Mid Antrim road race with MV F4

Some great coverage of some of the road racing i attend in Ireland, the guy on the MV is Martin Finnegan who sadly lost his life not long after when a brake problem developed on his Honda, anyway this is exciting stuff and you are only 3 feet from them at 180mph

WHEN I READ ABOUT THE PERILS OF DRINKING, I GAVE UP READING!!

A great video, but boy do those riders take a lot of risks. One error must almost certainly be fatal. And the bumps in the road aren't helping at all.
I know 'the Isle of Man' race is a tradition, but I think no tradition is worth risking your life like this.

I watched the other vids...some of them from the user who was posting those vids on youtube...I susbscribed to his channel...but EFFF!!! Effin unbelieveable. Anyone notice how awesome that MV sounded! Someone explain to me though what the difference between the Superstock and the Superbikes are....superstock is closer to stock and superbike is more kitted out as far as I understand but that it?

Superstock- standard engines, standard front forks with modified internals, rear shock can be replaced.
Superbike- WSB rules, basically anything goes.

Great action yep their balls must be huge.

With the greatest of respect they must leave their brains in the tool box before putting their helmet on.
