News From the TT

Sorry that we have not been posting to the racing section but I have had to borrow a password and logon as I forgot to bring mine to the TT.

We started on a bad track as the Steam racket mucked up over 5000 bookings leaving us stranded in Heysham for 3 days, whilst there we washed the truck and a guy came from the office to charge us for the water!!!

Eventually we got here and started to set up camp with the Klaffii team 3 days late which made us rush about like lunatics. But in the end it all came good except the weather. One of the biggest problems is that you plan a strategy for the 3 bikes Martin is riding and then some one has a breakdown on the circuit in a car causing the road closiing to be delayed and out the window goes the plan.

The MV has performed faultlessly all week we have done 5 laps in total all standing start laps and are 4th fastest we tried a 2 lap run and ran out of fuel 5 Kms from the end on a lap which we think would have made us fastest 125 mph plus. That problem is now solved

Sunday we went to the MV Owners club rally at the Crosby pub but due to pressure of work we got there late and it was pouring with rain however we met some great people and the support here from everybody has been terific. Phil Read dropped in today to wish us well and we even enlisted the help of a Tamborini owner to scrub in 2 Dunlop tyres for tomorrows race. It is now 11.15 pm and we are finishchecking the bike and practicing pit stops the race is at 12 15 UK Time tomorrow and the forcast is great.

We have 3 guys from the factory with us Federico Toti whoose login I borrowed Giorgio Gattoni and Angelo Merlini They have been blown away by the TT and especially standing at the barrier as Martin passed 3 feet away at 175 mph.

The Island is bursting at the seams with people here to enjoy themselves
And we are looking forward bto a great race I hope all the work is rewarded.
Thanks again for all the support and good wishes

Barry Symmons and the Team in the TT

Thanks Barry for finding and spending time to feed us with a look inside the MV Team. In the meanwhile we know the result and congratulations to You, Martin and the entire Team. Best MV Agusta Result at the IOM since, what, the Sixties. Good luck for the other two events You are competing in.
