RoadRacingLive.co.uk Twitter Feed Cancelled

 

 

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.


 

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

Read the Tyco BMW Press Release here :

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.

2017 Tandragee 100 : Results

Support the Sport - Buy a Program!

Well today unfortunately the weather forecasts could not have been more wrong. For at least the last week the forecast was overcast, but dry. That was wrong it was overcast and wet

The day did start off dry and we got a couple of races before the mizzle started. The problem is it never stopped and as the day went on, it got harder right up to the point where there were reports coming in (via Twitter) of standing water on sections of the course. 

This was the forecast for the hour following the Senior Support Race :

The deteriorating weather conditions and a race incident (no further details known at this stage) – just at the end of the Senior Support Race brought the days events to an end – before we could have a SuperSports race and the days feature race – The Tandragee 100.

Most importantly I wish a speedy recovery to the rider involved in the Race Incident. 

The Results of the days completed races are as follows :
