We cover them all, the aforementioned brands plus Pirelli, Bridgestone and Michelin.

Our latest podcast also features a round up on the CRMC action at Mallory Park, Julian Trummer's first Oulton Park tenure.

Wi focuses on two thousand and nineteen senior tit whin it dean Harrison, who is from this season, and for the twenty, twenty twenty two international road season, switching from metroller times to dunlop tires. We make up well is that it is a very great sus a subscive years mom on mets list and with no disrespect to metslert as they was like well, was considered the the as well as not a superior to dunlops. But in recent times of got better and better. They have got in, proved, in proved and he's had some good results for him. But now he's on Dune boss. I mean, obviously we don't race or anything, but but the but most of the guys are doing the roads. The top teams of it seemed to be running on dunlops totaly. So you've put Dean on dunlops doing that. I mean Dan's not daft, is Amiss. One mess is done affect you. For why things written on the lot on fex fat for factor Michael One, fairly three nine sixty. Yeah, so it'll be quite interesting that the TT next year. I mean if you look at the fastest laps, at the taste, the majority don't on dunlops. Oh yeah, by one way the fastest on mats. WHO's doing? Yes, so he's the one. What's a lot, but big fair. I think we'll seeing in recent times front of a not today. So be interested as to see all mets the run, if they're going to on the roads. Lee Johnson store running mats for us is as another might have kids done lots of them anyway, not to shot. But yeah, well, were interesting. Yeah, because I can't see him pulling out with not.

But he said it's quite a cool getting d narration to switch and mats of the dumblocks for Tating two and twenty. So why is it? Well, obviously I'm not dean am H, but as an outside, yeah, this is bad point of view as an outsider day and I know what I know. Yeah, but I've seeing what everybody else doesn't on the roads. I'd want to be on the dumb loops. And Yeah, well, I wait to our I think since since two thousand and ten has been also provide seeny racism won, bidal lock credited races. Apart from there, see twenty two and saying and they irishon months. It's going to be interesting. Yeah, so I made that. Obviously dumb looper banging a lot of more money in there that they the ouse and also interested on the narrishons our brandom bastes for themlop and they're SOSPETER Rickman. Yes, so, yeah, it's all part of the good picture in it. Yes, in it's old business as well. They interesting to find, I was all we done. What found out? The originally formed been one thousand eight hundred and eighty nine, right, fairty years old. Oh, yeah, the very yeah, the PARLAT them said the company was called John Dunlop. I mean they have the big, big factory in wolve ups and didn't they? Yes, but that's close and I think yeah, to the been...

...we go for a long time. They so also in sponsored last year's seen you sat. Yeah, yeah, that they put a lot into the big, yeah, the Big Internet sort of word meeting. So they because, you know, obviously it's a called brand in it. When you general tie, your companies are getting more and more involved. In Rother Substitut with Mitchell in it. Scar, which is matchler, British, still involved as well. I don't know if good years been him tie you brads. They also Parelli. Yeah, that's that's really way. I like metslally on the Parili for ever. So, yeah, for as was selling. Yes, yeah, yeah, so pearly's blocks make surely in Brig it's still don't. Dumb lots have been around for a long same. E Von Tires we should mention. Oh yeah, s one. That a lot of a lot of the sad care teams that there is restricted on what says is available that they but everyone put. You know, they're put the money where the mouth is here and don't put you know, they put a truck out there. Don't the end of dull play time. Say Yeah, it was a good little set up. Yeah, obviously I we done locks up. When you say that, that's that's what the it's. Obviously it's a meal's a main thing for them. And I was very interesting when you walking around the paddlets you see what, watch the tire techniciues. You got be skilled, an't you? It's well, it's a lot of responsibility if that's are fitted on correctly and it blows off or obviously its hundred days all in that way. Yeah, you know. So. I was just in a photography point of view as well. Post race, I remember in two thousand and Sixtey you got a picture of the tiger, Michael Unlock be ablest to wreak like record. Yeah, along with the bout a million other people. Yeah, yeah, well, but another damp picture to go to out the yeah, we are.

