TT fortnight burnt its way into the memory banks of locals and visitors alike in 2006. Firstly, to everyone's delight, the event was run in the best weather conditions for 40 years. Instead of fog or rain delaying races - melting tar was the culprit!
Race and lap records were decicated (see link on home page for details) and at the beer tent, cooler motors were stretched to the limit, keeping the slight chill that Bushy's drinkers like. (And of course freezing out the taste for girlie lager drinkers)
So next year we have the TT centenary. What can
we expect? With Brandish corner being remodelled, lap speeds should edge nearer to the incredible 130mph. Hotel space is at a premium, but there could be an addition to the island's visitor accommodation stock. There are vague suggestions about a parade lap by Valentino Rossi - certainly not confirmed anywhere, but should he appear, the question is what will Honda do? Oh, we can't wait.
We can't wait either for Bushy's 21st. We'll keep you informed on further developments.
