Two weeks of fantastic weather, fantastic people, and Fantastic racing, sadly the downside was the sad loss of Raul Torras Martinez, Whom I pass My Deepest Sympathies to his Family and all his racing friends. RIP Raul. Over the years we have seen many changes, some for the better, some not, however, this past Two years, one thing has really weakened my love for the TT, and that is the TT Commentaries and Presentations!. Gone are the days when we would be kept informed of happenings, Non-starters etc, yes they do the NS, but if you don't hear them the first time, Pot Luck! Gone are the days of the easy listening tones of the late Peter Kneale, Geoff Cannell etc, Roy Moore, Dave Christain etc These guys did their homework, their research, and they could talk about practically EVERY Competitor on track!, Could today's Commentators do likewise? ( with the exception of Chris Kinley, and gotta say, Chris no 2 is doing a good job)
Today's commentaries are all about lap records, sector times etc!!!, nothing about the history of the TT, afterall, the TT has been built on history!
I look forward to returning to both S100 & Manx GP, where hopefully normal service will be resumed. Does anyone else feel like me?, or is it just my age? lol  Will I be back at the TT next year? Yes,if Iam spared and well, I hope to be there, best Show on Earth!
oh yes, forgot, TT Merch!!! Holy Moly, what a price!!

I agree with all of the above. I too miss the well informed commentators of old and especially the ramsey hairpin commentary box, it added real flavour to listening whilst sat in the hedgerows.

I too will carry on going to the TT (a addict) but if you asked me now to choose only one of either the manx or the TT... The manx would win hands down.
