Thumbs up Classic TT - Ducati 888

Hi Folks

Classic TT practice starts in 2 days... and I've spent the last few months building a 888 for the Formula 1 class. I think I will be one of three 888s in that class.

If you're interested in the build, regular posts on my blog:
SpeedTherapy



Updates on practice and the race as it happens too. Just two days before the old girl flies down Bray Hill! Can't wait!

Ciao

Paul

Not suprised with running 3 bikes at the Manx and with one being the bike above and the required prep maybe a lottery win is in order

GOOD LUCK for tomorrow

Classic TT Finish!

The Classic TT Formula 1 race was on Monday... we finished with a great result



Check the blog for write-up and more pics:

SpeedTherapy


Chris Pickett from Aus was also on a 888 in the race as a Newcomer - he finished 23rd. Mick Godfrey on the 888 Corsa (fast rider on a fast bike) got a DNF. Chris' son Alex was in the Newcomers A on a standard 848 today and did well to finish 8th after having to make a pit-stop on every lap (not enough fuel capacity to do 2 laps...).

3 out of 4 finishes... Ducati's record on the isle of Man has just improved!
