simpler course.
  3. Going the full length of the prom, not sure what they are doing after broadway!
  4. We are lucky to live on a no through road and we know lots of our neighbours not because we are busy bodies. Our kids play out and it generates a great community spirit. This is a great idea especially for streets that are used as rat runs for traffic.

    So bikes are relevant then, to you at least.

    But if we had a medium sized music festival attracting similar numbers it would create just as much pollution and C02 emissions. But you would most likely have a different view on that. Being relevant is a personal opinion I assume you just dont like bikes.

    TT 2022 ??

    The road was wrecked with wagons going up there and then a frost created pot holes that the DOI patched and the circuit lost its licence with the ACU. There are plans to revive it needs DOI to resurface and then the course be inspected. It's a cracking circuit.

    TT 2022 ??

    They have done a good job getting the press to jump up and down about it being live as if its the first ever live sports event. NW200 was streamed live on BBC website 15 years ago and was available on red button for just as long. Its nothing new at at all, its low hanging fruit in this day and age.

    Some cringey comments in that link: BSN: “This is an amazingly ambitious programme, more than any other except the Olympic Games, and it is inevitable that mistakes will be made .The buggeration factor must be quite high because this is the first time you have done it. Who is the poor sucker who has got to pull all this together apart from you Paul?” Phillips: “I am very accountable for the project. It is my project.

    Assume it will be the audio from the video feed with adverts for Barry Curran and The Ting Tings played every 15mins Roy Moore will be missed he has a skill rarely found and very much the voice of the TT. How much is Steve Day and all this streaming feed costing for 1 event.....based on their track record of live timing failures its bound to have teething troubles.
  14. Developers love greenfield sites because theres no demolition or clearing just straight in with the groundwork. This needs to stop, Douglas is in a state and the Corp and DEFA Planning need to come up with a plan to resolve it before Ballafletcher Road is touched.
