Another cracking day with the weather, visibility good all around the course. Wayne, Stu and Teddy have had a day cleaning the bike....it looks like it's been chrome plated! Wayne changed the chain so a quick stop at the Nook later for teddy to help adjust it after a few miles. Mark feeling a bit brighter so hopefully a steady first lap and a flier to finish the practice.
Ready for the off on Glenclutchery Road instead of pit lane, timetable running smoothly, sun low but clear skies and dry roads. Just going steady, making sure Mark is settled and the chain is bedded in, no problems around, chain adjusted at the nook, no a 5 minute section! Then time for a flier to get back in the zone! 5.11.940 to Glen Helen, not yet at full pace, slightly quicker into Balluagh and a couple of seconds off to Ramsey. No traffic so a clear run across to the Bungalow and back for the home straight down the Cronk ny Mona to grandstand for a lap time of 108.6323.
Saturday 6th June.....Race 1...... Cancelled due to 50 mph winds at low level and 60mph around the mountain. No races ran today, and sadly, a helicopter pilot lost his life after his aircraft crashed by the 33nd. Our thoughts are with his family.
Sunday 7th June
The supers were out today for what was, 6 corking laps of speed, guts and glory! Weldone Bruce, Ian and James, very unlucky incident for MD, hope all ok and the other fella involved, we hope you're ok too.
