Tony and I met with MSVR and Triumph yesterday. The meeting went very well indeed.
Both MSVR and Triumph were clear that The TTC must be a cost effective, fair and high quality competition in the BSB paddock whose responsibility is to feed riders through to National Superstock or Supersport. It should provide a supported ride to the mostly highly placed riders in the series who are eligible for National Superstock and Supersport.
The plans put forward for The Triumph Village are acceptable to all. These are to include accomodation for all TTC bikes, accomodation for the T3 Racing Superstock Team, accomodation for the T3 Racing Supersport Team, tyre changing area, an area for major bike repairs, and area for hospitality and a commercial area for Triumph and other sponsors.
The series will be 9 rounds of a similar format to last year. However there is the possibility that one of the rounds will be extra special (need the ink to dry before I say it out loud).
All the rounds will be televised but we wait to see how many live and how many recorded.
At the last count (which was at the weekend) we had 36 applications for information for the TTC (to be clear an application isn't a place taken). This is extremely encouraging given that we haven't been able to formally launch the series yet. This will happen at The NEC Show. Applications seem to be from many different backgrounds. Some from last years paddock, some from the GP125 paddock, some from club stock classes, some from National Superstock paddock.
