Before reflect on the sixteen arm Scarpe Gold Cup ja, everything great where they're but a great crowds was fortunate to other than was fantastic racing overall. Yeah, in the last two years out the four meetings, I think there was way over you some decent yeah, and it's end up it was. It was very windy, but apart from that it was spot on and the racing was excellent and there was some fans allowed it, not a lot, but the ones that were. There was a bad in by all the rules and regulations and everything was all in place. And Yeah, I fully enjoyed it and it was a free day meeting and I could get used to a free day meeting. It's a bit like if in the S, in the in the s and the S, when you do uself three day Gold Cup in the day. Yeah, so I have thought it was excellent here as a reflecting on the race and got to reflect first up on the Gold Cup race and me laugh record when I think eleven and twelve times and was really Johnson returned the Gold Cup. I just over point two the second day Irish and it was this an incredible soup spot record. One Minute forty four, point eight four to second. Yeah, that some of alievable in it. It is shows you the skill of them, of the riders are racing around there on the machines that they have no ideas. I was there. Stunning was that let's gaping man's well we doing first time on the our seat express race and came with obviously first time back with the ASS express teams ince two thousand and fourteen. The first time on the ASS expressed teams at six OURC I was a in current current model. Yeah, just shows...

...it is shows the skill that lived that Dane Scotland. They were to build to jump on any machine. Most we should mention or see Lee Johnson now twice even show a Gold Cup with it and it was nearly sub one minute forty five mark. Yeah, well, they're well, Lee said an nigger. Any how, an maybe he's he's said it's well, it's just a fantastic road race. or any is a one minion and they've got to have a good machine and that, but you've got to build to read it and and you know you got to take her out of t yeah, it was also add a motorcycles to like. Yeah, obviously one four at the five soup spot races. I'll see. I'm included the Gold Cup as a circle sport race because it's pretty much the six hundreds. Yeah, so in terms of the boy of a massive ten out of six hundreds again, oh hum, sixty plus. Yeah. So so it's the enthusiasm from the competitors. Is there? So, Pat Tell? Yeah, participate. We're assing at Scarborough and obviously they have been any recent anywhere else in England. But Al did. He feels as it's scabage younique. Yes, it's. Yeah, we're all coming back and they're enjoying it. And yet the track look good to me. Were now, when you know being around it, it will good to me. Everything was in place. It looks spot on and we'll be ample indeed in the go corpor race. was there jokey osture Thompson to fifty sort of form final two D and fifty sort of form the races. Yeah. Well, he's done a lot of racing this year and he because it's been doing a very cheepy too class. Yeah. So, yeah, yeah, well done. Due and I've seen fourth less with Jim hynds. Obviously have him Sut scaber again. Fantastic form on super tween, six hundred two structure. Yeah, it didn't, it didn't. It didn't feel not so produced the goods today and unfortunately had a little off. He had a big off and the in fant six hundred, ifl six hundred race coming up the top of Quoreo into where approach to sees went up the bank pretty shuck...

...up. But is who was okay. But part from that it did well, did Jim also got two interviews on Pearl. For them to sport are races in front of the jeans under A. Yeah, so you know, in fact that's not a mean, no mean for it whatsoever. But s well, have to see what he does next year. Always with interesting what is riding. So hopefully we'll get a full years where for racing and then we'll see what happens and see if he can, you know, push up get right up there with Dan and Lee only and Dane, which every which we are already want to put it. It was just out to go course to Jamie Coward when the first who super tween races and then took the same new super twins are recording the fatles to a dress. Yeah, yeah, it is, because he had a slips off in one of the races and he in the fair show between races battle with Dana. Yeah, yeah, but but you've got it. Came back from that and yeah, and you are record. Yeah, it's he is out a fantastic yea with all the meetings. He's obviously not only oiver's mountain. It's a good reason the limits met in has it been to angles? There was a Donington. Yeah, it was at Donington. He had an off there, then he came back and one all the races and next days and he was pretty but not just by a couple of seconds. I buy a lot of the sting races at Don into one by over thirty five seconds. I mean that's that's a massively din it is on what you call this your say, because I think he's Jamie's definitely made the most of all the the races. Is Out this year. Question big. It would have been good to seeing on the press racing six hundred scab but obviously, because obviously regulations because the press team, as we know, he's based in La Man. What was it, Lekro? Great to see Sarah Cows back at Scarborough? Yeah, yeah, it was because when never had any of the Irish enquirishing classic. The racing was spot...

