183 ! :twothumbs:
Regarding the promo clip above, you can see Conor Cummins' 2010 crash at the Verandah. Conor crashed over the end of the layby. It might worth knowing that at the start of the layby there is gras bank dropping down and a fence. Shortly before the fence, there is a small wooden cross planted in memory of Parlotti who crashed there in 1972, which effectively ended the TT's world championship status

I have to. Nothing like it, the flights are still cheap and first and foremost it looks like I found a permanent (TT & MGP) homestay 😉
Now, I only have to wait until the IOMTTMA releases its IMC course schedule for the TT 😁

Following that thread on Ken James' fatal accident in the identification request subforum and requests of how Cronk-ny-Mona looks today I got my hands on a postcard written in 1962, showing parts of the course back then.

For identification purposes perhaps.
