Norse invaders touch down on Mann

Swedes turn up for Bjorn again

A charter flight has once again brought a large Scandinavian contingent to the Isle of Man for the TT.

One hundred Swedish road racing enthusiasts touched down at Ronaldsway late yesterday morning (Thurs) after the weather had delayed their arrival.

They are fans of all genders and ages - but some have been coming since as early as 1970.

As well as being here to soak up the unique TT atmosphere, they'll be supporting the only rider from their country who is racing on the Mountain Course.

His name is Bjorn Gunnarson.
