From Michael's point of view I can understand his attitude, because the guy has won TTs on 1000cc bikes and 600cc bikes. But to the other mere mortals the Supertwins class offers a route into the TT they wouldn't have on a big bike. A good Supertwin will set you back 5 grand, how much is a BMW or Fireblade in Superbike spec? At least double. I think road racing would have been better off going down the Minitwins route with a horsepower limit etc, rather than Supertwins, but it's still a reasonably cost effective class. Oli
