Hi Guys,

Last year I believe I was the first one armed Racer to be accepted to race at the Isle of Man Manx Grand Prix, after gaining my National roadrace licence and then qualifying for my Mountain Course licence. Unfortunately I failed to qualify after a week of mechanical failure, gutted doesn’t come close.
The Mountain circuit is the ultimate test of Man and Machine, I aim to concor the circuit this year, the 2013 MGP come back, a dream come true!

Dont miss tonights film on ITV4 Grand Prix Racer, filmed at last years Grand Prix, gives a great insight for both Newcomers planning to participate in the Manx Grand Prix and for the general public to see how much commitment riders give to the challenge of the Mountain Circuit. Enjoy!

Mitch, if you're into the TT... started Monday night at 8.30pm on ITV4, a new 9 part series starts. TT Legends and on the same channel tomorrow night at 8pm, a different show called Grand Prix Racer, which is all about the event itself. Set that tv planner!

Thanks for that Andy, Yes I love the the TT its the same circuit that I get to ride in the MGP. I've been meaning to catch the TT Legends docu on I-Player, Im a bit of a McGuinness fan :)

I'm in the Grand Prix Racer film, the full length version that go's to DVD gives me an intro and quick interview, also filmed me working on the bike lol.

Cheers

Here's a great pic from a friend of my'n John Coldwell, me racing at the Post TT Billown in June, was doing a great job until I ran out of fuel (doh!) on the last lap while in 11th position. Will be back in July for the Southern 100, then its the Manx GP :D
