It's been a different kind of TT fortnight, no racing but the feel of the TT atmosphere was still there via Manx Radio's coverage, the TT Lock-In show's, the Virtual TT.

Alongside reflecting on the TT 2020 with a twist, our latest podcast also features plenty of positive news for racing fans, ten questions with 2011 Super Twins Manx GP runner-up Joe Phillips and another intriguing bamboozoler quiz question.

Road, MISSUS PODCAST, Dam Steve Reality to addressing us, to put the UK, as always enjoying by the dad. See row, hello, everybody will, fact and foremost would the light. So she would. The thoughts are with the Hail family on the trunky passing of Pauline Hare. Would wait for Macao would yeah, yeah, said town when anybody passes, and there our respects to wear the family well, obviously. Yeah. It's been a few weeks since without our off podcast and of their team podcast episode, and in those two weeks it's what would have been teth two thousand and twenty, but in it then it was. It's been t t two thousand and twenty different. was no racing, but without the TAT locking the virtual TT Manx...

...radio's Mounta Corst memason. Now also the programs actually be for yet the best part. They are really interested in the gaming, because it's don't laughing, but the yeah, the running, the commentary of the old races. Of List to a few of them when I've been off and that's been interesting. And I'm loving the documentaries at the put on our TV for so roll on t t twenty one. And what do you make up the Michael Donop documentary us. Well, that person is in my opinion that was a bit sort of clubbed together really out of it was good. Don't get me wrong that couldn't do it, but I'm just put in my opinion. I think expected to be an interview with Michael Lay addams. I think if I was still give it a say about a film rating. The said it wants to hip staff. I think free is one of the years. And Yeah, yeah,...

...and we gave back to the victual tt and it was some a different reporting on that I ever covered before. He racings was there was something different and the every toddy Marie victories and it wasn't surprised ambassador for the TT round the edgesting game and but it was entertaining to watch. It was good fun say something different. And so the TAT walkings, lots lots of interviews riders. Ob Mans Radio, a mountain cost member. He's not surprised with the interviews with cows out races of race comes at said the tet give it that. I was actually try options sponsoring the man's radio coverage. Yeah, I see Irt me for so ill the package documentary. Yeah, and then also that last night those interviewing of part of one of the them. Theo was interviewing was the Michael One. There was interviewing John, John Mast, and they had his monster energy. CAPACAS, the sponsored band once energy, but...

...add TV. Removed the well. Say This is what done with your bl yeah, yeah, black teas. There is motif off is of sponsors office is CAPI is, which I thought it was a bit odd seeing is that they're the principal sponsor of the Lman t t races. So I do agree with John There, with what you said. Yeah, it's someone going on there and they but I mean in general I think we've not been the TT it. Obviously nothing could replace the racing, but I think it's old. Everybody these little things that have taken place with a coup video, with, sorry, the TV coverages, radio coverage filled the gap, I think there. Yeah, well, look that they have put something there as so, yeah, you got to you've got to applaud them on that. Is Not as just left it up. The well has been lots and years. In recent weeks, long, sad said, of the TT coverage and I was bounced up into untwo meetings. Yes, yes, so free day meetings for...

...team to sixteen for their pull, the barishuting classic Levens to fairteen. August, August, not April. Sorry, yes, I'll readyw so, yeah, that was we all met mistakes. But Take Sixteen of August. Vary lass right here. LEVEN's the thirteen for September to se event. Sure, international? Yes, or it's got real cup in and or the parishing classic. That won't be any side cous now don't know why this is. No, has been the confirmed by overs are organizers. Yeah, but things crossed, both go ahead. Yeah, well, that's quite a well, that In't it? So it's like two weeks into August will got old jewelads to go, which is like for six we've got nearly eight. What you've got a good eight weeks before that kicks off. So the word of reason. Lockdown there doing it every two or three days. And now are they? It's on the scale from one to a hundred. I think it's going sixty fourty at the present moment in town, and when you'll get another month from...

...the belt, providing the are keeps down, I can see that going up till eighty percent. So it's looking yeah, it's good. So you've got to wear sort of agree with the organizers at least to having a go at trying to get something same as we cook. Yeah, exactly. So, if you know, you have to keep plugging away out. Yeah, and also should mention, obviously not roderously, but pretty socer, back yourself in to get back. So, yes, of course they're running at Donington, brands, Alton, Sistan and Silverstone, but they're not going to cadwell or not ill I can send I'm not going to knock hill, but I can't somewhere they're not going to cover because capital gets the biggest crowd of the year and it so quite disappointment on this. Well, that's another thing. But they'll be open for that to but that when's that start? Stats in Joel and the August starts in August. So make it might be bad then that they make the more people, you know, fingers cross. Yeah, but...

...this is going are yes, I mean racing retalian's chairb yeah, yeah, well, aura man's completely back to normal now. When it is the only thing is if you're leaving, you come back. You've got to be quite fourteen days and it's the same with anybody else. So yeah, pubs in everything wrong now that they're yes, yes, it's positive football matches. Yeah, cricket. Everything sold back to normal and the limits events looking. I think there'll be back soon. So some classic racing events. I mean say racing and sharp say its's good. I mean David APPs was victorious at the pen on your room, David, that's a teaching ucomers year in on grades and on the R ring, Lauren aten contesting a spell are as all the better, showing good pace. But Spring Bris me at bringing the check in public and lots of a racist up party so they could marriage to the Charl ander some of the nation on one of the greatest pill from on the machines.

So she'll take events have fully. I think they're enough come back down the sums. You paste on to come back, but ull back soon and the hope the road, all road racing, will see progress events retaining the near future. But he's crossed and John Begins Open stick with the bold car was acute for the two thousand and twenty one season. I see boxy called to day. I mean I think, Oh yeah, but I think I think most of the sponsors will keep them over till next year. Seem with all different shows and things that have gone and up and down the land. That's faking of John Mark W should menationed. I think he was having a test today on his shoe carried day bikes with a racism should carry trumptions coping all right. So we really really to be too. Fully, it should be quite competitive in that. It should be. He should be. Yeah, because to do this production back so they're all the same bike, so that you know, the should the bikes should be all equal. So when he's obviously these is a veteran at setting bikes up and stuff and his wrist...

...all these tracks. So yeah, it had he should be. It should be up there among it should great. And Joe Thompson's open to be back at the eat the oils mount events and other their pack. Yeah, and so he's just in college. It's just in collegs. Richard Childer, I think you'll get a lot more rather as in the English and yes, Cattish, I think Jamie cawards indicated as well that he's up into taking the Gold Cup. Yeah, and he's hinted. Yeah, so we're quite interesting to see. As fingers cross, everything goes ahead and we should also endered know that the pram of caps of coustove have a meeting. A horce has been canceled, but in general I think he was looking a lot more positive. I think that and I answer the ten questions challenge for this legal this week's on ten questions challenge from two thousand and eighteen is with Joe Phillips, father of Cow fillips, who was open to make his marks.
