Thumbs up Isle of Man TT

I believe IOM festivities official starts May-30, but local US coverage of the races do not start airing until a few days later. The Velocity Channel begins showing some racing highlights on June-6 at 4:30pm.

Re: Isle of Man TT

Very cool. Thx for the heads up! Anyone know if Steve Kiener made the trip? Last fall, when we were talking at one of the Saturday Fuel meets, he sounded pretty set on going this year.

Re: Isle of Man TT

Just a heads up for DVR'ers.... I noticed last week, that my DVR was planning on recording IOMTT based on the last year listings of "Two Wheel Insanity: Isle of... blah blah", but the 2015 coverage is listed as simply "The Isle of Man TT".

The first "Two Wheel Insanity" listing at 3am is the 2014 Senior TT.
The first "The Isle of Man TT" listing at 4am is the 2013 Senior TT.

Current 2015 year coverage on Velocity, listed as "The Isle of Man TT", doesn't start until 11pm on Saturday, and 11pm on following days.

Re: Isle of Man TT

I particularly like the "air-time" at about the 1:48 mark. Sheesh.

Re: Isle of Man TT

Last night was 'Episode 2', but with the weather delay(s), was the first real coverage of racing. My DVR fu˘ked up though, and only got a partial recording, and what small amount is DID actually record, was of terrible quality. Episode 2 airs again today though, at 6pm (I think) with Episode 3 airing at 11pm.
