I was lucky enough to be able to have a couple of minutes chat with Mark Webber and his father in the holding paddock prior to the start of the race. I asked what mark thought of the speed and his exact words to me were.

It scares the f**king s**t out of me mate.

I don't think the TT guys deserve any respect, at least the ones who have a wife and kids. Those guys have a responsibility to not race.

This is just egotistical BS from Mark Webber.

Whats crazy is the the Isle isn't even close to the most dangerous of the real roads courses, just the longest and most popular. Still love it though!
But big props to Webber for recognizing the talent and balls it takes to do it! It always amazes me more people don't fallow our beloved sport.

and what about all the women who do risky things like Horse riding. especially when they have a husband and children to cook and clean for.
How dare they leave the kitchen. Damned irresponsibility if you ask me.
