When fam a spot on the third and Wentz team slates with drinks come of falter. A friend stating Joe Fed alongside it was a cow jow and Iras returning each other from go at Shit. Also that road racings every Adan. He was a solid six. The UK is only representative. Matt Pays Ler opened his letters ires campaign in accompanies fashion place in a very credible seven put final top ten finishes when Michael Hoffman Lse racings Christian smits and Roman Clee, as somebody posted in Super Sport, rasting anglers and Devil Neverlands most famous road's course of arsal run.

The first race was also Vincent and I drove ourselves into a real frenzy with a weld of our earl. However, due to the high place my bike, he was a lot more fuel than we calculated after practice, which is why the feel warning light on my bike K on three laps before the end. I'm still able to maintain the lead up to the last lack, even though the engine had already started to stutter.

Sorry, before the finish line. It was over across the finish line with an empty tanks. That explains why, in the end, Vince Lombald took the victory by over, if very says right, over five seconds. But from it was a tight that between them and David. That's a another cracking sup bike, a counter angler. Well, on to the second soap spot encounter at Angler from last week.

...for ten to take road. Recently fishing adders from choose the onwards for ten to olds the further cabin, the oils northwest to unders office, under paddits nicely filling up with all the major teams, independent teams, private is how we funded Privates Triangle Course newcomers. And there's some of the interesting pieces of information maasing from the Paddock which in times of clude that under racings, rather as an air in jumpin his NBA will be using dunlop tires. That office undered. and the T T races. Now this is a major basically, you could say, as well for the mets left. I've the wax on the team pudding mets of the tires, of course under a synonymous with the dunlop tire brand, but with John Be Guinness a date s blaps into two thousand and five. It's at a John Beginnis is always run dunlop tires. So it's going to be an interesting your combination. I was barking broad script going the Gel we mets, all the rubber in pparisons to dunblop tires, mets ofll the tires. I've got bettery bricent times, but it asks me said. I feel that's to the most recent scenett from two thousand and nineteen. Three of the top four finishes were using Dunlop tires. Of It is race when the Dean Harrison was using mets all the rubber obviously since he switched dunlop tires. It's going to be interesting in its ONS. In one of those intriguing questions we're going to say the answer that the tire of altitude met Sal and done law. I think the mcreson atually runners as well. This year's northwest to under sir. It's going to be intriguing. Evan British, Jamie Coward he said to race standish shoot racing bats out. It's Yamaha. But the northwest to another side machine will run under the kats, racing powered by steps and banner is also racing. That graceles motorcycles prepared hour. We...

...are multi rout basically as motorcycles run. The British so quite chamship wing the Cam Jamahar teams. No question this thousand CCC Jam is going to be the highest quality highs. However, and I was also running, of course, to Katie's racing said six hundred and fifty can exactly. So looking like a positive meeting in prospect for Jeremy cowardys had a strong unked out to the season. The good times are ahead. Jimmy, I'm vicious and vicious rader getting better and better each season on the worlds around a company office study competition gets underwear, but there's not a time on Skach role and choose them Marney. But of course this could all shames. But the forecast paper. Everybody's checking the forecast. Free event. But it quite interesting. It's in Dreen to stay and he'll get the long time forecast. That the best weather at the moment books to be on the feature. A stay on the Saturday could all change, but it's looking like at the moment we could have it could be patching conditions and prospect the phase the evenings races and save for the qualifying sessions and choose deep and Thursday. Obviously, if whether isn't not to scratch competition. If if the competition has to be abandoned on the choosing Thursday, organizers do have the luxury of tennis running of fans at races on the Wednesday and the Friday, intentially the sap day rest. If the one forecast looks, plague could be moved back to Friday. Sorry, go forward Friday. Office Student Race Week, lobs, you don't want I want it to be a mad rested on the Saturday, but it is encouraging that the young housers do have this backup scenario I could plan. We should start, sounds like they says, wishing the organizers all the best. This year's northwest hundred three years...

...since its last run. It's brilliant just to be preview in the event. It's brilliant two years ago when bit back of all the craziness started in the world and all that was apping covid and lockdowns and body glare and called that it was so far away from our proof. Very want it. And now it's back. As I said at the time, remember like at the end of the tunnel. There you go on to the bamboozle and out. You noticing the recent podcast? Have an office. Two hundred twist or question. I court. It took his first. So quite northwest two hundred victory, in which year they answer? One thousand nine hundred and ninety seven. He's still competing now. Is How fifty years of Ay. So it's twenty five years ago he's first. So quite whin at the northwest hundred took feature a spoils, one of the all time. It's enough as spoting times the race winner and despite me now fifty years of age, considered the veteran, it's still ambitious. You still determined. I want this counting from contending for thirty finishes in the thousand. C Serio says he's never to be underestimated and, as I say, for one of the old time off US hundred greats. But I will podcast. Sorry, I want for the for the next podcast. Our bamboos with question you all to work on is this cow was Aki's first TT winner, whilst it's one for your red racing efficient Hodas to work out. The car was AKU team grain, amazing Brados, a great world to fight recording, which times with La you new Jonathan Ray. It's a great beast feed record and tat record that is intoing.

Who's going to bretlack records? What in this is mark with it? These are my predictions right now, in my opinion, but they are one's going to win Bove soap quate races. The soap stock races are going to be shared between Peter ripbn and Michael Unlock and the terms of the soap spot they Johnson, I think. Looking to my favorite, in my opinion favorite to win the six hundred verses in the soap twins, I think comes are going to be shared between Jamie Coward and drag MC Williams. So in the next podcast will find out if I was right. And it's always a bit fifty of the predictions, wis. I don't know what it's like for you user listening, sorry listens, but for me I'm always a bitty fifty when it comes to predictions of the competition so close. Now it's so competitive it's Fritz really just fine markings separate they could from the great and the best from the great. There's always keep positive, keeps now and keep going.
