    An engine flown in by private jet! His uncle and dad used to take their bikes over from Ireland in a fishing boat… and it sank one year! How times have changed. Great stuff for Michael though, so glad he got to race after the dissapointment of the first supersport race. The coverage of the TT now is fabulous, and great for the riders and the event. Hope the riders are now getting the respect and money they deserve. The competition this year has been so close and thrilling.
