Pikes Peak - Guy Martin
« on: August 05, 2019, 11:23:18 pm »
Build his bike, not running lekker, half a fix, won his class, good work Guy  :thumleft: :thumleft: :ricky:













Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

Guy Martin is probably one of the most likeable guys who has never won a TT senior.
A truck mechanic by trade, and a real petrol head.
He also owns a Volvo wagon with a 800hp, 6 cylinder turbo engine. This car was not built by himself though, this wagon was built by a guy who works for Koenigsegg.

The race leader was killed about 2 corners from the finish this year, the organisers have decided it is too dangerous.  :'(

So when a car racer dies next on Pikes Peak they will scrap the whole event? Bunch of woosies they should watch the TT for a change. :deal:

Agreed, they already screwed it up by tarring it all the way, because the environmentalists said it caused too much erosion and dust racing on the untarred bit.  :peepwall:

True, but the bunny huggers keep on driving V8's and V10's podding along at 55 mph or do they all drive Prius's? :biggrin:

GTV's and GT Juniors great cars no matter what anyone says about Alfa. The new Guilia just as good as an M3 from what I have heard so not sure why an Alfa badge should be "wank".
