This project has been cancelled – with no expected renewed start date.

The only twitter account linked to this blog will be @TomBoyNI

The reason for this is mainly time constraints.

Whilst at the races I am too focused on photography (and enjoying the event – without having my head stuck in a phone).  When this gets coupled with Marshaling I simply do not have the time to keep the information flowing in such a way that ensures accuracy and consistency through every meeting. 

When I consider the information flow already out there, such as live streaming, live radio, online coverage and other exceptional twitter feeds – both independent and the official event feeds – I do not see the need for another account tweeting the same information fighting for a share of an already packed medium.

I will be retaining the RoadRacingLive.co.uk domain and it will continue to point to this blog.

I will also continue to keep the results flowing, which will be updated at the conclusion of the session / event.  Details will be posted here and notified through Twitter and Facebook

I am not done with Twitter either –  the @TomBoyNI account will live tweet from events, but will not be dedicated to blow by blow coverage.  It will also tweet about everything else, so definitely worth a follow even if I do say so myself.

If you were one of my followers thank you for your support and please feel free to follow @TomBoyNI


There’s no secret – an awful lot of this site is focused on motorcycling and road racing. Especially during the racing season.

For this reason @RoadRacingLive has been born. This will be the tbni.blog dedicated Twitter feed for all things Motorcycle Road Racing related.

It will be coming just in time for the 2018 season so Follow it now and be sure not to miss a thing!

The RoadRacingLive.co.uk address will simply continue to link to the main blog.

Thos previous 2 days of qualifying have brought us to the 2017 Ulster Grand Prix Saturday Race Day and here’s how that panned out.

The schedule was as follows :

Ulster Grand Prix Race Schedule 2017
Ulster Grand Prix Race Schedule 2017

It really was an epic day’s racing the highlights for me were two fold.  Firstly – Bruce Anstey taking a Superbike win and secondly – Davy Morgan taking the lightweight win on his 250 Honda!  Epic.   Make sure to check out my galleries from every qualifying session and each race!  Lat year I was disappointed in the Ulster Grand Prix for many reasons, however that is all in the past, the 2017 UGP Saturday Race Day was – simply – outstanding.

Bruce Anstey wanted his overlap record back and he got it with a 3.18:249 lap – that’s an average speed of 134.396 mph.  However that record only sttod for a lap then Dean Harrison came in with a blingingly quick 134.614 mph lap that took 3.17:928 minutes complete and also took the overall lap record.

Another absolutely noteworthy rider is Peter Hickman – his first outing on the roads and already a Superbike win (and a couple of others) already under his belt

Dan Kneen to join Tyco BMW for the 2017 Ulster Grand Prix

Read the Tyco BMW Press Release here :

http://tycobmw.com/manxman-kneen-to-join-tyco-bmw-for-the-ulster-grand-prix/

Tyco BMW have announced that Manx rider Dan Kneen will ride for them at the 2017 MCE Ulster Grand Prix.

With Ian Hutchinson out of contention for the Dundrod meeting due to the injuries he sustained at the Isle of Man TT, former MCE Ulster GP winner Kneen is set to be the team’s only rider at the final international road race of the year.

30-year-old Manxman Dan had his most successful TT campaign to date this year, securing both his fastest lap and a debut podium in the Superstock race behind Ian Hutchinson and Peter Hickman.

He comes to Dundrod with an impressive Southern 100 performance under his belt too, narrowly missing out on glory in the senior race to Michael Dunlop, who crossed the finish line just 0.12 seconds in front of Kneen.

Dan Kneen said: “First of all, it’s nice to be asked to ride for Tyco BMW. Obviously, the opportunity has come up, due to Hutchy’s injury, so I’d like to take this opportunity to wish him all the best with his recovery.

Honda Confirm Cause of McGuiness 2017 North West 200 Crash

Honda Racing

The 2017 North West 200 was the start of the end for Honda’s Road Racing Season this year.

Things hadn’t got off to a great start anyway even after the announcement of what has to be described as a dream team of John MCGuinness and Guy Martin.  Guy crashed out of Tandragee and had a mediocre Cookstown event, however whether Honda wanted to admit it or not there was clearly an issue come the North West.

Every road racing fan knows John McGuinness just doesn’t fall off and it didn’t take long until the rumours started flowing that there was an issue with the bike and something to do with the throttle and that is what had thrown John off the bike.

Now two and a half months later, those rumours have been confirmed.
