2016 Manx Classic

Post by TopCat »

Somewhat unexpectedly I was able to do the Manx Classic this year- I had been due to appear as a witness in some court case in UK! Case adjourned = I and Butch can play!

Anyway we weren't as successful as in prior years- being pipped by the Mustang which has a 363 CID motor and 580 bhp in a light early Mustang body
at least we took the team Prize

anyway I thought you would enjoy the early morning drive over the Mountain TT Course- in Butch in the wet
NB this is a derestricted road
NB2 we are going the opposite way to the TT bikes if it looks in reverse!
enjoy:

creg willeys- glen helen hillclimb orange tell tale rev light at the end means 7000 rpm in top which equates to around 145 mph- NB it stays on for longer - to reach 150 mph!
