What if...
Just for fun and statistics, now that the TT fortnight has ended, could anyone help to "simulate" how the TT could have possibly gone ahead in respect to the weather?
Anyone feeling ok to impersonate Gary Thompson (and knowing what the weather was like each day) could just write "ok" or "delayed" or "postponed" beside each line; I suspect, given this week's weather, it wasn't meant to be a "smooth" TT..
Thanks.

RE: What if...
I was dipping in and out of the webcams and I reckon the first race day would have been postponed due to high winds. Wednesday's races would have run on Thursday and I think they would have lost the 2nd sidecar & Senior altogether. Weather no good yesterday and by the time cloud lifted today any competitors still on the rock would probably have been waiting to get on a boat. They could run now I think but how many comnpetitors would there be left to race?

RE: What if...
I'm sure Gary Thompson and his team would have worked their magic and come up with a solution as they did in 2019

RE: What if...
No doubt about Gary Thompson: he has always done an incredible job!
But all in all, at the end of the day, it looks like it might have been a difficult TT, more like 2019 than 2018: that's just to make the huge disappointment easier to swallow...
Roll on 2021!
