Re: No carbs at the sidecar TT

As a sidecar fan and Marshal, all I want to see is a full grid and good racing, I don't give a monkeys if the motors are efi, carbed or on viagra.

Re: IOMTT.COM refurb

From what I understand it was that influential people who did not like some of the 'home truths' (not abuse) about the way things were being run, so they decided to pressure on to get rid of a very useful forum.
The forum fell foul of The 'Manx Mafia' :roll:

50th Anniversary in 2012

With all the recent excitement and sidecar publicity concerning the possibility of Michael Dunlop racing one, it would be nice to remember that TT2012 will mark 50 years since Chris Vincent and passenger Eric Bliss won the TT on the BSA outfit. In times when mega expenses are paid for ex solo riders...

Re: TT3d Closer To The Edge

Just got back from the 1135 showing of the film, and what a film it was! only 7 of us there, it really needs more publicity, my only downside was the lack of sidecar action.
Roll on June and a safe TT11 to all.

Re: Place to find Sidecar crews @ TT 2010

You would have found a few sidecar crews on the start line for the 2 races, but sadly not many! :(

Re: 2011 TT

the money should be put towards the riders and teams that race and finish races(even to the last place riders...). Be fair Matt, Someone racing on a shoestring budget may have put all his/her effort into getting over and competing and may have a fortnight of bad luck and not finished, you were fort...

Re: 2011 TT

You are right in some ways Dave but I think that those 'getting paid' for the TT should cover all classes. All classes? hope you don't mean solos? Certainly a 'Sidecar Day' would raise the profile of chairs and I'm sure that a number of teams would support it too. What about 'taxi rides' at Jurby i...

Re: 2011 TT

I don't know exactly who you are referring to when you say about the 'big' names and expenses, I can only assume its Reeves, Klaffi. Moly and last year the Birchalls. We do need these crews as long as others do not suffer because of the expenses paid. Once upon a time, they probably also struggled w...
