First race reduced to 5 laps (from 7)
Riders opting for full wets but it is reported as quickly drying. This is like the Pre-TT condition wise

Thanks for the updates Andy. :thumbsup:
Unfortunately I am having sound problems with my computer atm so listening to Manx radio is not working for me. :sorrow:
Edit: Doh I just realised I can use my tablet thingy to listen to Manx radio. Its hooked up to my wi-fi so should work no worries. :dunno: :fingers:

@Andy any updates on Tom Robinson's injury status / prognosis? I looked but can find nothing later than the initial reports. I was a bit concerned over his prospects on reading he was airlifted from the local hospital to the mainland. Hopefully his condition is stable / improving.

No news, I'm afraid mate.

But that he's been airlifted out means that he's stable enough to be transported at least.
