Yeah, we've got some number that I'm getting on a bit of that one. That not real good at the old memory bolt. So the first question I wanted to as she was, do you know who was the inaugural Formula Tt Weld Championship was in one thousand nine hundred and seventy seven. You know, overall TAT when they're formula, tete, formula when it became the formula, one teat world championship, one thousand, Ne Hundred Seventy seven. Yeah, won't feel read, was it? Yes, it was. Feel read gets in there. So he's the Prince of speed. Yes, Princess rage yet. Yeah, I've taught the spot to feel read three or four times and I've had all different things about fore read. Yeah, every...

...time of sports in yeah, it's been some that it did. It did need promptsing. Some of the stories that it came about was right, really interesting. Yeah, and the second question is you'd have to give a full answer to this, but it's just one party answer to see you right. And who founded me organ it was Honda. It's but Honda. But Which? Which member of the hold the other the son? Yes, yeah, Chicaro Honda's summits here a Toshi Right, I believe in the early s you can finos in his dominant t t's are pass since twenty four too. This is one question I know you've asked me before in a quiz when we did that. We have sometimes quizies at Christmas. That would we don't and it said. What was bs a stand for Birmingham Small Hams? Yes, yeah, Beamingham small because they the benufactured guns. And did the end of the one into servin serve as Enfield? Yep, to the Enfield rifle. Going...

...off to question a bit anyway. Did this should be an easy question, but we'll see. It'll see if you go it. The current Sun under lap record holders. Is it Dane? No, it's Michael unlocked. Yeah, well, I knew it was close. So you've got free our force of fire. Router Hengler Oss road, say it's in. Which nation supports that again? Router Hengler or Vasel and OSS road sake? Is it?

The snows road sake. It's in should short of benched this year meeting running creation, the Krishevski meeting. Oh well, got that wrong. So that's three out of us. I've been in a whitewashing. Who...

...secured their first TT victory in two thousand force. It's solo rid. We should point out in two thousand and forty was in the production six hundred risk, two thousand and four. Yeah, sixteen years ago. Yeah, you remember watching it on those on men and Mots, I think. Is that race is still racing? I'd say semi retired. Summary tained Caipilly, all close and production six hundred. Yeah, and it's Semmar retained. That says. Yeah, that's the way it show. I think. What from the TT? You mean racing in general? Yeah, we've got to give me a no, I can't. You got it. Got Another is the English, Scottish, no Irish, non Irish, non Irish. It's right back...

...where. Yeah, get there. Come on, we have to have a few prompts. So let's be honest. Anyway, you got. You've got four hour six. So Fair, and this is an easy one. Italy's most recent TAT champion has been so the last resurround from it early to win its ETA. You know right, it's easy. Fifteen time world champion. I go, yeah, let's be only how can we didn't get that. I did think you understand that. I didn't understand the question. I think I'm right about this as well. How many scabber Gold Cup titles have been won by Barry Shane. Now that's quite difficult. that. Yeah, because...

...he did get second of quite a few sounds and they did win like the mcn championship, racism and things and those. Who's to think that that was a Gold Cup? So I think it's three four, shit. Oh, he has some fancy gird US listening, but are so closely. Yeah, because I always get mixed up because it hit. It wouldn't load the races. Its lats go cups out success. I remember it was eighty four. Yeah, it's F yeah, it was. It was without that was last year racing. I think quite an he was backward, returned to the Watsuki to. Yeah, because you get it. Came back then. A. Yeah, allow me, and he got yea, he got a top ten finish. I think you got five rates of found free. Wrong, right...

...question. Now, now you'll notice, if you've the site recently, wells of sports for road racing is believed to have riginated in which country in one thousand eight hundred and ninety four in Europe? And give you it was on the site. Reason did do a little like Lebut it let's say, friends. Yes, that was a guest family, because I knew that. Friends. Yeah, frands was Bob earlier with more racing, because that's where you get Grand Prix from me saying yes, you don't know, see it if I friends and write the found a question. This is if I'll be an easy one to win. End It for you because it's around London questions in there. I was which northwest two hundred winner was set to make his TT debut this year. Glenn are way. Yeah, good old Glen. So...

...you've got seven right and free wrong. Well, that's about sounds that reach seventeen percent. That's above average and even take percent. That's that is. That's a pass for it. That in exactly is yes, but sixty three, sixty three percent of it truthful is a pass for it. In an exam. That's your pass, right and yes. So next time with a podcast, you're going to post ten questions as well. It's a fan some really bad questions because you're the Gour or the other siege of Rudd race in that. Yeah, he says that, but you were also mentioned this way and thanks. So what are you going to buy? Roddish use make. There's been much of yeah, yeah, it's been. It's been a very busy last till two weeks. I'm it really yeah, mass massive thanks. Are Wrong and I've got a bamboos with the question this week, but I...

...thought I'd give everybody answer to the question from the previous podcast, which was who present? Is the only race in history to see? Sure pipe speaks for a TT victories. It's probed the bullet barber. Yeah, from here, rubs are right and obviously is out. Is In that real mental? A few races. All the others years like mine over. Yeah, the what the clival leather look like by Rischine? Now that one is mean. I was a sponsor. Let's sponsors. Robbed Lips. Yeah, because he raises the lay. Yes, I didn't know. Is this sponsor? I for it was rising. It's whose answer this is? Look like a look like Barry Sheen and see. Yeah. Well, so we went, I wronger to a road, races up some shake it races coming up. soone onto boxing dirt and farm old run down with the results and then, provisionally it looks as though silly, calm racing. I'll be scamper meetings. I'm racing its yeah, yeah, the moment provisionally at the moment. But if...

...that it gives me. If that's the case, if Lee's back, that means they'll be both racing against each other on their team's six yards. Last one else see this year. They was obviously the Gold Cup. On the death of it. It was. Yeah, nothing wrong with the deafer better, goodbye, goodbye. But but well, preps, really good machine and they did exceptionally well. But if he's on these feeds, on these on his teams, so God seemly going bike, we know, disrespects of death. A Bet. Yeah, could be interesting, be very interesting, and and it. But but on thever set on this very inowf a little bit. It just shows, just shows how much Lee's improved. It Oliver's mouth, because if you compare how many races Dean's done scaber compared to Ye, it's compared to Lee and even in times of race it's many skill lays on...

...it. But I think nearly twenty plus winds scab and Nanty F yeah, you know. Yeah, so, I mean they just got to show obviously he made his dred doing twenty. Yeah, just say you know, what a talent the man it were. In my as the rolled twelve the roll talents like I can't do what they do. I'd love to do what they do, but I can't do it. So you know you've got a took her off to all the people raced ear yeah, but Lee lead. That Lee's like neck is super good run. There any piment demon that Gol gold cool praise. See. Yeah, yeah, Bas could have interesting that next year. See if some other stands returning for the seventy five animation. Oh yeah, I would have thought so. I thought they'll be quite a few rather as turn up for that and looks quite looking forward to that anyway. It because I had really looking across the farming talks to going head next hopefully.

Yeah, you've got to think positive, or sort of positive and all the same. On the second put the folk Scutul hoaping up for next year terms of road race means. And in February does the inaugural bar jarring snashal Tourists Cup in Mexico. We should be very interesting. Let's cover meet based road race season next year at the moment starts in New Zealand.
