Am I the only person watching this year?
There has been some great racing, it started on Saturday with Michael Dunlop having an easy win in the Superbike race, nice to see Guy Martin in second with Conor Cummins third. Then the first sidecar race won by Conrad Harrison/Mike Aylott followed by John Holden/ Andrew Winkle and Tim Reeves/Gregory Cluze. Sidecar passengers mut be either to most stupid or the bravest people on the planet, hanging out with your head well out from the sidecar whilst the driver tries to get as close as possible to apex scares me to death just watching.
Monday was SuperSport Race 1 with Gary Johnson scraping ahead of Bruce Anstey by 1.502 seconds with Michael Dunlop in third. During the second half of the race there was some dampness around the mountain, Michael Dunlop had been passed by Johnson who knew just how brilliant Michael is in dampish conditions; Johnso tried to get Dunlop to overtake him to no avail as Dunlop thought it would be unfair to give one competitor an advantage due to his actions.
Tuesday was the Superstock with Michael Dunlop winning by a clear 20 seconds from Dean Harrison, Bruce Anstey being over 23 seconds further adrift. Gary Johnson came off, fracturing his shoulder (I think).
The second Sidecar Race which was scheduled for today was postponed until tomorrow due to bad weather, there were other events going on but I haven't watched the recording I made from ITV 4 which has stopped me looking anything up.
