Re: Just wow!

The Brits have some great road racing. Their government doesn't try to protect everyone from dangers that they know exist. Guy Martin is my personal favorite. I love his interviews, can't understand a word he says.

Re: Just wow!

That last segment, when they're turning down those skinny side streets that look like some of Bubba's cow paths......at those speeds?

Either that, or a complete lack of understanding of the concept of mortality....or more simply, a death wish. I doubt if any of the top-tier WSBK or Moto-GP racers would pull out all the stops if their courses were lined with stone walls, telephone poles and houses mere feet from the track's edge. Does look like something a rider should experience as a spectator at least once in their lifetime
