  3. Great post, JayteeJaytee. :] Looks and sounds unreal. It'd be an out-of-sight awesome experience to do a hot lap with a race-trained driver of the TT course.

  4. I kept looking at the speed readout of 150+, thinking how ridiculously fast that is on such a narrow road.

    Then I reminded myself it was MPH not KMH and felt like a eunuch compared to this driver.

  8. Interesting - the lap record for bikes is higher.

    Wonder what he could have done with some additional gears.
