ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Given it's what would have been TT fortnight, we couldn't really not focus on the world's most famous road race, could we?

Our TT special podcast showcases our views on a range of TT topics including Parc Ferme, the paddock, Sidecars, the scoreboard removal.

We also touch upon how we prep for reporting on the race days and I throw in a paddock tale from a fare few years ago.

Not forgetting another bamboozoler quiz question with a TT twist. Fingers crossed for TT 2022!

Or here is anyhow in England or the rest of the week the temperature is going up and you know, drive to a pair for condition and look like winds perfect for a perfect ye, perfect, but I can in two thousand and fourty of all everybody inside, I don't know.

You can actually feel the atmosphere. Yeah, if there's such a thing, but I can. I can feel it built. You feel the billy that we can feel and all the fans start from everybody. This will help the fans. It's nothing is oh yeah, and it's still steadily builds up. There's there's a typical big activity at the race office. The team's all start pulling the own ends up, you know, and then obviously screw a near in stats. And I like it when all the all the guys have all got the bike Sol bringing them up for school engineering, which is I are any but going from stuvenering it, I was very interested that it...

...was going to go fast and it takes up first older riders and but it's good. It's good. It's sold part of the builder. Obviously that last time we had a bit of a bit of rain through the week and we can't put it in mouth. So once doing the countdown thing and then it it was then going fifteen minute delay fifty boats, everything run, but that's that's it. That's what the Tata Yeah, okay, so, yeah, but, yeah, I miss it desperately and I'm sure the race is doing a lot of other people, though, but I've been optimistic to will get a full tt Manch Grand Prix quassy to to look next year. Obviously also the some one hunderd I've got, yes, you something, which is a fantastic event. WHO also in so other end of the pretty class it from first eating wrist. Yes, yeah, yeah, which raised on the bound plan circuit. Yeah, but on SAC it. So, yeah, there's...

...a lot to look forward to and I'm sure there a lot of the banks people. I mean, I'm desperate from them all, lots of desperate for esterday. Yeah, so, yeah, I'm just, yeah, just living it up the clock, sticky down. Yeah, it's just cutting that the weather focus. We've had an every thing as whim and and I've just read that the Benby creues come back after his second second yeah, sorry, a seven week overhaul and refit. And even Betty still read that. They been doing a real sick at issue and others Liverpool, but Liverpool's getting a young thing anyhow. But it should did. Definitely wanted up and if anybody's been with the SUPCASE, is that the lot what I mean. But Oh, yeah, that's experience. Is a nightmare. That needed doing. So yeah, that's would so all for a little bits and see all that in operation...

...next year. So bring it on. thingles cross a part managers. I feel of our tales of been in the paddock. Everyone in the first time. I walk through the paddoquet until Thomson down. I was ever what walking through and was near. It was capable will do some create ration transfer and I almost woked into this chance for I think I ever came from all looking across thin Ki. I was up. was looking him while, but he said I'll come on a day. Did. Yeah, it was anybody direct. Let's also remember him. So, Steve Play, it was reading US paper, don't I remember? I sat on the ways on there. Well, I'll remember at the town was was right, right, you had last before. I'm dirt the races. When you go into the Paragot your towns, I would previous thinking don't seem real when you see on TV. Then we see him in patient. Right, Oh, yeah, I asked US see pretty you know, I well, yeah, the people, people, add of those people know. Yeah, but ideo similar. Oh yeah,...

...that pet guys anywhere. That really is said, that just got that talent. Yeahs yes, a motorcycle, very, very fast, which is a very difficult thing to do in my head, but they do it to destroy it early, which is, you know, credit to them. Like Oh, yeah, so care as likes the Wa St ul of think we're off was seeing because it's punic Qu especially a round them mountain course. Just it's the biggest test of man machine, no question about it. And we was put menially guards to sea. So free willing and they would have been sponsoring the Sich ares is. Yeah, yeah, well, is it's ferment. Yeah, he's really infusing. Yes, may I feel a bit, a bit, a bit, a bit sad way want to go. That's sad. That's the wrong way. When you go to the TT and then the sack, as it usually in the hit, hit lane. All that enough...

