MCN editor Marc Potter is currently watching the Superbike race at the Isle of Man with Valentino Rossi and Giacomo Agostini... At Ago's leap.
An understandably excited Potter has just phoned in and said: "John McGuinness has just gone past and Valentino said 'Fack!' and was left speechless. He then turned and asked me how fast that was.
"When I said 180mph, he and Ago had a chat to work out what that was in kmh. Then there was a sharp intake of breath. Valentino was genuinely stunned."
Meanwhile John McGuinness is still leading the race itself, with Plater second, Martin third.
