    This might work, but not for long it's BBC copyright as soon as they find out it'll be down

    Drew mate, just found out they live streamed it worldwide, so presumably BBC Nothern Ireland (BBC NI) will do the same for the Ulster GP in which case I'll post up the link

    If you can download the BBC on demand app it's on there, I've a feeling its geographical limited tho

    It was excellent racing with a few surprises

    Thanks John! I got to watch the first 10 min at lunch. The TT seems calm compared to this madness. lol 4 wide on 1 wheel over a cresting left hander..... just nuts! I see a lot of the usual suspects from the TT, Hutch, Dunlop, ole Amstey. Allister Seeley has won 17?! The start is crazy, not the 1 at a time TT start. I saw Guy Martin in the second wave, I thought Honda was not going to allow the bike to race.

    Guy Martin was in the 2nd wave on the 600, he didn't qualify for the first 20 places, which speaks volumes

    Alastair Seeley is the master at the NW, took the first Superstock race record and then did 2 more laps at the same speed

    Not very good news for Michael Dunlop tho, the Suzuki brakes failing

    Primrose Hill looks quite different in the race coverage compared to the onboard lap, not surprised John McGuiness hurt himself so badly, it's the 2nd corner, the sweeping left hander

    McGuiness said the throttle jammed open, Honda have inspected the bike and found nothing wrong ..er yeah sure

    They've also admitted JMs off at Castle Combe was a fault on the bike, bearing in mind this is using stock Honda electrics I sure wouldn't want to own a new Fireblade

    Honda have confirmed that Guy Martin will compete in the TT, they offered a ride to Cameron Donald, who wasn't interested ...

    Drew the racing gets better on the Saturday, there's some short circuit pushing and shoving like Moto 3, heart stopping moments particularly when Johnston gets pushed off

    Bruce Anstey was thrown off his 2017 Fireblade due to electrical problems, so that's the top Honda road racers both down due the new bikes electrics

    The only person who's got a podium (3rd) was O'Halloran in the BSB and he had that thing snaking like an old KH500
