2018 Isle of Man TT Race Winners’ Payout

Isle of Man TT Races 2018 Winners' Payouts
Isle of Man TT Races 2018 Winners’ Payouts

2018 Isle of Man TT Race Winners’ Payout – One of the most popular posts of the last year on this blog was the Isle of Man TT – Race Winners Payout so with the start of the Road Racing Season less that two weeks away from and TT fever starting to build I thought I would update the post for 2018 – and add a little more information to cover more than just the TT Senior Race.

But one of the most discussed topics is how much do these guys / girls get for winning the TT?  You might be surprised, but one thing that is very important; for the majority – if not all the competitiors – it isn’t about the cash – it’s about the prestige.

Lego Speed Champions – Ford Fiesta M-Sport WRC – 75885

Lego Ford Fiesta WRC Box
Lego Ford Fiesta WRC Box

Everyone loves Lego, no matter their age Lego is truly a 1-100 product (maybe 4-100) even publications like Time claim it to be a better investment that gold.  Generally there are two types of Lego people – the Collector and the Builder.

The Collector does just that – collects sets, puts them away somewhere safe and then, maybe, one days sells them for a profit – or at least hopes to.

Then you have the Builder – they tear the box open, tip out the contents and have fun building up whatever was inside.

I’m a bit of both- collecting and building.  Some sets I put away, some I build and some I buy a pair of, one to build, one to collect.

This set : 75885, the Lego Speed Champions Ford Fiesta M-Sport WRC is one such set I doubled on.  Why?  Because I really wanted to build one and then I though it’s only £12.99 and there are an awful lot of both Ford and Lego enthusiasts so it would do no harm to buy a second and keep it pristine.  Who knows someday it might be worth a bit more?

Mous iPhone X Accessories Unboxing and Review

Mous Limitless Accessories :

Disclosure : I purchased these Mous Limitless iPhone X Accessories direct from Mous.co the review is my own as are my thoughts on the product.

I have previously posted a review on the Mous Limitless Case 2.0 for iPhone X – you can find that review right here : Mous Limitless iPhone X Case (Carbon Fibre) Unboxing & Review

I am still currently using that very case and have been since writing the review.  I am still hugely impressed by it along with its build quality and durability.  No doubt it was expensive at the time but it still looks as new and despite being used daily there isn’t a mark on it.

Casio G-Shock GBA-800 Unboxing and Review (GBA-800-9AER)

Casio G-Shock GBA-800 Unboxing and Initial Review (GBA-800-9AER)

At CES 2018, Casio introduced two new G-Shock watches to its ever growing collection of tough timepieces. Known as the GBA-800 and GPR-B1000, both devices connect to the G-Shock Connected app to help track different metrics and information.

The relevant watch to this review is from G-Shock’s new G-Squad series, the GBA-800 — a hybrid fitness watch that you can adds a little bit of fitness tech to G-Shock’s already iconic style.  It comes in six different colour models – and of course the poster child for the series is the almost day-glo yellow (or is it green) model.

Using a built-in accelerometer the watch measures your daily steps along with your walking or running pace, the amount of steps you’ve taken will be displayed on the watch, both as a figure and a graphic.

So to wet your appetite here are a few of the promo shots released for the watch…
