Of necessity an older photograph as the TT hasn't run for two years, courtesy of Covid.  The fortnight's racing starts tomorrow.

For those readers who don't know - and there must be a few - the Tourist Trophy course runs for nearly 38 miles over domestic and rural roads (closed for the race of course), including across the shoulder of the Isle of Man's only mountain.  The lap record is just over 16.5 minutes, at the moment, which means an average speed of just under 136mph - they often top 200mph.  Imagine that going past your house.

Loaghtan Books is not on the course, but not far off it.  We sometimes have to explain to printers why they can't deliver to us during TT fortnight.  Photographs such as the one above, help.
