Anyone going to the racing?
on: April 22, 2022, 11:11:31 AM
With restrictions being lifted a bit now, does anyone have plans to go to the motorcycle racing this year?
Going to tour Ireland in a couple of weeks time and have picked up some grandstand seats for the NW200.

Not going to any race, but a bike holiday in the UK probably is going to happen.
Stop making sense

May go to Scotland in June to test this bike out properly.

If you don't want to go as far as Scotland for the NC500 there is an alternative called the South West 660. 

Details on a dedicated website here https://southwest660.com/

Going to the TT for race week, plus probably a couple of classic or club races at Cadwell, possibly 1 or 2 other events depending if and when I'm allowed out!!

That's great that you're coming up here. I know the 500 gets all the limelight, but there are other really good places to go apart from there. If anyone comes up to the NE feel free to message for a meet up or suggestions out this way. Forgot to say it is almost a given that you have to be partial to a drop of whisky cause there are plenty of distillerys on the way.
Back to the race watching day part, fancied the TT myself but there was not a gaurantee it was going to take place this year when we were in the planning stage. Looking forward to a week in ireland with biking friends capped off with the NW. Might even get a taste for the green spot!!!

I went to the NW200 in 98+99, great time over there, stayed in Portrush drank lots of beer in the pub by the harbour, giants causeway is right there too, enjoy your trip.

Finally got a chance to upload photos from recent Ireland trip and the nw200. What’s not to like about a white Honda with orange wheels and metzeler tyres :047:
Some great racing which can be seen on the iPlayer, but seeing in the flesh the skill displayed on a wet Thursday was superb.
