Practice at Bray Hill
31st May for the
TT centenary 2007

If there is only one location you can make for watching the TT, this spot has to be on the shortlist. Having watched from a number of places in the past, nothing prepares you for the shock of the riders screaming past this point.

Not far from the start, the riders speed down Bray Hill in a normally 30mph residential road. As the bikes reach the bottom of the hill, the bikes bottom out and fairings often scrape the tarmac. Sometimes the bikes twitch violently at this point, just as the road narrows.

This is not for the faint hearted for spectating let alone for racing.

John McGuiness demonstrates his supreme confidence and control of his Honda as he is about to hit the bottom of Bray Hill.
