IOm TT on Velocity TV

My Direct TV receiver captured the side car races at this year's TT on the Velocity Channel.

The announcer was speaking some sort of alien language with Guy Martin. They seemed to understand each other, but I'm quite sure no one residing in the Colonies could understand one word.

One other thing......what's all this bitchin about the weather on the IOM? Warm and sunny......

910R, S4RS Monster,'78 BMW R100S, Heritage Softail, Chrome V-Rod, Sportster 48, Kawasaki Concours 1400, '07 Ultra Classic with sidecar, yellow Vespa LX 150, a cool little Ruckus, and a very understanding wife........

Side car riders/hacks be crazy! Very limited ability to pass for obvious reasons, can and does impact the outcome of the race. Faster teams can be held up for minutes at a time prior to being able to pass a slower competitor.

It's English Randy...,just spoken very quickly with a few nods and smiles thrown in. No,whadamean,boy???!! Crack on!!

Oh, and it has to be 'warm and sunny' (well dry at any rate) right the 'whole way' round the 37 & 3/4 mile course..and sometimes it isn't.
