Red flag has been shown for the last 45 mins and still being shown. Second lap of newcomers. Not good news.

Would seem capacity issues at Nobles Hospital are currently preventing continuing with the qualifying.

RE: Southern 100
Seems Nobles is full of Covid patients. How does this leave the rest of S100 meet if no hospital beds available ?

RE: Southern 100
Just read a couple of reports,,Tuesday went off, MD bagged the red flagged superbike race. Looked like they were on wets in the pic, must've been damp.

Weather not looking great for tonight (Wednesday) but Thursday looking like a largely fine day.

It went off, but with that red flag it was a bit scary!
Davey Todd did well , coming from 8th on the grid.
Full race commentaries are live on Manx radio , AM 1368 or interweb.

RE: Southern 100
As promised here's my feedback on the IOMSPC one day excursion to Thursday's S100 racing. It all went really well, we sailed on the Manxman (a first for me) which was very pleasant. There were around 90 of us on the excursion and we were met in the sea terminal and transported to The Sidings in Castletown on 2 double decker buses where we were provided with a 'breakfast in a box' which was ok. Then we all went our seperate ways, I decide to sign on as a marshal and had a great day particularly as the weather steadily improved until we were all enjoying a beautiful summer's day of quality racing. The return buses were due to return from The Sidings at 5 pm, which was a bit tight as the roads didn't open 'til 4:45 pm. But the return journey went well and we were back in the sea terminal in plenty of time for the return ferry. All in all, at £55 each, I thought it was a good value, well organised trip which, I think, only cost around £8 more than the standard foot passenger return fare.

RE: Southern 100
I took a pushbike, pedaled in on Wednesday night, pedaled down to stadium corner for Thursday's racing, pedaled back to Douglas and had a night in a hotel then sailed back this morning (Friday) then pedaled home.

I've had a stellar time. I live 50 odd miles from heysham and had a great ride home today.

Racing was truly nail biting, fast, close and great to watch. Thursday's weather got better and better, come lunch time everybody was enjoying the welcome sunshine.

It were a lovely evening strolling on Douglas front heading to port jack chippy for me tea after the day had done.

It's been around 15 years since i were at the southern, I've proper enjoyed this little jolly. it won't be 15yrs until I'm there again.

It will be on ITV4 at some stage, I don't think they've publicised the dates yet, usually towards the end of the month.
Greenlight were definitely filming, using a drone at certain places.
