'Josh was the one who made the decision, he was the one constantly mentioning the subject and when it came to negotiation time, he simply stated that he wanted this included in his agreement' - Philip Neill

Good on him, I've been worrying about the future of the TT for years but it keeps getting better,it was after DJ died that I wondered what would happen next but the influx of new riders has raised its calibre further with a lap difference measured in thousandth of seconds rather than the big gaps we used to have,I only wish hutchy had two good legs to complete the Lineup

A real racer. Big respect for Josh Brooks
I went to the TT for the first time this year( live in Iceland) and as spectator the wow factor is as big as it gets. I have been to Motogp,Wsbk and Formula 1 en nothing bets the craziness of seeing bikes go close to 200 mph through Bray Hill. If there is a motorsport event that I will be going to again and again it will be the TT.

Back in the fifties, when Gilera signed Geoff Duke and Reg Armstrong,one of the things insisted upon by the riders, was that they should ride in the IOM TT. Could it be that the good times are coming back?

Great for Josh but please give a thought to the guys at the bottom of the food chain that skrimp year in and out to race the IOM and have done for years are now struggling to get there entries accepted.

I'm fortunate enough to live in IOM, and to see the TT go from strength to strength with new riders coming each year is just fantastic. For those who have never been, the sight of these boys flat out is just incredible, like no other race, that's for sure.

Respect to Brookes for joining the family.

@ Mark.
Yes i agree with you,only on the roads will you see these bikes really stretch their legs.Good to see a lot of the BSB boys riding the roads as well as the tracks.The North West 200 or the Ulster GP you just gotta be there to appreciate the shear speed and skill of these guys.
Was over on the Man years ago to watch Joey Dunlop race...cracking event, booked to go back this year(a little shocked at the price)and looking forward to watching Brookes.I think McGuinness will have his hands full with the Dunlop bro,s on top class bikes...
never mind the rest of them...

Yes, it can be a bit pricey!I hope you get some good weather and the racing's top quality.

I agree, McGuinness will have his hands full this year, the Dunlop's are coming!

Smart move by Honda to get Michael on that bike though.
