Visited Scarborough the other week, first time there, an awesome little track.

NW200 practice started today, keeping an eye on Ryan Farquhar who I sponsor through work!

A bad one for Farquhar yesterday, we've been receiving emails from McWilliams all day keeping us up to date.

I can see Ryan knocking it on the head again now.

I watched the live stream of the Supersport race on Thursday night, some really close racing as usual, Sealy now hold the record for most wins at the NW200.
Just watched the highlights program tonight. It looked a bad crash, hopefully Farquhar will be OK & make a full recovery.

Delighted to see Michael Dunlop take the Superbike win, looking forward to the Isle of Man.

As you say a real tragedy, especially to one so young, road racing is a spectacular sport, but unfortunately when things go wrong there can be a very high price to pay

Iom tt twitter feed reports that Michael Dunlop has gone over 133 and under 17 minutes from a standing start. I think it's going to be a good week for him and Hutchinson.

Spoiler Alert (I'll only post race results after the races have been shown on ITV4 :





Absolutely stunning performance from Dunlop today to take the win by 19 seconds from Hutchinson with McGuinnes in 3rd, Hichman also had a good race to take 4th.
And as said a new record from a standing start for Dunlop, 133.393mph in 16:58.42 He did a Lorenzo on lap 1 & blitzed them all, what a hero Roll on the Superstock & Superbike races, Dunlop recons the Superstock can also do a 133, & a 134 or 135 is possible on the Superbike.



Tragedy in the first Sidecar race though, RIP Dwight Beare

I think Hutchinson has taken over from Bobby Ball as my all-time hero. Absolute legend.

Indeed. A very inspirational story. Deserves all the success he gets.

Hutchinson also won Supersport Race 2 this week, Lintin won the Lightweight & Anstey won the TT Zero.

Hutchinson now has 14 TT wins followed by Dunlop with 13.

RIP Ian Bell & Andrew Soar