Well, the DEBTA if it is right on and the other. Yeah, she'll cuss like it's a way of showcase is. Oh yeah, well, also in the Games here in the pass way it was racing. I would really passed with the classic racing. MOSTCYCLE couple compete in there and amongst the frontrunners. There was so many Cambots in the day. This smells like it took no less than five wings. Yeah, he's doing good in there. So in stort of the the bottom of a big, big Bluey, big tree cut down used to before with his chainsaw on the top. He's a he's getting a lot of right times. I think over this this last year in the bit all it's up the road races. I don't really guess. He's done close to the most fright town. Yeah, because he is. He is he in the Spring Cup? Yeah, we count racy. Yeah, so he'll be. Yeah, it'll be. It will be be roaming to to go. It's very will be bake for also my really packs. I don't Nethers B top Classic Fist Racer. Want a lot of beard, a lot of respect wherever it was, but everyone very real rasential. But I don't know. It was baby's a bit of an error on that and I got to talk to him last year. That the Gold Cup. I think it was a parachuting classic or The barishing carry. So yeah, yeah, and it was quite put Potbo when I said to quite a lot. I said to him your house was but dis good is he's he's mega with his old any girls. was also competing awesome with abats in clairs, good yester, a classics racer. Yeah, and also Bosts, a good, good racer, and easy severss a was yeah, good way. Yeah, he can tell his and twelve racing collect fucked Ruckah, it did fluctuate racing in America and he he's got his own seal. Yeah, she's somewhere, but you see, he's yeah, he's. You knows, his stuff does paid for me. So those also over the passway. Kendo was the PMRS Mur upon part meeting and one of the competitors there was Julian from it,...

...your commersalten park. As she fought Julian, the weather wasn't suppose the best for the one who was and the other lot of bad. Look, he had an energy. The chicol problem pretty race one, but is the why? HAH, racing s fos of the are are being and in the second race they've been in sing the base. All right, yes, and track down and Julian and he's uppings compete are my right. So I've been sed as as Julian Amongst Austria's best racist under in the two thousand and sixteen will comes back from prey. But yes, yeah, and it's also been a putting finish at Froberg. Jens James must famous active road speaking. Coming up this week it's going to be Europe the ban new road race in Mexico called the Durango race is run by the Cave road race organ houses. Sort of keeping close eye on that. It's in a way to be similar to the cave road race. It's nature. But again, great to see more road races in North America's getting bigger and bigger. The following incent in particular in Central America, Mexico. Yeah, as well they can. I can see the big market. Obviously Columbia as a day of our road race. Not a Mossi have the valley. They have a massive passion for motorcycles. Grows in Mexico and God, good to say mentioned heat a creationally will be running free rounds at the sprinkle. Oh yeah, so a began. Col that is in it, Dan Irison, map race and Thomas Maxwell or Thomas Maxwell. They know, know it. Elsbron, nobody's are the Thomas Maxwell. We know about Thomas Maxwell. He's no, no, slow, slow game. Thomas Rograssing chunds though about yeah. Well, yeah, but he's and he's he's level as he is. He's got a great approach to his race. He has. So we're really looking for to seeing in the scamper's been a scambard before, I like. There's a cooms a new conway. It...

...was choky. There was a jam shop. Yeah, James Show. So yeah, it will. It will tell with it quite quick or would have thought. Yeah, it's completely not a circle twin. I think he's also going to have a six hundred there, but I'm not sure, not sure. I love be if he's on the supper twitt that I'll be about right, I feel. Any scabre's, you know, it's a very right. Yeah, I've also got twentions with the heat races read rejuncted to the Spring Court. Yes, well, it's a lot of controversy after it. I think it's good, but you see, the the used to be heat. So all the meetings years ago, yeah, and it was just I remember, no matter where it was shiny and granny and perishing all the rest them all out of the ways and it's gone with it and now there's a lot of controversies this. But now he's fair. But as such as a scarborough. The races in no longer than eight laps any other most of them six and as we all know that after the Fed lap, the roll seven, sectioning off from the front to the rear. The AMT adders in a race anywhere. They so obviously some races you can get a footing, grouper, seven or eight kit, some very occasionally. Yeah, but to set off all together door, Oh yeah, yeah, so I and it's this same for everybody else. So I think it's, as I mentioned, done in an are Cole reason. Obviously it's contracted an extraction, but having you some a bit different. So well, it's it's different what ing what it is is before it was sound practice. Yes, so they used to go out and look for a space, didn't they? And the benifast lapping and I get that. I don't get that it's so qualified. But the thing is with it, with it, with the heats. Yeah, he's a road...

