Latest post of the previous page:

Any chance there will be some live streams? Listen to Manx radio is a bit like going to the Night Watch in Amsterdam blindfolded.

Question: If it is streamed with live video, would you sit down and watch it?

Well, *COUGH*
This mornings emergency session had to be called off due to heavy rain around the Course but it sounds like it is looking good currently for the scheduled evening session in 1h 40mins time.

The schedule of tonights sessions as follows
ManxRadioTT wrote:18:00: All roads close

18:20: CTT Lightweight/ CTT Superbike/ MGP Senior/ MGP Junior/ Newcomers A session

19:15: CTT Senior/ CTT Junior MGP Lightweight & MGP Ultra Lightweight/ MGP Newcomer B session

21:00: All roads open around the Course

Practice will also take place tomorrow (Friday) afternoon and evening, with roads closing between 12:30 and 16:30, and 18:00 and 21:00.
As you can read, we'll have the second emergency date come into play tomorrow afternoon. Also do not miss the start of Manx Radio TT's Festival campaign tomorrow morning from 7.30am BST (6:30 UTC; 8:30am CEST; 2:30am EST)

To me, memories of TT 2017 come alive.
It looks like that we are going to race on Sunday (bad news for the Jurby Racing Festival) and another block of double qualifying on Saturday.

What stops you from sitting down and listening to the radio, then?

Shame for those over there and the competitors. Never fun hanging around waiting on the weather to clear when chances are spectators have taken time off work and riders are often camping in a Transit van with an awning. :sorrow:
