Was there last year but not sure about this year Pete. Too much going on to siphon the money away, especially the MZ racing!
Hi all, I'm from the tornado tre side of the forum. Are any of you classic owners heading over to the Manx GP or Classic TT? I'll be over there for the classic TT to ride in the parade lap aboard a Honda RC163, yes I said Honda. But to redeem myself I'm also taking the Tornado RS over. Both bikes will be on display in the paddock on the Sunday and monday, pop in and say hello
hopefully i will be able to take the Elbymoto there next year
no chance of getting there this year though
Hi Peter. Booked up for the manx this year for this 1st time as I fancied a change from TT, also starting to appreciate the older bikes more. Will be across on my Tre so will drop into the paddock to see you. wonder if anyone else fancies meeting up one evening , how about The Creek at Peel harbour Sunday . Looking forward to seeing you.
Thought I would bring this to the top again seeing as it is now upon us!
After much messing the bikes are ready and the van is packed. Unfortunately I don’t have a Benelli over this year but I do have a pair 350 Ducati Sebring’s in both the 350 and 500 classic races #19 and #31 respectively.
To anyone going have a fun safe trip.
Don't forget there is much more than just the Classic races!
My Honda is almost ready, its been a long week in the garage. While the Benelli patiently sits there ready to go. I will be the 'classic racer magazine classic lap of honour' paddock from Saturday night. The paddock is behind the grandstand in Douglas and will be open to the public to view all the parade bikes. Parade lap is on the Monday at 12:15
Sorry I didn't get down to the parade paddock too busy with my own bike. Hope your lap went well.
Not a bad couple of weeks for me. 10th in 500 classic on my 350 Ducati and first privateer home! 5th in 350 on the same Ducati battling for 3rd for a while but the bike went a little sick on the 3rd lap so I backed it off a bit and nursed the bike home. Shame it would of been nice to upset a few more of the TT stars! Having said that despite all the development work and money thrown at the big teams bikes the Ducati was still the fastest bike through the speed trap. Not too bad for a bike that the experts said would never be competitive!
