Wayne Said: "On a course that long, you cannot possibly remember every corner, every braking point or every change in elevation or direction"

Err. No. He should listen to the riders commentaries - they know every inch of that course.

I live and race in the isle of man. I only do the short circuits out of choice, but virtually all the lads I race with are working towards the Manx GP (for amateurs) and ultimately the TT. They all desperately WANT to race the mountain course. Good luck to them. The TT is fantastic and WG should know better than to criticise people wanting an adenalin fix - after all he was one of the biggest nutters out there in the 80's!
