Seriously I would never race that race. I'd ride the course fast but never at competitive speeds. I think this statement sums it up, "with tire technology of today the margin of having a good lap and leaving in a pine box is exceedingly thin." No thank you.

To quailify for the IOM you have to run the Manx GP, held in Aug or Sept. To qualify for the Manx you have to run the "New comers", to run the "New Comers" you have to qualify through timed practice.
You have to finish the "New comers" at no more than 110% of the winner's time. (So 80% of race speed ain't gonna cut it).
A FZR400 or a Zx4RR would put you solidly at the back of the pack in the Seniors.

....but all is not lost yet. There are open track sessions at the IOM.

I'm trying to enter the Manx in 2009. Anyone got a 2003 or newer TZ125 for sale?
