Its exactly how motor racing should be, risky. None of this pampered F1 shite we are now served up.

I agree f1 is pretty shit at the minute but the TT is madness, death every year. No way I'd want f1 returning to stuff like that.

and of course it won't, but for motor racing to be edge of the seat exciting it has to have the danger element, guess there still is risk but the way drivers are penalised for the slightest contact these days is ruining it. You need crashes in F1 and big ones, you just want them to get up and walk away though.

There was a big crash in the F1 this weekend, 27G they recorded in one of the cars on impact.

I watched TT for the first time the other day, even the lightweight bikes were going at insane speeds. Over manhole covers and shit. Mental.
