I am going to the UGP, and would like to know what the wristband entitles me to?
I know it gets me in the paddock, but cannot remember from when i went before if anything else.

Following their double win at Snetterton in the British championship on Sunday, Mansfield brothers Ben and Tom Birchall travelled directly to the Isle of Man where they took part in qualifying on Monday evening for the two sidecar races at the Southern 100 meeting and going on to take a second and third place in two thrilling races.
Starting the first race on Wednesday evening from the second row, the Mitchells of Mansfield supported brothers were third away but soon overtook John Holden and Andy Winkle to move up into second place.
The action was very close with just half a second separating Ben and Tom from race leaders Reeves/ Farrance with Holden/Winkle right in their wheel tracks. Pole sitters Dave Molyneux and Dan Sayle recovered from their bad start and joined the top three with all four outfits pulling away from the following pack.
As they approached Cross Fourways on lap four Moly made a brave move past the Birchalls to move into second place. Ben wasn't letting him get away and the pair exchanged places throughout the remainder of the lap with Reeves, Moly, Birchall and Holden passing the start line separated by just two seconds.
They all maintained their position into the fifth lap with the gap between first and fourth down to 1.3 seconds, but no sooner had they passed the start line the race was red flagged for an incident further downfield and a result was declared on positions at the end of lap four with Ben and Tom stepping onto the podium in third place.
Ben commented: "The conditions were really tricky out there as the track was dry in some parts and wet in others. We all chose a different tyre combination so one was better in some parts than the other three! It was certainly an exciting and entertaining race and that last lap would have been a hum dinger!
"We would like to pass on our best wishes to the two riders that were injured during the race and wish them a speedy recovery."
The second race on Thursday afternoon was run in perfect weather conditions and with the highly competitive field it was essential to get away to a good start. As the race began it was Reeves who headed the field with Ben and Tom in their wheel tracks. As they went past the start and finish to begin lap two the top four outfits of Reeves, Birchall, Molyneux and Holden were already pulling clear from the field with less than a second covering the four of them.
Ben and Tom took the lead as they started lap three with Moly following through, but he was to retire with a technical problem a few seconds later. This left Birchalls in the lead with Reeves and Holden right behind them. In their efforts to retain the race lead Ben and Tom broke the existing lap record only to lose it one lap later when Reeves went a fraction of a second faster and on lap six history was made when all three of the front runners broke the 100mph barrier.
On the penultimate lap they were into the back markers and Reeves snatched the lead on the run to Cross Fourways. Ben was unable to make it back to the front and they finished the race in second place.
Ben commented: "We set out to try to win and that's when lap records tumble. It was a great race but of course it is difficult to run at the front and not make a mistake. I knew Tim was there waiting and when we ran slightly wide he took the advantage. On that last lap the back markers unsettled me a little bit and I had a bit of a slide and he was alongside me. He wasn't going to give in and we both only just got round but it was good fun. Thanks a lot to the Southern 100 club and also our sponsors and friends, we really enjoyed it."
On their return from the Isle of Man Ben and Tom will head to Thruxton for the next round of the British championship over the weekend of July 22-24 where there are three races to contest. Currently the Birchalls top the 600 cup standings and they will be seeking more top results to extend their championship lead.

Skerries rider Andy Farrell is delighted to announce that he will ride for the rest of the Irish
Championship season and at the Manx Grand Prix, under the banner of Ollies Place in Skerries, onthe Supertwin 650 Kawasaki, and for B & W Hull on the 600 Honda. He will also ride a 125 Honda for Mago Racing at selected meetings.

Following a break for the TT, Andy took both bikes out at Kells and his preparation for the Manx Grand Prix is well under way. Andy has the honour of starting all his races at number 1 and he will ride in the Supertwin, Junior and Senior races.

Ollies Place in Skerries is one of the best known hostelries in North Dublin, and a favourite haunt for bike supporters. Ollie also sponsors a number of fundraising nights, with Andy holding his on Saturday 25th June. Ollie said, “I am delighted to be involved with Andy, I have been supporting him for a number of years and this year I am going all the way sponsoring the Supertwin.

The 600 that Andy will ride is an ex Keith Amor 600 Honda, that both Andy and Brian have totally rebuilt from the frame up. Andy rode for Brian and Wendy on the Supertwin at the Manx in 2015, and he was lying in second place at half way, when he was forced to retire.
Andy “I was approached by Brian and Wendy to ride the bike for them, and I am delighted to be part of the team. Having ridden for Brian and Wendy before, it was an offer that I couldn’t refuse.

