Sort of wondering what Slinky, Rhumsaa and Gladys make of the present running. 

I rarely come on here so barely notice

I just saw this article on the BBC regarding the use of taxpayers money on the Ulster GP.

Ulster Grand Prix safety money spent on club facilities https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-49166366

it would be interesting if us taxpayers could have a breakdown of costs allocated towards the TT, eg,  salaries, rental costs, upgrades and is money being spent on the right areas?

The video included in that report, of Rachael MacKay's feelings of loss on hearing of Jamie Hodson's death is a bit harrowing.

Dream on mate, it'll never happen. I happen to like the TT/MGP but getting any of our elected buffoons to admit the real costs isn't going to happen any time soon. Unless of course it can further their individual careers.

Sadly, I reckon some of our money spent as taxpayers, could be more spent wisely. Unfortunately as you quite rightly put it, I would say ‘vested interests’.

CoC again been on the Government Propaganda Mouthpiece espousing the lack of Marshalls and appealing for more for tomorrow’s rearranged MGP Newcomers race. 

https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/appeal-for-more-marshals-for-tuesday-racing/

If we are spending each day worrying and appealing over whether there are enough volunteers to enable the race to go ahead, maybe we are reaching the end of the races altogether?

Perhaps a more professional, qualified and salaried Motorsport Marshalls for all cycling, motorcycle and motorsports (rallying) and Trials, be established. Just a suggestion
