The TT2011 Sprints: The Ramsey Sprint and adjacent Concours included plenty of wheelies to entertain the spectators and some excellent display machinery. This was my first opportunity to attend the Jurby Sprint, unfortunately the weather dampened proceedings, nevertheless there were some interesting drag racing machines.

THE RAMSEY SPRINT: Once again the Sprint was a tremendous adjunct to the TT, including Sprint Racing along the foreshore and Vintage Motorcycle Displays. A wide variety of motorcycles were entered for the Sprint from Historic Drag Bikes to gleaming turbocharged Hayabusas.
