Triple World Sidecar Champion Tim Reeves is currently on the island doing some homework ahead of T.T. 2009.
This year, he made a stunning debut around the Mountain Course gaining a podium third place in his first race.
He went quicker in the second race, but there were fewer retirements amongst the leaders so Reeves and Farrance had to settle for sixth place.
Also over with Tim is potential newcomer to the sidecars next year - Ben Birchall.
Ben and his brother Tom finished third in the 2008 World Championship which included a maiden race victory in Croatia.
