Hi guys Smile

Yet to investigate, was a member on ttwebsite about a millennium ago, but it all appears to have changed somewhat Smile Didn't recognise old log in etc. Fortunately didn't even recognise the username, as I have still retained it. Smile

Look forward to some similar TT posting etc Smile

Glad you fingered it out and made it over Eddy. Wouldn't be right if you didn't.
Now where is Amsterdam. . . . . . . . . . ?

Took some minor pleasure in deleting the short cut to the old forum.

This was tempered by finding out Don Simons had died - I still owe him dinner.

Also found a PM from 6 years ago that I didn't know about :-).

Good to see so many familiar names and the forum warming up. Hopefully Malcolm can capitalise on this new found popularity somehow - at least enough for it to be worth the extra aggro.

That was a bit of a kick in the teeth if they mean it is now paradise for them now.

I hadn't spotted that!

RE: IOMTT Forum Closure
Just want to se what happens if I copy and paste from TT Course knowledge.

If it works I can promise a new and quite comprehensive update after New Year. I have a question to Malcolm, is colored text available at this forum, please?
Sorry Malcolm, I was too quick! I can see the font color button now.

Test Test Test Test and what I can see after a preview IT WORKS!!! Have patience please.
As far as I can see now, this forum works better than the old one. Gives more possibilities and so on. Great Malcolm!

Please leave this test as a test. I prefer to publish the entire and updated list when it is ready. If you have a need to read the knowledge before the update is published, go to the old page. Hold your cursor over TT 2015 to the left at the top. Then you'll see a droplist. At the bottom there is Forum Archive. Click it! No log in needed.

The texts in italic and with "quotation marks" are notes from Richard "Milky" Quayle. I've got a document from "Milky" written with reference to facts available after the 2013 TT races. All the mentioned speeds are in m.p.h.

NOW THERE IS AN UPDATED GUIDED TT-LAP AVAILABLE. IT'S IN SLOW SPEED ON CLOSED ROADS. YOU'LL FIND IT: HERE!



It is hard to give up this task so here is a new attempt from me to put names of places and bends at the TT course in a correct order. If you find mistakes, feel free to to tell me, please! Objections are welcome.

PLEASE NOTE! There are some changes since the earlier published lists.

Drag the mouse with the mouse button pressed - rotate the panorama to look up, down, left or right. For more information or help about the panoramas, please visit: http://www.virtualiom.com

The bold digits in italic shows TT Course place names with their approximate milage in miles from the start. Mile markers, black digits on orange bottom, are measured from the start line which means that they are not always at the same spot as the milestones are in reality! Some milestones along the course are, for example, measured from the old capital Castletown and their placings has nothing with the TT Course to do.

NO MARSHALLS - NO RACES! Did you know that there's a need of a little more than 500 marshalls around the course before a practice or race?

HERE IS THE LIST OF NAMES FROM START TO FINISH!

Start And Finish Line (Grandstand) 0/37.73 http://www.gyrovision.com/panoid/47/100/1

Braddan Bridge 1.7 http://www.gyrovision.com/panoid/78/100/1
S-bend left-right handers. There were ten Irish saints named Brenainn. The form Braddan into which Brenainn developed in Mann, took place at an early date. Manx Notebook suggests this is from St. Brandon, an abbot who died in 1066 on the Isle of Arran. On the wall at the churchyard there is a plaque on the wall for newcomer Serge Le Moal who was killed here in 125 cc practice in 2004. After the 2nd roundabout there is a seat to remember marshall Percy Guest who was hit by a local motorcyclist when preparing for a practice. Possible the get to at race. Some parking. Come early. Here is a Grandstand with a small fee. Toilets at the Grandstand and in the Church Hall. Food and drinks at the Grandstand and in the Church Hall. "3rd gear. 100 on a big bike."

An updated map is free to download in different sizes and resolutions at:
http://www.luff.org.uk/tt_map/

Map updated November 10th 2013.
Don't be that optimistic! The light in the tunnel can be a train. Sad
