Default Re: Letter from the Isle of Man

you have to qualify for it ..club racers dont just get in.

you move up throught the different licences until you can move up from circuits to this and even then you have to work through the cc catergories...

there are full factory teams running in this with wsb and bsb racers so you can imagine how serious they take it..

if you really want to take your life in your hands..on mad sunday they open the circuit to everyone to race on ..all together ..only rule is that you all go the same direction....usually a few killed at that...

also the island has no speed limits except in the towns so you can do 70% of the course unrestricted at any time

A million thanks for not putting any spoilers in that. I'm watching it now.

Default This isn't good

It was a bad weekend to begin with. I got stuck in the free Haz Waste turn in line for 4 hrs, missing picking up the bike, engine work I didn't want to do, I let the dealer do the first valve job. Because of that I missed the ride with my brother. Not all is lost! I go to the local watering hole and concience them to put on the GP race. Let me say that I have all the respect in the world for Keven, but a commentaor he is not. But he was in good company, neither was the other gentlemen. Appearantly I've been spoiled by Dorna. The bar emptied by the second or third commercial break. Only an out of town couple remained. I am obviously at home and the last of the fence will be fixed. Even if they make changes for the next race it will be a hard sell. My disapointment is extreme. Were the producer and director employee's of NASCAR.

Yep I agree.. the Speed TV AMA crew (Freddie Spencer and Ralph Sheheen) are better. Dorna is great too but may be a little to hard core for American novice audiences..Perhaps its an experience thing and Kevin can get better. The other guy was completely lost i.e. it was obvious he knew little bout MotoGP and motorcycling in general. Kevin kept correcting him. The race was great though. Casey Stoner has got balls and isn't intimidated by Rossi. You get the sense that other riders are intimidated by Rossi

You only get so many chances in life. I was told we won't be watching that any more here. And this is in a locale with what may be the fastet 5/8 mile paved track in the nation with more dirt tracks that you can shake a stick at. People here like racing..... I think I'll go do yard work, how depressing is that.
