Back for another go at the island. Mixed weather conditions for the competitors over the fortnight, but we were lucky only losing 1 day out of our 7 day visit to rain with 5 days of racing/practice action to cover and over 14,000 images taken in the process. It was hectic but enjoyable. Huge respect to the competitors and officials who make it all possible and condolences to the families of those racers who sadly lost their lives during the event. Its a harsh reality of racing motorcycles on public roads that the slightest mistake by the rider or machine failure can result in loss of life.

Image A is Ian Hutchinson on his way to winning the Superstock race on Wednesday. Sadly Ian crashed during the Senior TT on Friday and sustained a broken femur. I wish him a speedy recovery.

Image B is Michael Dunlop on the Suzuki superbike on which he won the Senior TT on Friday.

A couple of cracking shots mate.
I think James Hillier needed to change his underwear after his slight wobble at Ballascary

Thanks John, yes seen James video. Saw a few incidents like that nearly every session. Guys on and beyond the limits at times. Not a place you want to drop it. Hillier did extremely well to hold on and stay on board.

A couple more of Michael Dunlop in action showing different areas of the 37 mile track. First one is Gorse Lea, a fast right hander, in evening sunlight. Not for the feint hearted. Dangerous corner that has claimed a few riders in the past.

Second one is Union Mills, Michael Dunlop leading the 2017 Supersport race leaping the ridge whilst banking over.

Superb images. Certainly shows how mad they are racing on public roads not dedicated race tracks. Very well captured.

Not sure they'd agree with the "mad" bit, but they certainly are different to us mere mortals. Average speed in excess of 133mph isn't bad over 37 miles of country roads and mountain sides, plus the odd town and village street along the way. Its an awesome spectacle to experience at really close quarters. Touching distance at times.

Great shots, these guys are crazy. Unfortunately this type of racing has a very high cost in lost lives.

Fantastic shots! This event is definitely on my ''to visit list''!! Is it easy to get there informations about the best spotting areas or are these places unshared secrets?
