It’s been covered too well by better writers than I (see here and here), but I have to say that it is indeed a sad testament to the truth of the maxim of “no good deed goes unpunished” that the TTXGP will not be happening at the Isle of Man this year. That said, let me rub salt in the wound by passing along a video shared by Brian Wismann, the lead designer of the Brammo Enertia and the Brammo TTR race bike. It is footage (courtesy of TTXGP) of the Brammo bikes at last year’s event. Those were heady days and there was a shared sense of witnessing history among those of us who were fortunate enough to know where to look to find the latest race results. If we had been able to see footage like this, we would have been overwhelmed, no doubt.
