RR » Dunlop edges Martin in Southern 100 opener

Relentless Suzuki's Guy Martin might have looked on-course for victory in the Corlett's Trophies 600/1000cc around the 4.25-mile Billown Circuit - the 2011 Southern 100 opener - but Kawasaki rival Michael Dunlop had other ideas...

Dunlop initially said that he thought Martin had
"sh@t himself" when he came underneath him at 120mph, sliding toward the stone wall with the front tucked!

Real mans stuff this Rawdog, tune in to Manx Radio FM, the 250's & 650 twins are just about to kick off now!

These boys are the real stuff, mad and have balls to ride round there flat out, I do hope Martin get's a win he deserve's one.

If you have never been round the circuit, go and do it but early in the morning,when there is no coppers about.

For the interested few, Michael has just won the Southern 100. So with both superbike wins and the 600, along with Williams double in the 250's, the Dunlop boys have cleaned up.

I remember growing up and watching two youngsters on the circuits by the name of Ron and Phil Haslam. I just get this gut churning feeling of dread that the outcome may be similar if they don't calm down just a wee bit.

Klaffi won the sidecar race, I'm sure the guys at Crash will fill you in with a full report after they've wrung their hands for a while about the lack of an equal underpant allowance at Red Bull! javascript:insertTextCursor('comment',%20':)')
