    Sorry, TT is a priority for me as well - pity there's not a longer time gap between them

    Anyone got an idea of the race timetable?

    Even the official website fails to give any times :(

    Are you asking about the NW200? I am here and I have no idea! I know when the roads are closed and that's it. It is Ireland though, so I guess it is to be expected. I have parked 200 yards from Metropole corner and as everybody says, the Irish people are brilliant.Boy, can they drink!
