Road Racing News Podcast Series 2 - Episode 9 - Reality With Positive Vibes

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

The real road racing fraternity worldwide was dealt with a major blow ahead of the 2021 season, with the announcement that TT 2021 was cancelled.

Our latest podcast as you would expect focuses on the absence of TT affiliated competition for a second successive year.

Alongside the TT 2021 abandonment we also give mentions to up coming road racers Gary Broughton and Tom Gigg, chat about upcoming new Sidecar TT regulations.

Plus there's another plug for our RRN merchandise, the Manx GP Top 6 series and of course there's the bamboozoler.

We're missing. Used procast. I named Steve Your Aldy to grow res used to court UK and, as always, enjoining by Madame Steve Group Ki e body. Well, this week's podcast we've got to focus on the cancelation of the two thousand and twenty one t t races. I was incredibly disappointing use for the road racing community, but you feel wished it's the right season yet in my opinion, I think they've had a very, very difficulty decision. So may as the man's government and the sat down and thought about it and I think, to be chull full the bed, the right decision because of the way the things at the moment and things are escalate now from from today on a positive set. But they've also made the decision to not make a decision on the classic stroke Manx Grand Create Match that should match. So I'm...

...feeling very proud of a pump on that. I put a tenor on that will go ahead, but that's my opinion. But as regards people saying they could have done it, they couldn't have done it. If the hour man was brought it up till the you know, the English mainland, it won't have been a problem. It's because that stretch of water in it. And so I don't get adult get it because they're they're losing a massive amount of money into their economy. Two years on the trot. That's that's a massive hit. So we just got to look forward to the following year. We've got to just focus and keep positive. So that's what's everything. I was reguarding the monks run, pretting the classic started a bowl on regent up, start the ball, I think, stroke up allcom pols and usually up some masking people's opinion on what they think it will run that year. I think...

...that's so far fancy our votes and fifty eight percent of people think it work ahead and for to on sin. So yes, so it's almost it's at fifty people. Yeah, well, I think if you ask them same people that same question in four weeks term, in the New Year, I think you might get a bit that percentage of sets of alternate it will change. Also, one of the other things it will depend upon is is the boarder restrictions being relaxed in the hour man as well? Yeah, you see, if that vaccines being launched and all that vaccine I'll be going to every county in the K in the island and Wales, Scotland and to the islands and I'll be going to the hour man and because they're they've got a good system with the health system and things there, and they'll be to innoculate everybody correct stead of got a hundred thousand durses of the reasoning develop vaccine got in place.

Yeah, so, yeah, so, so you know we're going to get for a while. This is everybody and you will come back. There's been a positive years, obviously. Yeah. Well, also got the other big, massive positive set in us up we especially for the three wheelings fraternity. What's that all this is very, very interesting. From two thousand and twenty two one was your regulations. It's going a little bit under the radar. Sorry, car regulation. It's going to go up from six hundred CC's nine hundred CC. Hell, well, that's a for stroke the AH cares. Yeah, last time we have the TT would have been in the early s at s and so you remembering? What? Yeah, but that was the era of tool strokes in side cars. What same as a solos like and only a thousand sea says. Oh, yeah, you had the thousand on this bomb. The Britain's and you have the real house and that men. Yeah, but that's good that because you'll bill made a good point. I will bring a lot of them thin issue. Well, championship. Yeah, racist, thought thought about going to our man make just Smet and go.

Now I think that's I think it's more for the I think the world championship, six hundred Ce se right, but the the British Championship. But it's forster thouldn't say say it might bring to the great people like Candy Care, Shure, todde issue, you don't know, know, but people this mainly racing on. I was and it might enough. Yeah. So whether I think it's a positive movement, I think you know, all right, it is really it's productivity, it's enterprising. So that's just on the Alaman. Yes, it's just on the Aleman. So in for British for lake four Oliver's amount of capital back around, right. But the wood to the British championship one's got go around couple of packs from the thousands. Yes, yes, the deal dot like. Yeah, so it it doesn't because it's only six hundreds of Oliver's mouth. Obviously the dut race at the northwest used...

...to the instagram pro yeah, they deal. So, yeah, because was talk about getting them back as well. Want the before it before all went. Persia is encouraging its O. Molly was be out. Probably it was one ideas. The rest Archais a maturer. Yeah, they're six of the safe as well. Yeah, well, let's the other happen. I'd be interesting. It is interesting. Yeah, it is, when you think about where there were cutting back on CC's at certain Trans and then the putting that up to down underd on the island. Very interesting. Yeah, bit of Air Investigative Journalism there before you. There should say. I found yourself by Steve Sidecar play Steve English's website. Oh yeah, well, it's spot on. Any is is very, very knowledgeable person. And Yeah, when a bit under the radar this this year, obviously my obst the beings and obviously the TT cancelation, and don't underestimate this as yeah, it's a big development. Is What I'll shift is said. And Yeah, it's at cancelation.

Married two cents on it. It was probably right. It's extremely disappointed. I feel sorry from sly for racist teams, visitors, photographers, follow journalist and booked by but the zoom. The other equation in they is the upset about the southern I was southing yes, yes, separate from from the Auran man, t, T and man. Guess because somebody isn't from bar. The government is run by the yeah, Bill own clubs racing stir. Yeah, at the moment that's it's good. Obviously best tradition in July. We'll keep an eye on that. Yeah, that might go ahead then, because that's it. That's that's that's a big meeting. I said, that's a full we can it. Yeah, was it took it free, free for days, four days. That was a free nights. It's one night's practice.

Yeah, then then they do one other practicition and the racing starts on. We change do that basing all their sort of evening on Wednesday and then the real old it, all their fairs outs it. Yeah. So for day meeting. Yeah, and obviously racing's fantastic round along circuit plus the other. Yeah. So fingers crossed for the suburb. So there's still there's still a lot of positiveness. The words. Yea. Yeah, obviously I've seen and then I notice a TTP for the TC supporters club. They're still going to produce the yeah, they've badges. Yeah, for twenty two thousand and twenty one or any anybody out they are listing rooms. If you usually get a pin badge, like we always do every year, that we you know, available from the TAT supports website. Yeah, obviously as well. So mentioned on the side with this rap showcases reaction from various races and team managers...

...and team members to the the US and cancelations and absolutely interesting perspectives. People are pretty pragmatic and other people enjoy reading the tips, different opinions on it. and Oh yeah, I wanted the year as well. What's coming races? A lot of people might not have heard of them, but upcoming road races, Gary Broughton, Tom gig but fucking stackle for poisoner's Mount Event in two thousand and twenty one. It's good. And shemn stars all that's a green old racing. They're hoping to times scarborough. That's good deals, but it was going to be racing for I don't know what. Yeah, no announcement. Yeah, people joy speculation. If yeah, yeah, but that's encouraging. It's very it's good seeing excaber this year with Dan Arison. And Yeah, obviously it was dominant team. said it's ass and fifty camels. I could and Glen Walker if I'll done it, one hundred fifty pulling finisher.

He's helping to ten to the northwest to undered next year with the GMC seet roofing racing team. The powers in a soapstock cabs actui should all words boat to the northwest of the moment schedule from there, but there is a chance it may move to Augustore September. So we'll keeping out of it. And but the blood big gear was coming from the album recently has been Jamie carward's party company with pressure is. Yeah, that was a bit of a shock.
