I spoke to Josh at the NW200. He wasn't riding there but was helping out the Tyco team doing odd jobs and spending time with visitors in their hospitality area. Of the NW200 he said "I'd be out there like a shot if they'd give me a bike" and his enthusiasm was clearly genuine. However, I think he'd need to do some shorter Irish Road races first, to guage whether or not he really wanted to risk 200mph between brick walls with no run-off. And then decide whether he could sustain it for 226 miles (6 laps of 37.73 miles each)at a 130+mph average speed.

I am racing at the Isle of Man at the Manx Grand Prix this year, and hoping to do the TT next year.

If people don't like road racing then that's up to them, no one will force them to watch it.

But just because they don't like it, doesn't give them the right to say other people shouldn't be able to participate. The TT has been around far long than any of us have.

People talk about the dangers, well there are worse things in life than death. Like not living the life you do have to the full, in the first place.

This kid is dangerous on short circuits, like Sealey he shouldn't be allowed on road circuits like TT or UGP, tbh I wouldn't trust the guy on a 125 at Aberdare.
