Superbike Race today. Davey Lambert is described as critical with multiple injuries following his accident at Greeba Castle. Thoughts are with him, his family & friends.

Guy Martin retired with a bruised wrist, after an off due to a false neutral at Doran's Bend.

Michael Dunlop retired due to technical issues.

Ian Hutchinson, 15th TT victory :D

I wish I was there. Going to make the effort next year, never been, never lived! So I was reliably informed by an old school pal today :o

Me and brunette biker have been talking about going next year.....I think it's one of those events you have to plan and book early. I wonder if there are any other BMers thinkin the same :)

An ideal time to look for TT dates to travel are early in the new year.
Steam Packet offers are normally released around then, always worth email alerts.

Also...if you're willing to consider it, lookout for the TT marshals training in the UK - also early in the new year.
It's free, includes roadside first aid and access to all areas / paddock for a few hours or so of your time as a volunteer.
The training is excellent, and the experience is unique. Being that close to road racing adds something very special to the TT.
Recommended.

That sounds very tempting..... A blast! Will certainly be looking into that...thanks n/c :)

My thoughts with the families.  
 
 
 on the other side of this thread....you can I believe put a deposit down on your steam packet passage ticket.   Just remember if you are planning on next year, you need to do the planning and booking now.    A lot of the places to stay (if not tenting) are prebooked at least a year in advance and the ferry crossings sell out quicker than a quick thing.

Thanks rb.... It is certainly on my bucket list to go.... I will definitely be looking into the logistics of it all with regards to going 2018. The Marshall idea sounds very tempting ...

Agree with rb...demand is massive.

But...if you play with dates....and not select the Cat...it improves quite a bit.

Missed it this year...will also miss those no longer with us.

That, by the way, is a consideration to keep in mind when marshalling.
There are highs and lows...and people to keep safe as well as help keep alive while the bike paramedics / helicopter is on the way to the scene.

Yes.... A responsibility not to be taken lightly.
