The difference between cars and bikes on the Isle of Man TT

This incredible near miss is what happened when rally driver Mark Higgins took a Subaru rally car around the Isle of Man TT course earlier in the week. Yes we know this is Motor Cycle News but we defy anyone to watch it without clenching their buttocks as it unfolds. Watch the bottom inset screen to see how much arm twirling...

As much as it was impressive to watch , I can't help thinking how close it was to carnage. The driver was a tad lucky to get away with it to be honest and he will probably be gratefull for the rest of his and his co-drivers lives.

best use for a scooby...

...take the roof off, gaffer tape up the doors, fill it with water, heat the water up then sit in it leering at your neighbours and shouting gusset at them. Another quality afternoon in south wales.

Tony Pond

I sat at the Creg in 1990 and watched Tony Pond on his 102 mph TT lap in a Rover Vitesse. Now that was something and the video of it can still be seen on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6noOET7Eik&feature=player_detailpage