...way to go out. Yeah, and I'm always quite surprised that there's novel for photographers down there. YEA disregards exactly, but I look in there because, you know, they're always, always welcoming, they always want to pitch take it and I think you know it's I think that. Yeah, they delicate the creditors. Is that that's a good thing from the media? I don't think so. Yeah, I'll go to back over both free will and I am. I think it's called Chris per. He's trying his best to promote me as other last four or five years. Yeah, I think is. He's daughter takes photograph. Yes, I don't know it, but yeah, you under it. On Beard, the dad of been supporting the sacrist. We have the sad cares. Yeah, you shaving the black and publicity and he believe are promotion, obviously, but that's got enough pass around the block. Everybody already knows that because but yeah, we know. Hopefully there's a break. fouish of Sacre Rasient Tas. It's unique, it's different, but there's going to be a different season. Yes, I see. I say say how which are but we solved recently. They're more when you Wu...

...and Dane Sale, wouldn't the record here outfit over seven ndred and eighty say say so. I think we always trying to get ahead of the the care so the Games, because I think he's one of them. One of them goes to an Alam says it in the Super Competitive and way that every Bo body was the front between the top five six front is gonna have to follow. So, yeah, a Basel's got old and the fans, brothers, comrade, and also the crow brothers, customer on either. Yeah. But yeah, well, that would be interesting, interesting, very interesting shift and very interesting to see if to do announced that they are to winning next year, which allots to be in quite a quite early on yet on what it says. Well, when I read it on pom lamb first I thought this is this is going to the radar bit this. I think she underestimate how bigger change this cup day. I'm happy. That's a sad case. Yeah, so I'd be very interesting to see. or wells convey over maybe.

I think this is might be some of the reasons behind in your red spit to try attempt over, I feel the British Championship. So we've got road racing and it say Tom Maybe remember a few years back it was I think it was rickie Stevens, our British champion. It was looking at potentially competing at the tasted. Didn't happen, but he did go over. We look at the look at the course. So you never know when's lot of big names. So I think maybe you could see considered doing the taste. We haven't got round to it. Yeah, it's a big commitment. It's a massive of it and yeah, they show, you'll see a bridge, Grand Prix whatever. What we're talking three or four days, I don't know, but two weeks, two weeks and I'll see you go. If you go across earlier as well, like some of their early ferries, you three weeks. You know lot around as obviously he's a three weeks. So it's a massive commitment and obviously enough s that with that was welcomes. The cost,...

...remember, I think was it? It's an ill say, cost of sixty ground with the trucks getting across. And but they've got big sponsors. Oh yeah, yeah, but it's a big commitment. Obviously, the publicity. Oh yeah, publicity is a massive everything. But with a real big teams it does balance out. I've let that. Wouldn't do it and the won't commit that one now and the sponsors will let them if they want, if to want the turn around selling match in days and television rates and things like that. So yeah, so big, so big business, and I've been interested in for next year is out. The pubt selves going to be a little ful fingers cross bold goes ahead, because he's in recent times that what would have been pattock is now we come more of a like like a corporate area in it. Yeah, well, that the stay and part mays become effectually paddict and pad it says, become effectually prodent. Date, sir,...

...because it was. It was the first times I was in two thousand and seventeen and it was it was a bit. It was a lot different. What was you still because previously, as you've got around, you know, thinking as its probably that's probably thin, and say means I mean what you made of the your Padt set up in us. Is they personally I don't like it, but it's not for me is yes, they say Alwa was before I had it, as well as to do with fire eggs. Yeah, different things. But the thing that's really good, if me, is knocking all the school board down. Yes, yes, as as I could say, I did have write good luck be and to see he's like. But I'm sure I could have repaired it. But well, that's to sit wait and see what they're going to put in it. I think it's rumors. So we our chronic and maybe a mix of trying to trying to keep old style and anyway, I want to wait and see what we have to put some of there because it looks right or where he's blank. Well,...

...we will be getting. We getting up there tod and basically an end of an area you know for all the all the years. You know when you searching a bother things, you must associated with the TAT ISS tat a scopold was one thing of be interesting is the regards that at the course for next year. It is the resurfacings. Every year, of course change you. So we've UN til years. I will walks and past be much smeow been going to be interested. I think I read what every top day narration and Peter Written and said I'll it's it's going to take a bit to get get back into the swing of things. Let's go out with you feel practice notes. I think there is a week like we about this. Yeah, on the our is what the need they we should mentions all regards. Potentially your comes in the field shops quite al and stow up in to it as it now fear everything. Those who works to meet the day doing two thousand twenty...

...and two thousand and twenty one about in a way. Two years later you can say buy on boards and yeah, even so arises that you can't beat are, you can't get all. That's it's obvious year. Yeah, so it's just stood so pig those are things. That's because, yeah, think, fingers cross and may will the bamboos.
