Hope Cam Donald does well, he's a great chap.
Met him at goodwood FOS a few years back (after he'd won at IOM).

Was gutted the other year when he did his shoulder in, he was flying that year.

Jealous of anyone there.

Would kill to be able to fly out there and watch racing, drink beer and lie on the grass. Unfortunately us plebs have jobs, and ones that pay enough to do that!

I don't even think we'll see it live in South Africa... ..l., to crappy broadcasters...

@sumprat

Not many 2 strokes at the TT now my friend.
If you want those go to the Manx GP instead. Its as good a weeks racing and the island is a bit quieter without the nutters on the roads!!
