TT Attack...What's the point.

Unread post by Fritz » Sun Jun 05, 2016 12:25 am

I seem to re-call in the recent past people not showing the Mountain Course on the IOM the sort of respect it deserves with similar statements to the one being promoted by Subaru and their TT Attack and the DeD allowing such nonsence to take place.

In fact Mark Higgins said himself that his 2011 moment at the bottom of Bray Hill was 'The Biggest Moment of his life ' and for me was one he got away with , unlike Dave Holden's 360 spin in 1994.

TBH, I don't see the point of these speed attempts at bike races,,,,,,,I got to bikes meetings to see bikes and sidecars Not Bazza Boys in ponced up Subarus...


Fritz,,,,, :shock:

100% agree Fitz, it has bog all to do with bike racing, what happens when it goes pear shaped and takes out a hedge full of spectators?
I would be curious how well Paul Phillips and the risk assessment would stand up in coroners court.
