Cool video of the Ring.

I ran into this video on youtube and I think it gives a real good idea of what its like to ride the Nurburgring at race speeds..
Love the gyro camera too.

Holy Chit!

I was able to find that track on Google Earth and then follow along on the map as he rode it!!

That track is HUGE! How many times has he ridden that track to have it memorized so well?!

I've heard Guy Martin recount the TT mountain course on IOM. He can sit there and explain every turn, every straight, every time you upshift, downshift, late brake...
It's absolutely amazing how he knows every inch of that 30-some mile course, and how to ride it for ultimate maximum speed - all stored permanently in his memory.

Guy Martin's as cool as a mammoth cucumber. Everybody wants him to win the TT.
But there's also other very good riders competing, evidently.