...on as usual. And of course they've got a different paddock. So there was on the top in field was their paddock. Will put say's out. So that's where they entered. The tractor bung all the way around to get it stayed in this lamb. They did need a bridge, S is out. Yeah, of course we had the Vail's Chels, their teaching champions, which was at which was a cool for scarborough and if all been on that, they did enjoy it. It's what technical issues with their outfit. We've got a fair place finishing the finishing me I think they're already the seventh very fastest team industry scart after one meeting or as Mount. Oh yeah, those that's the only got to watch them race. Yeah, seel whole good. They and because there was Conrad want they's gone right down the Ramsden's, Ramsden's and there, of course we had Michael Rossi at their father and son team chapels more an ash the million chandlers. Yeah, there's a good but it could goods lead for all from Scott Addy dominant. Obviously we in all four races. And Yeah, and they had a had a the folks and now they sent them down to beverly to repair and I think they is one of the Christian brothers, Chrissy brouwers. Well, their door the well sack as well. A sad yeah, they are doing a British championship. Can't see them. It would go. Yeah, talent. So you got the fat folks back at the end of the day so he could qualify and the rest of his issue on the and that on race dare. So yeah, very, very goods when I talk to him in the paddock. So it's makes teats. They still open skets of the TT then do we deput said till right am. So there's something to look forward to. All there for sad care fans. I got the so you can never tell people and adapt to the mountain girls, but I think they're you can just tell the cut here with yeah, yeah, it's not. When you when you watch leave and...

Scott, the smooth is got. It's got idea yeah, race. They're not all over the place, so they should. You know, the were in there there. So yeah, I think they'll do all good to get to tt get to the teams. You should have bentioned at the penultimate bs been meeting the one, the only sarchirist on in some back. Yeah, you know, for the got the top top national rose in ends of the Britick Sacca. John Alden was there when, I think it was. Yeah, and was till maybe I want there on Tim moves there, but everywhere I'll live was way likes like Andy Kershaw Todd. Yes, yeah, totally see. There's their regulars that hit the big short sacuit, ranch o wood, you know. And see how we've already between them. The one now, the in Scotland, scarborough, twenty two races, League fairteen wins and Scott Mostiple, Dean irison free the four classes. So quite races.

Go see Tom Robinson wining free to four super spot be race. Yeah, Total Tom, yeah, is one of the characters in the place, Scott, his battles where back to fitness and a foot. Yeah, yeah, it was. It was quite badly into one thought. Yeah, we did well. Did talking to go back to the pantsont year? Yeah, of course we had there, Nick Anderson back. Yeah, got to say Nick backers, Nick's brook, his colub on a field times and he had major problems with that pot. It was back our years on it. Yeah, competitive, like all the road races are using. Actually, I think on broader Middleton's said itself. One becomes like yeah, that's a Magg I think that's about that done free. But they was a symbol, one of Roxy Bilton's bikes do yeah, former lap record on scabor because they're nick's...

...obviously a scabborough local. Yes, and the yeah mentioned there was Sarah Smith and Brian Clark with first down. When is in the Non Qualifiers? Racism during till it'son one day. Other subspot very racial. Shame. I think. What was an instant involving Tom Robinson and David mccockney and the first spot by US false having fat right both of relatively, and yeah, it was it. Unfortunately, the mccockney was ruled out dusted the making nothing after that. It's but then he's the one scaber chipping the work his purse. I was we should mentions all regard. Instance, got to wish your AC rod well. Yeah, yeah, that was a bit bit, bit crap that. But yeah, just bit suffering with his back and he's aggravated his back injury.
