Wave Road Racing 2011 : Isle Of Man TT, NW200, UGP Etc.

I thought it's time to start a Road Racing thread

NW200 races on Saturday Relentless Energy Drink International 2011 North West 200 I'd almost forgotten

TT starts on 30th May Welcome to iomtt.com - The official Isle of Man TT website





Also as there is/will be threads for WSB / MotoGP etc. please only post results or discussions in the appropriate threads so people can read certain threads without seeing spoilers for other classes they may not yet have viewed

Live Preview BBC1 NI 10:35pm Friday

Race highlights Sunday 10:25pm & Monday night at 10:35pm



Not sure if there is live coverage on the Red Button on race day, there will probably be more details in the preview show.

Good shout David, im for the North West this weekend, have been in Ireland all week and practice has not been nice with the wind and the rain and Stuarts accident was not the start needed. Superstar Guy Martin is upto speed but its early days yet.

PS: If its not on the red button it will be live feed online, BBC coverage.

Poor poor Stuart Easton though.. After the incident the other week where he nearly got a bike on his head.. I thought his luck was good..

Wish him all the best for a speedy recovery.

I think he will be missing most of the season by the sounds of his injuries.

It really annoys me that you can't record it but have to watch it live still at least it's an option
I probably won't bother watching the webfeed of the rest of the races though, easier to wait for the highlights programs and avoid this lounge until Monday night to avoid the results

Seeley was magic on the brakes........

Great helicopter shots to show the slipstreaming.....he was having a tough time keeping up towards the end......only downside is you can't hear the bikes........
