I was in front garden at bottom of flying kilo and foreign lad was hanging over the fence onto the road with a can of Guinness with his Clogs on
Scottish lass came over to him and fooked him out of it and told him get down
he did and no messing , somehow think if a bloke did it we would have had a fight

point is Marshals were across the road controlling public , traffic , race bikes etc doing a great job and couldnt see it, as we were in private residence as far as they were concerned
spectators need to pull people if there is a risk to public and rider safety .

I've bought a bottle from him the last couple of years too. Nice friendly guy , very sad. As for the organisation of the races I could not believe that they didn't get the action underway at 10 am on the dot especially when the weather was so good at the time and the forecast was for rain in the afternoon. I understand that the red flags and subsequent clean up take time , and that's part of road racing. What got me was the lack of direction/information when the rain came in , they weren't prepared to either call a wet race or cancel/postpone racing . I was up at pullets gate and wheelers and to be fair you could see that viability was very poor and there was no sign of it clearing.

I understand that its difficult with crashes/red flags and variable weather conditions but on Saturday there was an opportunity during the early part of the day particularly to get some racing done. As ever, the Ulster Grand Prix organisers were clueless and really struggled to deliver any worthwhile racing over 3 full days of closed roads. This is despite the fact that for this year they shed the national races which was supposed to free up more time to run the international classes. The organisation is so pathetic I am amazed that thousands of bike fans are still willing to hand over hard earned money to look at empty roads all day with virtually no spectator information coming from the organisers. Year after year there is excuse after excuse for the no shows and personally I am fed up with it. Rant over!!

Terrible news about Fabrice Miguet.
After Thursday I decided that with even the slightest hint of rain I would stay away and so missed Saturday.
I don't know why things went so slow on Thursday, and there may be very good reasons, but unless it can be improved I fear for the future of the race.
Rain was probably the secondary problem on Saturday, you can't lose two hours out of the day just like that. It might sound callous but in the old days accidents were quickly sorted and things moved on. Now it seems plod has to get himself involved, all to do I suppose with the lovely H&S climate we live in and the fear of being sued.
Having said all that the UGP is still by far the best event, how that circus up the coast ever achieved it's popularity is beyond me - hype over substance again.
Anyway here's to Noel and the team and next August.
