Thanks, Don. I was just about to submit my registration form and application fee for next year's race. You just saved me some money.

During the TT1000 in May I averaged 57 minute laps, these guys do it in 19 or less and has to be seen close up to really appreciate the speeds, which can reach close to 200

I'm thinking they picked up that one guy with a stick and a spoon!!! :blink:

Way cool footage! Amazing that anyone can keep it all straight at those speeds!
