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!

That's what the TataYeah, okay, so, yeah, but, yeah, I miss itdesperately 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 quassyto to look next year.

Definitely wanted up and if anybody's been with the SUPCASE, is that thelot what I mean. But Oh, yeah, that's experience. Is anightmare. That needed doing. So yeah, that's would so all for a littlebits and see all that in operation...

...next year. So bring it on. thingles cross a part managers. I feel of our tales of been inthe paddock. Everyone in the first time. I walk through the paddoquet until Thomsondown. I was ever what walking through and was near. It wascapable will do some create ration transfer and I almost woked into this chance forI 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? Isat on the ways on there. Well, I'll remember at the town was wasright, 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 realwhen 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 reallyis said, that just got that talent. Yeahs yes, a motorcycle, very, very fast, which is a very difficult thing to do in myhead, but they do it to destroy it early, which is, youknow, credit to them. Like Oh, yeah, so care as likes theWa St ul of think we're off was seeing because it's punic Qu especiallya 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. Sofree 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 bitsad way want to go. That's sad. That's the wrong way. When yougo to the TT and then the sack, as it usually in thehit, 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 disregardsexactly, but I look in there because, you know, they're always, alwayswelcoming, they always want to pitch take it and I think you knowit's I think that. Yeah, they delicate the creditors. Is that that'sa good thing from the media? I don't think so. Yeah, I'llgo to back over both free will and I am. I think it's calledChris per. He's trying his best to promote me as other last four orfive 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 becausebut yeah, we know. Hopefully there's a break. fouish of Sacre RasientTas. It's unique, it's different, but there's going to be a differentseason. Yes, I see. I say say how which are but wesolved recently. They're more when you Wu...

...and Dane Sale, wouldn't the recordhere outfit over seven ndred and eighty say say so. I think we alwaystrying to get ahead of the the care so the Games, because I thinkhe's one of them. One of them goes to an Alam says it inthe Super Competitive and way that every Bo body was the front between the topfive six front is gonna have to follow. So, yeah, a Basel's gotold and the fans, brothers, comrade, and also the crow brothers, customer on either. Yeah. But yeah, well, that would beinteresting, interesting, very interesting shift and very interesting to see if to doannounced that they are to winning next year, which allots to be in quite aquite early on yet on what it says. Well, when I readit on pom lamb first I thought this is this is going to the radarbit this. I think she underestimate how bigger change this cup day. I'mhappy. 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 someof the reasons behind in your red spit to try attempt over, I feelthe British Championship. So we've got road racing and it say Tom Maybe remembera few years back it was I think it was rickie Stevens, our Britishchampion. 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 youcould 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, theyshow, you'll see a bridge, Grand Prix whatever. What we're talking threeor four days, I don't know, but two weeks, two weeks andI'll see you go. If you go across earlier as well, like someof their early ferries, you three weeks. You know lot around as obviously he'sa three weeks. So it's a massive commitment and obviously enough s thatwith 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 abig commitment. Obviously, the publicity. Oh yeah, publicity is a massiveeverything. But with a real big teams it does balance out. I've letthat. Wouldn't do it and the won't commit that one now and the sponsorswill let them if they want, if to want the turn around selling matchin 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 wecome 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 thefirst times I was in two thousand and seventeen and it was it was abit. 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 upin us. Is they personally I don't like it, but it's not forme is yes, they say Alwa was before I had it, as wellas to do with fire eggs. Yeah, different things. But the thing that'sreally good, if me, is knocking all the school board down.Yes, yes, as as I could say, I did have write goodluck be and to see he's like. But I'm sure I could have repairedit. But well, that's to sit wait and see what they're going toput in it. I think it's rumors. So we our chronic and maybe amix of trying to trying to keep old style and anyway, I wantto wait and see what we have to put some of there because it looksright or where he's blank. Well,...

...we will be getting. We gettingup there tod and basically an end of an area you know for all theall the years. You know when you searching a bother things, you mustassociated with the TAT ISS tat a scopold was one thing of be interesting isthe regards that at the course for next year. It is the resurfacings.Every year, of course change you. So we've UN til years. Iwill walks and past be much smeow been going to be interested. I thinkI read what every top day narration and Peter Written and said I'll it's it'sgoing to take a bit to get get back into the swing of things.Let's go out with you feel practice notes.
