'I'm like a lot of riders in that I wear my heart on my sleeve and when you lose a couple of mates and it's pretty raw, then you do tend to criticise in frustration' - Jeremy McWilliams

This is very surprising from McWilliams. However it goes to show, 'once a racer, always a racer' - this despite his opposition to road racing. It maybe that he is considering competing but not willing to give 100% or take unnecessary chances.....just for the experience. Whatever, I hope it is a successful event and that Mc enjoys himself

Fair play jezza, and there is a better emphasis on safety than before. It'll be great for ulster fans to see their most recent grand Prix hero in action. Best of luck, keep 'er between the hedges!

Would love to see him do well, even win!

Some of the pure road racing "snobs" who look down their noses at a mere circuit racer like Jeremy would be forced to eat their words.

Happily however they are also few and far between and I think he'll be exceptional well received around the circuit.

i think the more top names tat get involved the better.it will attract more attention which will hopefully lead to more investment and a higher level of professionalism.the biggest danger on the roads will always be the dodgy engine tuners broken engines that cost the life of people like david jeffries.the riders know the risks of crashing,but cant do much about oil spills.and there is no need for it,how many of chris mehews engines have spilled fluids at the tt ?
hopefully the current upturn in popularity of road racing and the potential tt world series will bring with it an increased safety margin.
