My mum and dad made the voyage to IoM every year in the 30s to see the races!

^ I read there was a fatality yesterday. A Scottish lad I think taking part in the race for the first time. :(

ITV4 are also showing the Irish Road Races and Southern100.
Th first two races, Cookstown and Tandragee, are still available to watch on their catch-up.
Even better than the TT!

Not a fan of Michael Dunlop so great to see Peter Hickman take the Senior TT - and break the lap record with 135.452 mph!