I love riding both the twin and the 600, and the Honda will be suited to the tough TT Mountain course. I am also delighted to have Ollies Place as a main sponsor in the Supertwin, and Ollie has been involved with me for the start, and now we have taken it a step further, and we are looking forward to the Manx”

Andy is indebted to the people who help him out and would like to thank the
following,, Tommy and Colin Martin, John and Aileen Duggan, AV Transport, Johnny Farrelly, “Rubber”, Mike Kelly from the Isle of Man, B & W Racing, AXA Bikecare, Magic Slush, Ollie Grimes & Ollies Place, Dean Pearse, Round Tower Plant Hire,, Network 2000, Top1 Oil, Baz Fernandes, Maurice Creegan, Lockk 9, E&GManly Engineering, Crank Racing, and a happy50th Birthday to Crank Racing boss Mark Grimes.

Andy will he will be running his Annual Fundraising Night in Ollies Place on Saturday 25th June with tickets available at €10each. “I will have a live band, and there will be a raffle and. auction, and I look forward to seeing all my old friends on the night. I am looking forward to the Manx once more, and I hope to have a little more luck this year, smiled the Skerries rider. I would like to thank the guys and girls that help each racing weekend as without the help of all of these people & their businesses, racing here and in the Isle of Man just wouldn't be possible. I'm forever grateful

It was not the best of days for Market Rasen racer Phil Crowe when he was forced to retire from the Supersport race and then suffered machine damage on the last lap of the Superstock race although he did manage to bring the bike home in 38th position.
The four lap Supersport race was always going to be a problem for Crowe as because of bike problems he didn't get much practice in and was placed last away. This meant he had to try to get past the stragglers at the back of the field in order to get some fast laps in and move up the order on time. There are few safe passing places on the 37.73 mile course and this was bound to affect his lap times but he battled on to Glen Helen before encountering a problem with the fuel pump which caused him to retire.
Phil had a much better start position for the four lap Superstock race later in the day and began his campaign from 34th place. Phil was riding well and was up to 30th at Glen Helen. By the end of the lap he was in 28th place and posted a fast lap of 123.4mph.
But his success was short lived as he hit some wreckage from a crashed bike which left some fluid on his boot. He had to stop to check the bike and lost a lot of time being down to 40th at Ballaugh on lap two. Phil got his head down and powered the BMW away to try to make up the time and did make it up to 34th before encountering a problem with the yolks  and just nursed the bike round the last lap to finish in 38th place just missing out on a bronze replica.
He said: "you need some luck to get around this course and I didn't have any today. Everything was going mega and then it kicks back and kicks you in the teeth. On the second lap there was a big crash and I hit some wreckage with the side of my bike and foot, I took a look down to check for damage and my foot was covered in fluid so I had to stop to check everything was OK. The bike was ok so I cracked on trying to make up the time lost. As I crossed the line to start the last lap I hit Bray Hill faster than before and damaged the yolks on the bike and twisted them right out of line. I decided to roll it around the last lap and give the race up. I am gutted as looking at the time sheets I lost around two and a half minutes when I stopped and lost out on a potential top 20 result.
Phil will be back in action on Wednesday for the second four lap Supersport race at 10.45am.

Lady Luck deserted Louth racer Peter Hickman on Monday as he was forced to retire from both of his races at the Isle of Man TT Festival.
Having not had too much practice time on the Iron Maiden Trooper Kawasaki Supersport machine Hicky was optimistic of a good result in the four lap Supersport race. But after starting in fifth place he only got as far as Greeba on the first lap when he encountered a problem with a water leak. He stopped to make adjustments but by the time he had made the temporary repairs the leaders had passed him on their second lap. He managed to ride the bike around the course and back to the Grandstand when he reluctantly retired.
In the second race of the day Hicky was riding the GBmoto Kawasaki Superstock - spec bike and as he had progressed well during practice finishing well within the top 10.
As the four lap Superstock race got underway Hicky was up on time and into fifth place at Glen Helen on the first lap and by the time they got to the next checkpoint at Ballaugh he was into third place. He shot through the speed trap at Sulby recording a speed of 183.14mph but at the next checkpoint he was beginning to drop back and was seventh and then down to eighth at the end of the first lap.
It was obvious by his speed that the bike was suffering from a problem as by the time he made it back to the pits for refuelling at the end of lap two he was in 11th place. He did strike the bike up and begin to move down the pit lane but pulled in and parked up by the wall his race over.
A disappointed Peter Hickman said: "So far it's been a rubbish day. We had a water leak on the Supersport bike and then a puncture in the stock race on lap one which slowly got worse and forced me to retire at the end of lap 2."
Hicky will be back in action on Wednesday with the second four lap Supersport race at 10.45am and then the four lap Lightweight race at 1.45pm.
