An old TT ‘quick filler’ outside the Creg Ny Baa Hotel.

Not sure of the relevance of it at the Creg Ny Baa!?

Had a walk around the paddock area of the TT Grandstand this afternoon and these two bikes caught my eye.

The images were captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Just past Ballaugh Bridge on the TT Course and tucked in the hedge is this memorial to two quite famous people that will definitely be remembered in TT and MGP History.

The bottom plaque is dedicated to staunch TT and MGP Marshall Gwen Crellin who lived just passed Ballaugh Bridge on the TT Course, Gwen come rain, hail or shine would be outside her house before every TT and MGP practice or race.  Gwen passed away in 2007 aged 89 years and this plaque is dedicated to her.

* N.B The plaque was originally presented to Gwen by the MGP Supporters Club in 1997 and was fixed to the front of Gwens house, it is now displayed across the road from Gwens house as part of this memorial.

The top bronze plaque  is dedicated to Gary Dickinson 1934 to 1993, Gary was better known as “The Mighty Atom” during the TT, because of his slight stature Gary had to carry a lead block fastened to his motorbike frame under his left boot so he could reach the minimum racing weight.
