2018 Isle of Man TT Practice Session 29/05/2018 :

Another glorious day on the Isle of Man.  So it was off to the course to have a few runs round the Mountain Road before heading to a new vantage point to watch the evening’s qualifying / practice sessions.

The first thing I noticed was the iconic house that I knew as the ‘PokerStars House’ was now the ‘Honda House.’

Missing getting over the mountain in 2016 I watched the session from this park – it is a good viewing area if you ever visit.

If you look towards the house you will see lots of bikes parked up.  That’s because the Mountain section was closed due to a collision, unfortunately this year this was an all too common occurrence.

The 2018 Isle of Man TT can only be described as sunkissed throughout.  Two glorious weeks of wall to wall, practically uninterupted sunshine!

Now there is a secret to being on the Isle of f Man in such weather, you simply start off by going to Conor Cummings Coffee Shop called Conrods, located in Ramsey.

2018 Radcliffe Butchers Post-TT Road Races Results – 09/06/2018

Southern 100 Pre TT Classic Road Races
Southern 100 Pre TT Classic Road Races

The TT Festival finishes off just like it starts – with a series of races from the Billown Circuit in Castletown and just like the Pre-TT this event is unmissable.

It is a smaller event, in comparison, but a great way to get your final racing fix before ending your TT journey and sailing home, so if you can fit it in your itinerary – do so!

This year saw three hotly contested races, namely the 600cc machines in Race 1, the 250cc / 650cc Twins in Race 2 and 1100cc Machines in the final race.  In the same vain as the past fortnight lap and race records fell with new lap records in every race and new over all race records in the 250cc / 650cc Race along with the superbike race!

Southern ‘100′ Racing are pleased to welcome
Blackford Financial Services as sponsors of the
Pre-TT Classic Road Races.

The Pre-TT Classic Road Races have been held on the 4.25-mile Billown Course since 1988 and have grown in popularity since the first race, to such an extent that the race programme has had to be expanded to cater for the number of competitors wishing to take part.

Hear and smell the machines of the past and take in the enthusiasm and atmosphere that is special around the circuit as spectators mingle with the competitors. The unique Open Air Concours d’Elegance of Racing Machines in Castletown Square where many of the machines are ‘fired-up’ is a fitting end to the event.
