I took this shot the other morning of  the TT Grandstand on Glencrutchery Road in Douglas, what a job I had waiting for a gap in the traffic.

This image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5

During TT and MGP fortnight this Twin Squirrel Helicopter Registration No G-BPRI can be seen flying around the Isle of Man when the roads are closed for racing.

I captured these pictures the other day whilst the civilian emergency aircraft was on standby duties at one of the three heli-pads at Nobles Isle of Man Hospital.

Both images were taken on my compact Nikon S3000 digital camera and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Mark Higgins’ lap around the TT course in a Subaru rally car today (Monday 6/6/11) turned out to be a very convincing way of how to break Tony Pond’s four-wheel record for the TT Mountain course.

The Manxman completed a circuit at an average speed of 113.505 miles an hour, easily beating Pond’s 1990 effort, when he clocked 102.

I captured this picture of the Scooby returning up Pit Lane in the TT Grandstand after smashing the record.

* 9th June 2011 Footage of Marks second attempt of breaking the TT Course Lap record and in Marks own words this footage at the bottom of Bray Hill was “the biggest moment of his life” – Click Here for 1m 37s clip

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 48mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Spotted this Helicopter today which arrives on the Isle of Man prior to TT Week and is used for medical emergencies for the TT.

The helicopter is sat on the Vagabonds Rugby pitch adjacent to the TT Grandstand in Douglas.

Lets hope its not used for TT 2011.

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 22mm and cropped in Adobe CS5.
