The rider that passed away this year was a Japanese rider Yoshinari Matsu****a. Michael Dunlop's father passed away in 2008. Those guys are nuts! But I would like to add this event to the 'Bucket List' of events to check out before I croak.

$1300 for the flight and another $1400 for VIP ticket package for a week. $4,000 should cover a weeks worth of racing. 2016?
