Exactly.
Can't help but wonder how the kids in motogp would fare amongst these guys on a track like that.

My prediction: Not too good.

thanks Grinchy great find

The competiveness level (and rivaly) in Road Racing is really picking up to a peak. Deffenetly somthing to keep an eye on.

The NW was a good one last year. Alstair Seeley, who is seen trimming the hedges in the vid, put a few short circuit passes on some guys. It was good to watch but probably did'nt make him any friends on the roads.

also in the vid
@ 1:00, why Conner Cummins did'nt race the TT last year (he was on the blue/wht Tyco Suzuki that was submarined).
@2:55, M.Dunlops celabrates winning his first RR in the NW, days after his father died in practice for that race when engine seized...rip
link to that race.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/northernireland...008&race=250cc

These guys are somting else.


Another bit in the news, Ryan Farquhar calling it a carrear and says he's finished racing. A bit of a shame since he's been dominating the SuperTwins on that 650 twin Kawasaki. He really put together a good package. Pretty much had it on lock down, def the man to beat at the moment, but he has his reasons for leaving.

199 wins to Farquhar
I think the full text behind the decision to retire is worth posting,

Quote:
A devastated Ryan Farquhar has told the Belfast News Letter he will never race again following the tragic death of his uncle at the Manx Grand Prix on Wednesday.

Trevor Ferguson (48) from Castlecaulfield in Co Tyrone lost his life after he fell while competing on one of Farquhar's KMR Kawasaki machines in the Supertwin race in the Isle of Man.

One of Northern Ireland's most decorated road racers, Farquhar had earlier claimed his 10th Manx GP victory in the Senior Classic event, but a day that began with so much promise ended in the most heart-breaking circumstances.

Farquhar who pulled out of yesterday's Classic Superbike race at the Manx Grand Prix says he is no longer willing to take the inherent risks involved in road racing after witnessing the devastating effects of his uncle's fatal accident on Mr Ferguson's wife and three children.

Fighting back tears, Farquhar said: I'm finished with racing. I've been racing a long time and I've lost a lot of friends in that time, but it's different when it comes to your own doorstep.

What I have witnessed in the past 24 hours I've never seen before.

It's the people who are left behind who suffer the most. Trevor probably didn't know anything about the crash, but the people left behind are hit the hardest, said the 36-year-old.

His wife and girls are in pieces. I don't ever want Karen and my two girls to ever have to go through something like that.


This is a sport I love but I can't risk putting my family through something like that any more I have to think of them.

I don't even know if I'll be able to even run a team in the future, he added.

I need to sit down with Karen and talk it over and see where we go from here.

Dungannon competitor Nigel Moore went on to win the ill-fated race on a second of Farquhar's machines.

Farquhar the most successful rider ever in the history of Irish national road racing and a multiple winner at the Isle of Man TT, North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix said he wished I'd never offered the bike to Trevor.

I'm lost for words I wish I hadn't offered Trevor the bike.

I'm just absolutely gutted, he added.

I went up today [Thursday] to where the accident happened at The Nook and laid some flowers.

I keep thinking if I hadn't offered him the bike and he'd been on his own bike then maybe it wouldn't have happened, but life is all ifs and buts.

This is going to be a very tough time for Trevor's family but I'm going to be there for them.

He wasn't just my uncle, he was a really good friend.

I don't think it has even really sunk in yet to be honest.

Farquhar, from Killyman in Co Tyrone, expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the organisers of the Manx Grand Prix for their support in the wake of the tragedy.

I belive you're looking for Connor Cummins high speed exit from the senior in 2010. He went off at the Verarndah, a series of wide open right handers, the name in greek is the word for patio like the ones your'll see wraping around upper stories of appartments buildings. The series of turns looks like that too, wraping the mountain. He was pushing for the lead, and I think had taken it, just before this. Also earlier in the week had a race in hand and had mechanical issue. He's been knocking on that first tt win for some time, I think closer at times than Guy Martin has. Guy also had a big crash that year too, and lucky to survive it as well. That was the year Hutchingson swept all five races too, not to take away from that, but one mans loss (or two) is anothers gain. Just the way it goes.

You really need to get the movie TT 3d: Closer to the Edge.
