TT 2018 discussion, results and spoilers.

TT 2018 begins tomorrow and as per usual as the TT comes along the recent good weather fucks off and leaves us with a patchy looking practice week ahead of us with dodgy conditions due to run into race week according to the long range weather forecast.

I'll get all of this on week's delay. And only in the form of highlights. Count your blessings Brits.

Dunno about around you but its lovely here, maybe they should get it staged in Surrey, after all they love to give the junkies on pedal power our roads.

Yesterday was miserable but it's looking ok today, the forecast for the Isle of man isn't looking too bad now either, certainly not as bad as it was last year.

So long as race week is good, that's the main thing. But a gash practice week will probably mean no records going. I can't see a 134 without a dry practice.

Well the beauty with the TT is you can move the races about to the next day and even run them later on sometimes, I remember a couple of years ago they ran the Superstock race at 6:30 in the evening as it's still bright until about 9pm.

Practice is running now and Conor Cummins has already done a 125mph lap on a 600.

If Michael Dunlop carries on like this on this lap he's going to smash the Lightweight TT lap record.
