Hello Lowflyers! By way of introduction, I'm Mike Scott Area Rep for the beautiful Isle of Man. I drive a Caterham R500 and I am fortunate to live in a place where speed limits are a rarity rather than the norm. So nice to go out for a blat, be within the law and have fun!
With the TT circuit part of our playground, the ribbon of road from Ramsey to Douglas is 16 miles of derestricted 'must drive before you die' tarmac.
We meet on the 1st Tuesday of the month at the Crosby Hotel, not much history but it's in the middle of the Island, so accessible to all. There is a small band of half a dozen or so regulars and we don't exclude other seven esque cars. The local Porsche owners club also meets at the Crosby on the same day and so we have a laugh poking fun at each other and our machines. We have a good variety of cars represented on the Isle; Crossflow, Roadsport, Supersport, Minister Vauxhall, R400, a K series and Duratec R500 and even a R600!!
In addition to meeting at the pub once a month we meet Sunday mornings, weather permitting, for a blat usually at least one lap of the TT course. We also have the Jurby airfield circuit and usually manage 6 or more track days a year. Altogether for a small island the Isle of Man is a great place to own a 7.
If anyone is interested in coming to the Isle, do it, you won't be disappointed. Our regular event is the No Limits tour each May at the start of the TT festival fortnight. But if you'd like to come over at any other time drop us a mail, we love to see fellow 7'res from the UK.
Remember: 1st Tuesday Crosby Hotel. I can be contacted on 01608 239174 or 07754 084019
