On the twenty four racist started the race and there were just over fourteen finishes right on to the junior race, which stok place in the afternoon on Saturday. I was track side watching the start.

I was in command of the race row for lot through Francesco gringer team. Matt Coverdale supported race which said was gaining fast on maxs and Williams. It's like four dawned.

Review will revolve around the senior classic race yesterday Silk Race and the Big One, the senior thanks on prey. But before we cover that in our next podcast, I'd like to touch upon now a feel for aspects we experience of the past eight,...

...eight to nine days on micro shows. I'm sorry it does even notice a few days ago appending out covering the arm. I've got to say this is an absolute mostly if you're a petrol head. There's machines of all kinds of it. There's a fire, engines, cars, there's just there's engines, offers, trophies as helmets, bits the psychis as boats, it's it's got a bit of everything. I can say if you're if you're a petrol head and in particularly if you're a t t fan. You woke up your shot of looking at incredible bites memorabilia, racist Memberbil and showing clots of Richard Nunky, quail, David nobbs. So had the pleasure of meeting Kevin igomphe, Steve's lock, John This Mba well and no enjoy unlock, Chris Palmer, liberate, Alan Bug Jackson, litorate, Marck Finnegan, but mcintire. There's all whole programs on display. Even so, there is up shape or start...

...shape for the t T. I played from around the late forties, early fifties. That was that was fascinating reading. It was a black chat, old school lack chat, which, of course, lots of journal was still the always in terms of covering races. O Myself. We'll just take off that. So what what happened then in those days in terms of covering racing? Still goes on to look just overall, a great building, a great museum, I got to say, no questions, with the best music of marketing around. But they're going. I'm biased because I'm a very regious and journalist and like things of engines and much point in general, but it's but it's definitely something I keep saying if you're a petrolized it's a must visit. Also come to Tunesday. We also visited for the first time JB Air Field Circuit, which I haven't visited before performing some state. Is Great Circuit,...

...very similar lesson solvings in Carnaby sircuit gives the running Yorkshire exceptionally fast. It's almost it's almost got the essence of a road race. It's on an airfield. See it's very similar to say, to Openton carnaby. Also Donnie Rickhoff and the disco trenching circuits that help hop based meetings in Swak here and she vaki and trek pub. So it's it's another unique circuit and it's also a great testing round the TV competitors and makes and pre competitive, as many who started their careers. But also JAB is a great circuit test testing in general. I remember the Norton Team Testing there with Josh Brooks, David Johnson, prime McCormack testing it as a read competed in his last nights from prey.

Should mention recently he's tested it. Tested it Jairba before race week. It's just a it's a really nice place. It was a nice atmosphere. Was a nice family atmosphere. Everybody's doing a great time. It was quite cool in the morning but it didn't gradually warmed up. It just reminded me in a way as well. The voil was about that. But you know that that that that family varb when you go around the paddock and walking up top of the what watched the race and he was its simplicity, but but, but niceness to it undistilled. I think it's the word so yes, so that that. They're just another two of the places we visited on my shows recently. But in general a great time for us biker mentioned in the recent articlem sure everybody's experience is stiffly depending upon your situation, which is having it is an important point to make. Obviously, guys are looking fade back to...

...the you look down the schedule up. Um, I think I'll go. I'll touch more upon this in the next podcast, but what we'll say is that at the end of the classic Soaked Bay race it left me failing. I won't say deflated, but but won't it more. I guess felt why we just endered the core crups of Rasticly, after this year's Marx Goan prey, with the atmosphere just intensifying, the racing, intensifying everything, building, building, building, and all of a sudden it was stopped. But I'm sure there will those that will will stay. This is a good change. It's almost say it's a bad change at the end of the day, when the event was changed the nine days, it was always going to provide different opinions. Oh, that's all for today and I can say is that up to I'll tune in for the next podcast, which will be all around our second part, where we're going into the twin chains too, might jumpert. Bye.
