Does anyone know what time the races start at , the schedule on the website front page just says what races are on but not what time.

Trying to figure out how late I can leave it to leave.

Damn shame no Hutchy.

Irwin and Seeley were being chased by Noel Johnson????, Clerk of the course to see if they would do it? , but never heard anymore about it. Irwin injured anyways so no point with him.
But imagine if Irwin and Seeley did it, after what we seen at NW200.
Fiver on Hickman.

Dundrod 150 tomorrow.

Heading up for the first time on Saturday.
Would it be wishful thinking to try get the following spots in on the day? Trying to fit it all in!
1. Deers Leap for the superstocks in the morning
2. Dawson's Bend
3. Start/finish
4. Flying Kilo for the superbikes

Yes all possible but walking shoes would help as opposed to biking boots.

Cheers, heading up in the cage so was thinking of driving from Deers Leap to the pits. Or is it better to park and walk between the spots?

Get there early
Have a spin round the circuit to see the prohibited areas
Park yer bike inside the circuit, or bring a push bike. It's a bit of a trek to walk between the hairpin to deers leap.
Joey's is also worth a look. Very fast with good viewing Anstey slip streamed between 2 bikes

Also the bends between hairpin and start finish is a good spot

Weather is supposed to be good for Saturday

Kneen in great form yes.
The growing interest in BSB boys doing the roads is bringing the speeds they ride the roads at to a whole new level. Those BSB boys ride the roads differently. Look at Irwin and Seeley at NW200. Christian Iddon showed an interest in The Ulster??? imagine him on the roads. Hickman doing BSB at highest level and roads the same. What a talent. Surely he is only going to get better at both. He may have to decide one day, BSB or the roads if a bigger BSB team signs him. The new Rutter he is.
