Now when your asked to appear any particular place you momentarily have a picture in your mind how the event will look? How wrong could I have been with Aberdare Park, my vision being a wooded type circuit in the middle of nowhere some part of South Wales.

An annual event I make sure not to book any work that clashes, great weekend with Woodhall being flooded with period vehicles, fancy dress, street traders, shows, exhibitions.

Snetterton 300 round-4 Ducati TriOpions, even though the guys haven’t raced for nine weeks, 40 riders lined up for free practice. Usual suspects at the front but one or two surprises and a few of the guys taking time to get on the pace with so much time off.

TT this year felt different from the start, co-commentator James Whitham not being there recovering from health issues and of course the weather not being very kind.
