Isle of Man TT blog: oil stops practice

TT Thursday night. Traditionally the night to find out who’s really on the pipe. The riders are well dialled, the course has rubber down and it’s time for some seriously fast laps. Tonight was perfect – almost too perfect with clear blue skies and a sun dipping towards the horizon that might have given the riders some concern on certain parts...

Lets be honest the big show is McGuinness, Dunlop, Anstey, Donald, Farquer and Co. They should be given priority and not the chairs. John McGuinness was just been diplomatic in my opinion. I am sure if other riders were asked to comment their answers might not have been so diplomatic. What a washout in what MCN has reported quite correctly is the BIG Practice Night. I was expecting to see 130's last night. Let's hope tonight will be alright.

Well measured words from everyone, but highlights a change to be made for next year.

Lets see if the organisers take heed and restructure the event to give a higher priority to the solo's without sacrifising the seats

No other choice

Spare a thought for the friends & family of the rider who lost their life in the RTC that caused the initial delay. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, and i'm sure no one would have complained if the oilspill didnt happen  and everything ran on time, but these things happen on the roads. Lets be thankful the oil didnt come from a solo going through Kirk Michael with someone following!

i agree srogerson.  it's been a pretty bleak start to the TT this year, 3 dead and the racing hasn't started.  and now further headlines in the news that the event can do well without ...

Sidecars ceased to be sidecars many years ago, they're now something of an anachronism more like three-wheeled racing cars so far removed from what they once were to be almost meaningless as a motorcycle/sidecar combination.

Killahrat sounds like the perfect mcn reader , pathetic , sidecars are part of the IOM race history . Are you like the mcn reporters and only watch on big bike race then go home , there are other classes of racers to watch and that includes sidecars . It takes more skill to ride an outfit .

If you dont like all the races then stay at home with the mcn reporters and watch it on tv or shut your mouth
