Don't know what you chaps think but I use to love getting up and putting the radio on at the TT. But this year the lady presenter that did the morning show really got on my nerves this year. The music was also poor in my opinion.Johnny Moss was his usual witty self. I also miss the likes of Roy Moor. He could easily fill in a hour or two between races. I can't see us going back to the days off " Over to Roy Moor at the hair pin". But it would be nice for him to still play a part in the build up or between races. The other thing was how quick they shut it down after the sinor . No afterburner show it was like the TT hadn't happened. A few events on the Sunday would be nice just to help wind down to next year.

  TT 2024 done.... What d'ya think of that then?
Posted by: H2pots - 10-06-2024, 07:47 AM - Forum: TT Related Posts (Only) - Replies (50)

Well, another TT is done.

New format doesn't work with poor weather. I talked to loads of people about this and not one person was in favour of it. Maybe, i talked to all the wrong people or that is the general feeling

I were over for ten days, it were a 50/50 split with the weather in the ten days. The first weekend was great, warm sunshine and blue skies.

Monday the Friday was difficult, we got most of the races in but there were delays and cancellations galore. Very tricky weekdays.

I watched from morown, barregarrow crossroads, union mills hall x 2, and Glen duff. All great.

Was great to witness some history being made, Michael Dunlop becoming the most successful ever and Davy Todd joining the top end, two wins was great to see. Also some great podiums.... Brookes and Herbertson were refreshing faces spraying the champers.

Overall, I've enjoyed TT2024, there's been ups and downs but I'm glad i were there witnessing first hand the things i saw.

Now, roll on the manx grand prix.

What's your thoughts?

.....Michael Dunlop in terms of wins.
Question is, who stands a chance of surpassing this record in the future - not sure anyone is currently able, a star of the future if this sport is able to continue

Conor Cummins has withdrawn from the event with immediate effect. He didn't look very happy when he parked it the other day. https://www.autosport.com/roadracing/new...n%20outfit.

Well, the new format worked last year as it were perfect weather. But, as we all know, a perfect weather TT is as rare as hens teeth.

This week, since Sunday, we've not had a race day to schedule... Tuesday lost, Wednesday lost. Now Thursdays racing is three shortened races but i fear we'll fall foul of the weather again.

In my opinion, there's too much in a short source. The old format had much more wiggle room.....
Race Saturday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.... With contingency days following.

We'll see races dropped from the schedule this week i suspect, which is far from ideal for teams that have invested heavily into entering and  running twins and superstockers for two races instead of the standard one.

Maybe the TT is driven by media dictates and a quest for emptying pockets.

The Late Ferry

The buzz is growing across the ranks..
My radio station is now speaking Manx.
Checking the forecast, checking my kit..
Watching the webcams, I chomp at the bit.
“When are you going?” “er, I’m not sure I’ll bother”.
My twitchy fingers, on the keyboard hover.
Next year’s tickets released, while I look at next weeks’.!
Like a Ferry Cross the Mersey, the Steam Packet site creaks.
Is that an Azores High, in the north Atlantic.?
The website crashes, it’s getting frantic.
Johnny Moss and Kinners up the pace.
Racers line up for Practice, ahead of the first race.
Then from nowhere it appears, and with one click I’m booked.
It’s the same every year, I can’t help it, I’m hooked.
Now, pack a tent, or just pack a bag.?
Too late for a permit at the Sulby Cladagh.
But I’m on my way, I’ll soon be there..
To bathe in the TT atmosphere.
You’ll find me in the Rovers, getting steadily merry..
As for next year, you know, I’ll be on the late ferry.
