There will have been people drifting up to the Grandstand who had witnessed the crash. Can you imagine the UK culture minister at the Champions League Final posting a selfie with Michael Owen while the fans are getting teargassed outside.

Not sure. It was largely bullshit he spoke stood next to Steve Hislop’s statue at Port Jack. I suppose at least Hislop didn’t die here so it was deemed an appropriate setting.

The BBC report is about 17 minutes in here https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m00184sc/north-west-tonight-evening-news-07062022

And how does Rob Callister start? "It has been a brilliant first week. We are just about to go into the second week of racing. So yeah long may it continue for the rest of the week". I appreciate that the full interview will be edited but as others have said it does seem particularly crass and tone deaf to go on TV and describe a week where 3 competitors have died as a brilliant week and to hope it continues.

Just shocking, says a lot about him.

He is clearly totally out of his depth.

Just brain washed like far too many on the rock - all that matters is the TT takes place, ignore the windows and orphans.

This is a Rob Collister thread, but note also the comments of Allinson. This link is dated Monday 6 June, but may have been recorded earlier. Allinson thinks the TT should "grow" and would "put us on the map". He clearly believes money is important, but makes no comment about the fatalities - as opposed to another medical person who posts here.

It’s more than that. This was posted at 5:21 on the 4th of June. Just 2 hours after a sidecar passenger died in the most horrendous circumstances going less than a mile away from the person who is supposed to be the public face of motorsport for IOM government. In the mix too is Allinson and Hooper. It makes you wonder what they discussed with Rawlings as someone died in a garden just down the road. 

Genuine privilege to meet Richard Rawlings this afternoon at the Isle of Man TT, owner of “Gas Monkey Garage” and an all round American Legend…
