Pre-TT Classic Popular Again 16 May 2006

Once again the Pre-TT Classic Road Races are proving popular with competitors, old and new.

No sooner had the Regulations and Entry Forms for 2006 been published on the club's website ( and sent through the post, the completed applications were arriving back at Race Secretary, George Peach's address.

The eighteenth running of the races first held in 1988 and held on the 4.25 mile Billown Course, this year on May 26th, 27th & 29th welcomes once again overall sponsor Blackford Financial Services.

As last year, the race organisers, Southern 100 Racing, will have to decide whether or not to instigate the Support Race for the 350/500cc classes, such is the volume of entries received to date.

Topping the list of entries received, is double victor last year, Chris Palmer. Other previous winners returning to the popular `Southside' venue are Mike Hose, Chris McGahan, Paul Coward, Terry Kermode, 'Bud' Jackson and the ever-youthful Ted Fenwick.

Many regulars are once again making their annual visit to test their skills around the Billown course, including Danny Pullen, Nick Penny, Rich Hawkins, Harold Bromiley, John Knowles, Ian Rycroft, Peter Wakefield, Les Trotter and Vic Haskell to name but a few.

Early entries in the ever-popular Sidecar Class include, Artie Oates with passenger Tim Dixon, Phillip Holt and Adam Charlesworth, Tony Smith and Barry Pepperell, Eddy Tombs and Bob Dowty and Belgian newcomers, Damien Perilleux and Nancy Detourney, along with French regulars Bernard Collinge and Fabrice Durantet.

Once again the Blackford Financial Services Pre-TT Classic Road Races are set for some close and exciting racing, with a final flurry of entries expected before the closing date.
