It’s started with style this year with some excellent times already done. Coverage on ITV 4 @ 9pm every night.

However there has already been one fatality. RIP Dan Kneen, is not heard of him but the mere fact he raced this circuit gets him my respect.

I'm surprised you don't know the name from watching previous televised TT racing, Simon. A very well known and hard charging roads competitor (multiple MGP winner) former BSB Evo class rider and a Manx native. That's a very sad loss indeed, as are any such. RIP Dan.

Steve Mercer incident last night,COC has just issued new instructions if under full red flags, i cannot believe this was not already in place. in the past riders have congregated at points on the course, eg ballacrane, sulby bridge, ramsey etc. and ridden back to the pits in groups with travelling marshals controlling the group, apparently someone let Steve return to the pits against the course direction, he was in collision with a course car and is in a critical condition in Liverpool hospital, prayers are with you for a full recovery Steve

:eek: That’s mental! I can’t begin to imagine what has gone on there to let that happen. Let’s just hope that Steve pulls through and recovers fully.

Have agree. Only been there twice but have not seen anyone go against the flow ??.. I have seen the racers nip back through the back roads to get back to the paddock. This just goes against all common sense.

I think once definitely possible twice riders have returned against the flow of the circuit,under controlled conditions with travelling mashals front and back, when Dave Moly crashed and possibly though im not sure when David Jeffries Crashed, racers have been warned over the past for carrying mental speeds under waved yellows.

Obviously they were under full red conditions
