Manx Grand Prix 2013
« on: August 30, 2013, 10:18:27 PM »
Just got back home, the weather was as good as any Manx GP I have ever been to, however it has changed and not for the better. This year the Island was full of 'Power Rangers' on Jap rockets blasting about and notably less on older machines. Tony East and his cronies have made it a much more commercial event and all prices seemed to have increased dramatically. I like the new races (Classic TT) but I can do without the commercialism. Did anyone else go? What did you think, I would be interested to know.

I heard rumours of another ferry company starting up, not sure how true it is or not. Like you say, the Steam Racket Co certainly know how to charge and I think others are learning fast... Braddan Bridge viewing... 3 per bike and 5 per person if I remember correctly, someone said Ginger hall was 15 and god knows what the Creg is charging these days. Not a lot I know but more than 100% increase on last year.
