    TT 2022 ??

    Spot on, the Gov CS self appointed experts stopped the VMCC Jurby event by stipulating expensive and IMO entirely unnecessary "requirements" while at the same time choosing to ignore and abdicate responsibility for obvious rider safety issues on the TT/MGP course . Funny old world.
  2. Who has he delegated the onerous job of "meeting and greeting " the Corporate clients / bucket listers in the VIP tent ?

    The houses you see are "in" Onchan and pay Onchan Rates , but don't let the facts put you off posting inaccurate information . Hope this helps

    Parts of Onchan seem acceptable

    TT 2022 ??

    Not strictly true in that a few marshals , after witnessing the 2 fatals and a few big "offs" at Casey's /Black Hut decided that marshalling wasn't for them. One a marshal with over 30 years experience and who had witnessed fatals previously said 'he thought as he had got older he was perhaps more sentimental and that was why it had hit him harder. Fair comment H d ,I'm now "done" as the powers that be have refused to even discuss safety improvements @ Casey's and Black Hut ( 9 offs including multiple riders and 2 fatals) . Sadly the marshals witnessing "offs" at the marshalling points do not take part in any investigation , their views are regarded as irrelevant and if persistent are labelled a "troublemaker". Just saying

    Excellent Roxanne , one more of "us" and one less of "them"😉, mind you I left it a bit late ( I had my bus pass)when I agreed to passenger for a few laps @ Jurby . I was told to hold on and nod my head up and down but in reality was about as much use as 56 lbs of 'Edwards'.🤣

    Bit like the 5 'offs' @ "Casey's, including two 'fatals' , the CoC etc have still decided not to install air fencing, despite the recommendations of marshals . The ACU's statement of "improvements" ( referred to by DF ) ? Fine words but absolute bollocks when it comes to rider safety and leasing with marshals IMO .
  9. I could pop round with a jar of "vick" 2bees ,hope you feel better soon .

    I am/was a member of the IOM TTMA ( along with either 283 or 680 members , nobody seems sure 😉) and was notified of an EGM to wind up the company and transfer its assets to a new company ( TTMA ltd ). The EGA was adjourned as no information was given in relation to the assets/ liabilities of IOM TTMA. A new date was set for a reconvened EGM which again was adjourned. I have received no notification of when the adjourned EGM will be held. I understand the the TTMA Ltd have now taken over the assets of the old company and are in charge with 2 Members . Just saying

    Max, as far as I'm aware the marshals @ Black Hut/Casey's have not been invited to attend an investigation by the powers that be into any incident .

    I would venture to suggest that the marshals on the ground should be a party to the investigation .

    I have marshalled (2008-2019) and have never been offered post incident support . My only concern is to prevent/ mitigate a further reoccurrence of incidents @ Casey's and Black Hut. Hope this helps.

    The CoC/ motorsport team /TTMA ltd demonstrably do not wish to see statistics on serious crashes given that after 5 "offs" @ 'Casey's" including 2 fatals ( 2014 & 2018) they still refuse to even discuss the installation of air fencing . Similarly after 4 "offs" @ "Black Hut" ( 1 with 2 riders down and 1 with 3 riders ) where riders suffered severe lower leg injuries when coming into contact with the dwarf wall the CoC etc etc rejected the request to fix boarding to said wall. Just saying😡

    It would be true to say that to hold an opinion and voice it which is other than that of the CoC is a breach of the ACU's "Code of Conduct ". The penalty for a marshal breaching the ACU's Code of Conduct is dismissal ( see the letter from Mr G Thompson MBE BEM to Mike Brown , formerly the chief Sector Marshal Sector 10. No reason has to be given and there is no right of appeal ( see the memorandum and Articles of Association TTMA LTD I have stated on an internet forum that I hold an alternative view , as did Mike Brown. Just saying
