Post by Andy » 2 years ago

Saturday next week the 2018 Manx GP fortnight kicks off with its first practice and the newcomers speed controlled lap on the mountain course.

Here's an introductionary video for newcomers onboard with Johnny Barton and commentary by Milky Quayle. Thought @SB83 would like this as well ;)

Good thinking @Andy ;) I'll keep it bookmarked for training when I eventually buy the game.

Excellent. Not that I will get much chance to watch a lot of it as I will be heading to Spain in a few days time for just over a month (in transit for a chunk of the Manx, not to mention the last minute things that take priority)
