Marshaling at the TT
The wife and I love marshalling at Guthrie's which we always go to at least twice in race week.We have marshalled at the Hairpin,Ballagarey and windy which were all good.
We have decided this year in between our two days at Guthrie's we are gong to pick some new posts to see more of the course, where would you all recommend and where is your favourite spots?


Cheers

Paul

RE: Marshaling at the TT
I've enjoyed everywhere I've marshalled but I really enjoyed Bungalow, Union Mills, Ballaugh Bridge and 32nd/Dukes - you also get a good view at Braddan Oak.

If you are over for practice sessions I've found them a good way of seeing different places without committing to a full day.

Regards

RE: Marshaling at the TT
I move around the course every year and Glen Helen is one of my posts every year.  Try it is a great spot.  There are many different points that you could be assigned to, all very good viewing.  Another nice point is that are are several food trucks that set up in the parking lot now that the Glen has closed so there is food and drink available.

Several others that I can heartily recommend are Ginger Hall, Sulby Bridge and Hillberry.  There is no food ar drink available at the last two but if you have been working on the mountain that should not be a problem for you.

Bill don't know when you last marshalled at Sulby Bridge but there are refreshaments and toilets available at Sulby Bridge in race weeks both at the TT and Manx. I need them to keep me going on flag duty there.

RE: Marshaling at the TT
One of the best days we have ever had was when Marshaling at Guthrie's in 2014 it was on an emergency day due to the weather and incidents.We were sitting up there and the sprint was on at Ramsey and the view we got of the Red Arrows was just something else with us being up that bit higher just a wee bonus of being up there.

Hi Nev,
I usually marshal at the Manx/Classic, only went to the TT in '11 and I'm not sure if I worked at Sulby Bridge that year.  I last marshaled At Sulby Bridge last August, during practice week, there certainly were toilets available but I don't remember refreshments there.  Since I was at the bridge during practice week, it's possible that refreshments are there during race week.

Hi Bill,
If you marshalled at the Manx/Classic for practice week last year we must have meet as I was on the flags at Sulby Bridge for the Full Fortnight, as again I will be this year all being well..
You are right the refreshments are available only for race week. They are done from a bungalow at the Bridge and you can get a nice home made soup there which is often welcome with the weather we sometimes have.

RE: Marshaling at the TT
Nev,
I Think it was Tuesday of practice week that I was at Sulby Bridge.  We must have talked and I think it will be easier for you to remember me than the reverse, as I was the only American working there that evening.  Every one was talking funny except for me.

I plan on working Sulby on Tuesday evening, Practice week, again this year.  I have had my air line reservations for a month now, I'm not counting days yet, but soon.
