IOM TT, NW200 etc  - 
 
We had a great bank holiday Monday here on the Isle of Man today.
This morning was pretty busy with our own personal TT preparations, cutting the grass, shopping and defrosting the freezer, boring shit that needed to be done.
This afternoon was spent watching the pre TT classic racing down at the Billown Circuit in Castletown, and very good it was to especially the F1 race with the ZXRs doing the business and it was nice to see one of my old bikes, the OW01 up near the front beating the GSXR1100's, well most of them.
This evening, after a ride to Peel we headed back to Douglas to one of our favourite spots, the top of Bray Hill to watch the superbikes in this evenings practice.
The first video is of the top 10 leaving the line and off for their first lap including the Suter 500 with Ian Lougher at the helm.
The second is those riders that went through for a flying lap.
If you read +stevie rial​ posts you will see that the lap times were bloody impressive, especially for a second practice session.
There is a bit of commentary with the video, over the top of the noise but hopefully it will give you a little taster of TT Practice week and the sights and sounds of the event.

Although Ian Hutchinson finished quickest in tonight's superbike practice session at TT 2016, it was Bruce Anstey and the RC213V-S Honda who provided arguably the story of the evening, as the bike which is essentially a Moto GP production bike, closed in on the top spot of the time sheets.

1947 Moto Guzzi "Bicilindrica" 500 racer.
The famous overhead cam 500cc V-twin racer was designed in 1933. Production stopped in 1951 when it had been replaced by the unique Moto Guzzi "Quattro Clindri" 500cc longitudinal 4-cylinders and by the brutish Moto Guzzi 500 V8.
The Moto Guzzi 120° V twin design inspired Ducati's famous 90° L-twin.

BSB & WSB TV in the UK

No UK live coverage of WSB this weekend at Donington. And no live coverage of BSB last weekend at Brands Indy.

Did Dorna upset Eurosport UK? Or is it just that we're in the middle of tennis-cycling season? I can't remember when this last happened.
