    Isle of Wight update:


    Significant day for the Isle of Wight Road Races. Our application for a Motor Race Order has been submitted to the Isle of Wight Council along with the Permit issued by the ACU. Six months now until the event.

    Great to have Steve Plater back on the Island with us yesterday. It was a bit wet and windy to be looking at the Chale course, but we've been able to move along our planning for the paddock area at Atherfield. Thanks for that Steve and to the Wight Mouse Inn for providing a bit of shelter!

    MACAU Grand Prix chiefs have confirmed that this year’s motorcycle race will not go ahead.
    For the second year on the bounce, bikes will miss out as a packed programme of car racing is set to roll into the Far East next month.

    Sport Bureau Macao bosses today released the 2021 schedule of events, set to run from November 19-21, which includes six races for the four-wheelers and none for motorcycles.

    Had last year’s race gone ahead, this season would have marked the 55th running of the Motorcycle Grand Prix.

    It is believed that ongoing travel restrictions and quarantine requirements for the majority of invited riders would have cut the grid to just a handful of bikes.

    At the last running in 2019, it was Michael Rutter who took victory in a red-flagged and shortened race.

    The provisional race programme for 2021 includes: the SJM Formula 4 Macau Grand Prix, Sands China Macau GT Cup, Galaxy Entertainment Macau Guia Race, Melco Macau Touring Car Cup, MGM Greater Bay Area GT Cup and Wynn Porsche Carrera Cup Challenge.

    He comes from barely 20 miles or so from where I was born and grew up and even I can barely understand him at times.... :D

    :D @Gone Troppo @Mercury264 I've never struggled with accents, I guess it comes from having a cockney father and Scots mother :D
