2017 Apple iPad Pro 10.5″ & 12.9″ UK Release Date

Preorders have already started for the new iPad Pro, and lead times for some combinations are already touching 10 days for dispatch – but when can you go into an actual store, have a look at the new devices and walk out (hopefully) with one?

That is a much harder question to find the answer to, no where seems to have that date in black and white.

Well I do.

It is today – Tuesday 13th June 2017.

So get yourself down to the Apple Store and have a go.  (Pickup at this moment 00:00 hrs is not currently available).

The reviews have already started coming in and they are very positive, however one thing shines through in every review I have seen… iOS11 is when we will truly know the true potential for the new iPad Pro and it won’t be with us until the Autumn (Fall for all you guys and girls stateside).

Isle of Man TT 2016 : Day 3 – Isle of Man Motor Museum

As mentioned on my Isle of Man 2016 : Day 3 post I visited the Isle of Man Motor Museum.  Quite simply this is an outstanding collection of motor vehicles that is well worth a visit the next time you are on the island.

The Museum was founded and funded by father and son team Denis and Darren Cunningham to act as the public home for their collection of over 130 vehicles.  The Museum also hosts over 150 other vehicles on loan from other enthusiasts and collectors.

The Isle of Man was chosen as the location for the Museum due to the unique place the Island occupies in motoring and motorsports history. The Island is the motorcycle road racing capital of the world and has hosted the famous TT races on the public roads annually since 1907. The Southern 100 and the Festival of Motorcycling are also fantastic opportunities to see road racing here.

For 2016, the Museum is proud to host the Joey Dunlop Collection featuring many of his trophies, leathers and race machines. Joey is the most successful TT competitor of all time with 26 victories to his name earning him the title “King of The Mountain”.

Rallying and enduro are also a huge part of motorsport on the Isle of Man and the Museum features a Ford Zephyr which competed in the London-Sydney Marathon rally and World Enduro Championship winning KTMs from local hero David “Knighter” Knight OBE.
