Former TT commentator Fred Clarke retires

Covered the event from 1979 - 2003

Former TT commentator Fred Clarke has announced his retirement from motorcycle racing commentary.

The 77-year-old covered the Isle of Man races from 1979, when he replaced former rider Tommy Robb, until 2003.

"And now over to Fred Clarke at Ramsey Hairpin". Magic words, akin to "The sun glinting on the fairings on the Glencrutchery Road".

Have a long and happy retirement Fred.
