Steve Parish is a top rider in England and has done this race 8 times. He is now the reporter that covers the race on TV and says, that people will sit on the most dangerous turns right on the curb with a drink or cup of tea and wait to feel the biker go by a meter away from you at 180 mph. The Jack Daniels get splattered all over you from your own fear and then you hope you haven’t been injured in the process. The bikers are so close to you one can feel the wind, feel the heat of the bike as it goes by so a good opportunity for a sigh and a hug and maybe a roll around in the green for fun till the next racer goes by.
Allen Bell runs the race as the Island’s head of State or Chief Minister as he is called. Yes, believe it or not this unsafe event is run by the government. In this day and age there are so many places that say, we don’t want the liability , we don’t want the responsibility and frankly we don’t want people dying. How is this place able to embrace this race from a government?
