No mention of the bad accident which was mentioned in the Belfast telegraph yesterday.
A bit slow with the news of a race which took place on saturday crash.
I know road racing is not as flash as GP and WSBK but lets face facts is the grass roots of the sport and I see still the fastest.
Keep up the good work lads, there are still a few of us old farts who still recon road racing is the most thrilling racing of all.
The last race I saw at the UGP Hailwood, Ago Reed and Redman were the champions.
Lapping at around 109 MPH.
I wonder what JLo would do today. :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :?
In 42 years since I saw my beloved UGP with all the tec electrics tyres ect 23MPH faster :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

A brilliant win for Bruce and a great result for Tas Suzuki. I live abroad now and don't get back to see the 'ulster' at dundrod as much as I would like. When you are reared as I was on 'pure road racing,' in N.Ireland, moto gp just doesn't have it for me.....not taking away from great talent in Rossi, Lorenzo etc.
When I see the TAS guys on the road circuits today, I am reminded of Hector Neil, Phils dad, laying the ground work of this very modern, ultra professional operation, from the back of a beat up, red transit van, at the back of the pits, on many a wet Saturday.
...lots of beer, lots of craic and a few wins. Those were the days my friend.
