RR » Guy Martin excluded from Classic TT races


Rules are rules. A shame for the fans but Guy was only down for one race anyway, and there's plenty of other big names there this week. If the privateer fighting for 30th place wouldn't have been allowed to sign on then neither should Guy. It's a shame, but the organisers made the right call and Guy (and his fans) have no one to blame but Guy. He'll know for next year.

RR » TT Dream: Mission Accomplished!


Thanks for the comments, it's been a pleasure to write the blog. The future is unclear at this point in time. I had promised my fiancee that I would stop road racing once I had reached the TT, but when you have put everything into achieving your dream and you realise you have the potential to go even further, it is hard to just quit!

RR » TT Dream: Rollercoaster...


Cheers Whitehead. I would have loved to have done the NW200 but with such a short gap between the North West and the TT it was impossible to fit around work. Fingers crossed we'll have a good run up to the TT with the meetings in Ireland, a nice safe practice week and get that finishers medal. Anything more than that will be a bonus! Oli

F1 » Coulthard hits out at Albert Park protestors


As someone who was wholly against my government spending GBP9bn of taxpayers money on the Olympics, I can sympathise greatly with my friends in Melbourne who do not want the GP (although it's a positive bargain by comparison to London 2012). Although I love motorsport, it's not everyone's cup of tea. What it really comes down to is whether the actual cost of the GP is really covered by the additional boost the economy sees as a result of it. The difficulty is that is impossible to measure. Although I am certain the UK economy did not benefit to the tune of GBP9bn from the Olympics. Some politicians had a nice ego boost though. Good for them.

RR » Michael Dunlop critical of Supertwin class


From Michael's point of view I can understand his attitude, because the guy has won TTs on 1000cc bikes and 600cc bikes. But to the other mere mortals the Supertwins class offers a route into the TT they wouldn't have on a big bike. A good Supertwin will set you back 5 grand, how much is a BMW or Fireblade in Superbike spec? At least double. I think road racing would have been better off going down the Minitwins route with a horsepower limit etc, rather than Supertwins, but it's still a reasonably cost effective class. Oli
