    i think you have to have a death wish to road race, they do have a lot of balls though especially with the weather the way it was

    I'd sooner ride a bike among those guys than on the open road. Motorists lack of observation is leathal.

    I take your point though nerves of steel.
    The correct number of cars for any individual can be calculated using the formula n+1, where n is the number of cars already owned!!!!

    Passed 200mph on the straights nearly yearly. Weather wasn't with it this year on any of the practices or race day.

    I was up there on Saturday, first time at a road race...

    Been to loads of World Superbike and Moto GP races over the years, but these boys, balls of steel, no brains!

    They must be a unique breed of people to do that.. I know I couldn't.. I Loved it! I'll certainly be back. Really well organised and run as well. Was very Impressed.

    Have to agree about racing like this rather than being out on the road with the majority of inconsiderate motorists.. Racing was hard but very clean.
    Bathurst is a place where Holden and Ford fans go to have a massive fist fight and then in the interval, when the paramedics go in, sometimes a car race breaks out

    Never got down this year but watched most of it online and have to say the coverage from the BBC both online and the highlights after were brilliant, very well organised and some real good live action

    Ive 400 odd photos i must go through and post lol, good bit of racing this year between Seeley and Farquar in the super stock. Michael Dunlop just made it by split seconds into the 600 after he couldnt get a caliper back on.

    Good weekend with unfortunate accidents again!!!

    I never miss a NW200 - people know that bikes are quick but they don't realise how quick they are!! Seeing those boys coming along the University straight at close to 200 mph side by side is incredible.
    But, the weather does make or break the weekend and unfortunately this year was awful!!
