    Up for a thrilling ride?

    This is a 20-minute video, but I can almost guarantee that you will end up watching it all- an Isle of Man road race, riding in a Subaru WRX running up to 176 mph on ordinary highways. Really neat digital instrumentation superimposed, but not interfering with the ride. Watch the G meter and the driver's heart rate among other things.

    yeehaaaw...that was fun! This track is such a throw-back to the times when 'real men' raced...with the lack of run-off areas and safety barriers etc. Scary enough in a 4 wheeled vehicle let alone 2 wheeled varieties. No wonder so many riders have paid with their lives. The TT has been on my bucket list a long time, but B'ville speedweek is first in line. cheers, junior