...race ofder. was talking to what the weekend said. If there's a heat, you will got to get that whole shot into me. Right. So there's only there's only a gap there in the for so many routers to get that old shot. And if they've gone up that Elen the underneath that bridges, you're getting into that Apie, you've got a heck of Aage thing to catch up to him. So I can see the point of view what what this guy was telling me. So I get that. But it's going to be heat. So there's got to you've got to think of a different strategy on there where we're going to be. Wish you mention is all that in terms of the results in the heats. That exactly the Yes, is so many qualifying perfuy for the air BEA support risks getting based on the fastest lap? Yes, so if you break down, if you've done it, I want fifty point four. So well, when it would qualify, if I'm many, how many is the form many ends a race? It's twenty ten. So well, if we're looking pay, it's roughly going to be seven. No, but I'm no money. Bakes are going out in a heat two thousand and two, twenty two, so over twenty. Yeah, so what? How many of them can qualify in the heat? I would be qualified to get through to the you know, to the a fam. It's going to be based on the lap times, on the laptams. So if so, if you aage, so I'm assured me that Dan and Lee will be there. Right. If the at yeah, so that day backup points at the then all that. Sadly. So, if you're like six and you're own a group of radders of whatever rathers the air and you're hanging on the tail of them, you're going to get a fast lapping at it. It's almost a bit like you know, watch them. I'll be like, you know, when you watch them running races, you don't have to get certain time to get to the little bit about a bit like that. Yeah, yeah, so they some of differently. I mean at the Phosol at...

La Times be Bo the imagine for each with let's say David leaves up one fifteen. The thing is, the thing is, if you did, I mean I don't know, but date I would have thought Dan'll go out in his aid and and as long as he's if's still round as in front of him and they're are in front of him, battle or three bikes, it's going to it's just going to steal within it and maybe, just maybe, banger fast slapping, because that will did dedacted. Depicts where you're going to be on the grid it, so long as you're on that front land from a alsoia. That seems to me rapping, which is a four adders on the front Bro. Yes, it goes for three four, three, four, three, I think than it anyway some like that. So, yeah, so the old know this strategrapp it's crucial. Yeah, but the old noticeable, the old know this strategy. Oh, yeah, yeah, so, yeah, so right on it. Yeah, it's somewhat different as it's making a get of an all time great subscribe, Garrat. It is it's planning to compete, should say, it's hoping. been massive amounts of publicity about this, which is, you know, I'm quite surprised as being on the on a media thing and talking all about it all this look, because it's quite coolstible wars in they but yeah, it's good that he's going and it makes tend to put the spring computer. Yeah, is put in doing supperbate racing and class is doing is be on these gigsu and his bass, which is fair enough. So it's is can get more. Was a bit of fun than be Super Serious? Yeah, obviously you got to be serious. Yes, bis of speed and all. I suppose that's very much on you. When he fasted out. Yeah, yeah, it's good for the fans. And here. Oh yeah, built, is it build, Bill Kennedy? Is that how I yeah, he's chucked a little bit balls in.

It's going to that's good. Was it was nothing? It's not confirmed. He knows that. And Gas partners from something else and someone now and then here, which back at a bit of a bit of an all of the year as well there. Yeah, yeah, could only speaking around where. You as well done Gamson's don't lookings competed. So it's believe it secreation team as well. Yeah, well, there. Well, well, and also the Trishana bill and steams up its compete as well, and other members of their team is the La should be Barry Davidson over eighty five times in aarri's foods where. Yeah, yeah, that's in duel and it let you like Le Sure. Well, what was we got to mention over gradante twenty and twenty. So you're seeing some bits some banks radio which from fairly positive with the gads looking to watch t t two thousand and twenty. They very supposed to att last next year. Very, very surprised victor isn't one. We'll open the moldromatic. He's crucial in it. It runs next year because two years. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, it needs to. It will, it will. Baffo knows positive up this and they maybe was at Laurence skelly from the department and surprise. Oh well, we've got some LC and coming this week we've got the ound of the risking news website. We have, yeah, yeah, to keep you out on that. Yeah, looking forward to it and I an understanding where, yeah, there's been a lot more under the same that they're not badly, but by by,...

...yeah, everybody else. Oh yeah, yeah, thanks to everyone and all the bambos. The questioned last week because was the spring up titles found some thousand and one went so Drean nashvilld yeah, we should know whether you e's quite surprising because it yet he had scabbed between scabbed with fair few years, but it's only one. So you don't think of him as the front of her up scambre. You know we often scratch the front of the Irish nationals at the TATA. It's obviously on the sprink up on red bull on it. Yeah, yeah, I was on until a go on it twenty. Yes, when he is good mustershes. I've got to think oft offication for the for the Bam bamboos left. If you've got a question. Yeah, I've got all. Fair all on the Gold Cup that olivers about in that hundred and seventy five I was the first time I ever went. All right, well, it's just story more than that. For this week and the same Sunder's another thing. This journalist Dj called D Care Shirt. It was dead the same days. Maybe he is said the same story that had said about this personal one. So they have it some of different for this podcast. That bumbos with question from them. So yeah, so it's left to say. Is Is. I hope you've enjoyed the podcast and will be back next week, hopefully. Point exciting games and it's it's Spring Cup. That's spring up the sorry or sorry, but cops, we should men should actually do what?
