    Yeah, if only I could understand Gary Johnson when he says the name of the pipe maker :rofl I've seen him say it twice on the TV coverage, and I'll be damned if I can even guess at what he said.

    Some of the comments on Youtube allude to an Akra and a special IOMTT stamped Akra on the race day.

    Bray Hill casualties will make full recovery

    By Adrian Darbyshire
    Published on 10/06/2013 14:53

    All victims of the Bray Hill TT crash are expected to make a full recovery, the surgeon who operated on them told a press conference.

    Orthopaedic surgeon Ian Wright said that given the speed of the bike that crashed into the spectators, there could have been multiple injuries.

    Of eight casualties admitted to Noble’s Hospital after the accident in Friday’s senior TT race, four had serious limb injuries and of those, three went into theatre that day and one the following day.

    Three are in the process of being transferred to UK trauma centres for on-going specialist care while one is expected to be discharged in a few days.

    Mr Wright told reporters that the casualties suffered open fractures to the shin bones as Jonathan Howarth’s machine struck them. ‘It took out the lower half of their bodies,’ he said.

    But he confirmed that no one has lost a limb. He said he expected all would make a full recovery in terms of walking and returning to work. He added, however: ‘Whether they will be completely unimpaired it is too early to say.’

    Medical professionals gathered at the press conference said they were proud of how Noble’s staff and paramedics had responded to a challenging situation and the emergency plan for dealing with multiple admissions had worked as it should.

    For the full story read this week’s Manx Independent.

    - John was awesome :clap Fortunately Anstey got on the podium as well :norton

    It was my first time on the Isle and visiting the TT; absolutely a top-experience cause everybody seems to take part in the event: riders, spectators and organisation. I was convinced to become a voluntary marshall and that made it even more special for me. Must return there with my son as buddy; roadracing does not get better than this imho :clap:clap:clap

    IoM TT 2013 did not disappoint! Great action! Records threatened. Electric bikes getting better.

    It is sad to lose TT regular Yoshinari Matsushita and for the injured spectator. Racing is dangerous... as is spectating at racing events. No one should forget that in this time of rampant safety and caution.

    Living is dangerous.
