As far as I know, practice and races are being streamed live on BBC Sport NI. All the information on the link.

Great racing, even in really wet conditions, top speeds over 190mph. TV coverage by BBC Northern Ireland very good with the helicopter being able to follow the racers round the whole circuit. Pity the Super Twins race was cancelled due to a combination of the rain and bad light. Looking forward to the racings on Saturday. Going out to the garage now to fit slicks to the Bantam!

Aye Ron,
Very good coverage under trying conditions, as was the practise coverage. Shame about the twins race, but looking at the weather radar image it was never going to improve and standing water, track temperature and light levels weren't going to improve. As for "judging" what was the "right" call, that's for the Clerk of the Course, not an armchair enthusiast!

As for the "slicks on a Bantam"!  ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) You certainly like to make life "Interesting!"  ;)

Lets hope that everybody has some good, clean, safe racing on Saturday and enjoys the bunfight after.

Good health, Bill

That'll be the end of the K82's then! :o  :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ Not good publicity for Dunlop tyres!

We had similar problems with a Metzeler on the front of the Bros and have never bought them again.

Very pleased that all arrived home safe after a cracking meeting.

Good health, Bill

It's hard to keep the front wheel down in the first three gears.......thinking about it, there are only three gears!

Great days racing with no red flags and no injuries. The Super Twins got to run their race that was cancelled on the Thursday evening, so everyone happy. Looked to be a fair old crowd there as well. Bar staff will be run off their feet.

Empathising with the bar staff? Now there's a man who knows how to get served quickly!🍻
