Is it true that the T.T. has been called off this year? I thought that the foot and mouth has settled right down? Has it affected other motor sport series in Britain to such a degree that there is basically nothing to do except sit in a pub and down a few Boddies??. Hope we don't get it in Oz, because the beer is no where near as good as Boddingtons!!!!

i get one weeks holiday a year & i think i'm lucky!

just jestin!

i get week 6 of the hols free & it coincides with the amatuer TT named the Manx GP. i did the world athletics championships two years ago at seville in spain. brilliant & i'd love to go to edmonton but it's in mid august so i'm knackered.

i've been lookig at a rally called the transdanubia which is for 6 days from the 25th of august but it was £2k all in & would have left me shattered(1,000 mile drive home!) .

it's from south germany up through the czeck rep & hungary & is meant to be a great starter. apparently if you're running short of fuel, you just pull off the course, ride into town & fill up!

i figured if i could enjoy this i would try the easiest african one which is the tunisian rally. hell, as i look forward to at least one mid-life crisis i could piss off down to the tip of africa or something.

but the expense! wow

only mitch could afford it!

so i guess it's back to the manx. no problems, i love the place & this year i expect the addition of a few thousand extra TT fans looking for their annual fix!

I would love to go to the Manx this year but I had already booked up another holiday b4 the F&M got the better of the TT. Quite a few are still going to the IOM even though there's no racing, not me though, I go firstly for the racing, secondly for the trailriding and moto-x events both of which will not be happening - see my other post under numberplate backgrounds.

Mitch, keep a note of my email and give me a shout if you're going next year, my ferry booking for this year has been transferred to next year's TT so I will be there. We'll hook up for a few slurps :) :D :D
