TT Dream: Livin’ on a prayer...

A lot of guys head to Spain or Portugal for testing these days, but I prefer my pre-season to have a little more glamour - so for me it's a trackday at Snetterton in early March!

The racing I've got planned is a lot more fun though. After a few short circuit meetings I'm heading to Ireland for the Cookstown and Tandragee road races.

They were my first real road races last year and I had an absolute blast, so I can't wait to do them again. Tandragee is particularly good fun, almost like a mini-TT. If anyone is coming along to them then do come and say hello.

With all this preparation I now just can't wait to get onto the bikes. But it's not too long to wait, I'll let you know how it goes!

Thanks for reading,

Oli

Just thought I'd mention this here in case there are people who haven't noticed - especially if they're outside the UK so don't see the listings but have satellite TV or know where and how to watch UK channels online - ITV4 are continuing the excellent tradition of road race broadcasts they've built up over recent years. They do great programmes leading up to and throughout the TT and broadcast a lot of racing from Ireland too. Starting in the last fortnight, in the 8-9pm slot they've been showing programmes on the Manx GP and a series called "TT Legends" which despite its name is actually about endurance racing as it features TT legends John McGuiness and Cameron Donald in a team with Simon Andrews. Well worth watching. If only ITV4 could get the MotoGP contract, (just so long as they did them same as when it was shown on C5 and ensured there were no ad breaks during races).
