This is a press release from Dave at Dainese. Mint, eh? The TT goes from strength to strength.
Eight-time MotoGP world champion, Valentino Rossi, has confirmed today that he will make his first visit to the world-famous Isle of Man TT races in June this year with Dainese, who recently renewed their current partnership with the Isle of Man TT races as Official Safety Partner for the second successive year. The company’s founder and CEO Mr Lino Dainese will accompany Rossi and Italian legend Giacomo Agostini on this historic visit.
Allreet folks? What’s the latest out your way? A bit to report around here. Just in the Isle of Man at the mo, doing the TT press launch. Not really my scene, but the TT is where I go and enjoy my summers racing the most, so it’s a small price to pay. Another day off work I know, but we’re not here for a long time, we’re here for a good time. I learnt that saying off Dwyer Agnew, the legendary Irish road racer, good eh?
Now then, how’s it all going? Not much to comment from Brands really, except we’ve still got a bit of work to do on the 600 front. It’s better than last year’s bike, but it just needs fine tuning, chassis and engine-wise. So we can get a bit more track time with her, I’ll be at at Oulton in a couple of weeks and that will be the last time on track before the NW200. I’m riding my CBR1000 superbike at Scarborough this Sunday to give the bike her last run out before the NW. You wouldn’t reckon so though, it’s still in a million pieces in the workshop. But Rome wasn’t built in a day, was it?
Ta very much for the speed of light advice, every day’s a school day and all that. There is a big auction out our way at the end of the month. An old boy has pegged it and they are selling off all of his stuff, tractors, Morris Minors, classic cameras, lawnmowers and most importantly stationary engines. I’ve got my eye on an Anmanco open crank hit and miss engine. Am I sad?
