    I would think only the Senior. It's not a Superbike by FIM standards.

    Does anyone know if Velocity Channel will be covering the 2018 TT? I have a pub near me that may put it up on the big screen. I'll have to get up early and listen live on Manx Radio online for the days I can't make it to the pub.

    I liked Velocity's coverage last year, but I think I might buy the package to watch the races online this year.

    That would be good. I assume you can watch on your schedule.

    Do you have a link or provider name for the online package? (Hopefully it isn't Bein, since they won't sell me anything without a cable TV subscription to attach it to.)

    OK, it looks like I'm back to Manx Radio in the early morning, or my local pub in the late evening.

    I will say that I love the Manx Radio coverage. When I was there in 2015, we all brought little handheld radios and listened from all over the course. There is something about hearing all the local business commercials, warnings to local farmers to keep their livestock off the track, etc. that really takes me back.

    Yep, not too surprised. It is disappointing to try to follow great racing here...

    I'm told that an enterprising character might be able to use a firewall that communicates a phoney IP address to watch on computer or if you have cable TV ..

    I have enjoyed some of the action from previous NW200's on my computer from this source https://www.bbc.com/sport/live/northern-ireland/43801716

    I tried watching via the links provided above and had to VPN in to the UK in order to view the stream.
