2013 will be remembered
as a stand-out year - the TT's up and coming next generation starring
Michael Dunlop, James Hillier and the Birchall brothers fought wheel to
wheel with the established "old" guard of Mcguinness, Anstey,
Donald and Molyneux.
Then there was Josh Brookes, the highest profile newcomer since Pat Hennen in 1977.
The laid back Australian British Superbike star ezceeded everone elses's expectations by finishing 10th in the Superbike race, even if the new fastest ever TT newcomer chooses never to return he'll be long remembered.
After a mixed early practice week of weather with a canceled Tuesday night session the action never really got started untill Thursday.
Clerk of the Course, Gary Thompson, played another masterstroke by bumping racing back by a day, making Saturdays traditional first race day a glorious 7 hour sun drenched practice session.
Riders AND photographers happy!
