Road Racing News Podcast Series 4 - Episode 10 - Ice Cool


We don't usually do two podcasts in one week but given the varied, diverse, intriguing answers to the question What's the coolest machine to have raced around the Mountain Course?

We felt it was only right to create one specific podcast detailing this topic.

The Britten, rotary Norton's Honda's RC racing range all feature strongly as do some interesting choices, including from your's truly.

Listen away!

I want to welcome back to the road resting years podcast a dam steve rails to Rodriss used to court at UK. Look, we don't usually do kill podcast. You one weight, but given the question that I posed on social media platforms with the guards, people got us the coolest machines of the Rastro on the mountain course and there was so many replies, so many varied, so many diverse replies, that it was only right to cover this in just in one Pacific podcast. Now I've on some of the answers include us out advance. Will be the all the answers of them, even from the resistency where the races team owners, sponsors, marshals, fans. Tommy va says the ACW eight eight, Norton, the Rostry, not all, obviously owner the PEDIGREEDA are in alms likes Robert than not. Trevor Nation Paul in it unique sounding bike and obviously we all know as well. One Ninety two ten et, it says. Saves Lap. Kevin Funnigan says the Bitton v thousand...

...might gettings also say it's the Rocary Norton are in Marrie classy t ta shirt on some pretty racist it's the why is it our five hundred? See, for those of saying generation root remember them from the five hundred two. Sir Run pre days of the late s s also remember it first foremast. Now in the modern area we got Bruce and his exploits of Cossa TT, Garry Dickinson's it's the R S two, one, three vs on the most abouted by Bruce Hams t too SI from two thousand and sixteen, two thousand and seventeen. Maurice Teja say it's tied between the Britain and the JPs, not and rotary. Very Arrigan say it's too many to pick. Steve Linnstall's GTS, foulsand, these jsish, thick mesteran TT racy, Jim Hodson states.

Everyone will say something different for the different years. But from them all I must say the full factory on the avs, seven hundred and fifty unders that Steve is lock, cal froggerty enjoy Dunlop. That's my opinion. But this conversation could go on forever, like the factory on the six and they it goes on and on over the years, but not so much for factory, but not so many full factory rates of US years. J Bel Smith also states the Morris Brothers amdm single was pretty cool. So Sam and Aston want to stay at the Britain the thousand stunning bikes and an even better back story of a man in his shed taking on the establishment, Roger Weberly, thanks from Presto, I'll teta compared to oiver's mount so well. So it's the wise of that found the Yamaha no Gampley. One of feel racist from Canada... tackle an Irish read risk. Over the years say it's although they may be. May Have Been Far more exotic and unique machines. For me it will always be Honda v Fours, the IVF AC thirty and ask forty five. It probably has a lot to do with joy being my hero, which is what it is. I should add as all that my dad Steve Row and asked him at what he considers the coolest bactress from the mountain course. He said the AC fats which, Nick Jeffrey, is regarded as the best spike either wrist on the mountain course. Obvious, Nick. One thousand nine hundred and ninety three for the one winner, the one to step one of the a se range of unders. Is Oyster, Bailey or mark some pre surrupt et competitive? Says the SE foxy five under in the Britain. Thousand Stephen, I would glassy TT competitor. So it's very, very hard to answer. Every decade at the TT, especially premillennium, as a special sort...

...of cool standout, Chaney going to day as we're talking cold is the hundred and eight eight naughts and closely filled back the wise five hundred in hill state. It's the Britain for something different that raised are but also that motorsp about can took round. would be awesome see some fight that race. I see it's struck Asky forty five because for the facts are our comic carhos forest on states. I followed in locker on the suit five hundred up the mountain in two thousand and sixteen. That was extremely cold and I will never forget from Garrett states the under two fifty CC six down Cooper pressings, Darren go per top perrod racer. Thanks and pretty multiple makes from pretty putting finishing thanks some pretty winter in two thousand and seventeen sets was great. Listening to the RCV under Norton a pillier class behind Il vicer states the Britain. For me in...

Stamford States the wiser our five hundred bats or states the Britain and Kevin I go may feeling, but it's great characters. It's the under our sea. Thirty was lucky enough to risk Terry Austin's one in the two thousand Formula One and senior TT's finishing in buff races. Great Robertson Top. Three finished all over the mountain stay the NSF five hundred V twin but John the Ginnis road. Matt Middleton stated the Teas are three fifty. Am Har with a big tank settled it down just right and another two state the Britain is James Clark say it's the Britain very closely follow by the White Chishu seen his locks. Ninety two senior T to Win Norton. I might tool say it's the Britain question. And I think for me, if them was assing what I consider the coldest or rest around the mountain course it's tough because as your lots and states that you cut the conversation. Could you got through all different areas?...

It's a take in the banks. The classic I've always been a fan of MVA gusters. I remember pretty tight costick. That amazing sounds in five hundred fivends, three Fifty v August that our nerves be raised. So I would be inclined to say on the NBA Gusters, possibly from modern times, the VALMA v Augusta. I thought that was different. It was great to the MV maut packet t take, I think because all the mot tell whyki instill race in two thousand and ten was iconic. It was different and I remember spectating a Braille and I must said the noise from that was foul. I would have been from the thousands or the six hundreds. You're gone to. Even the patterns obviously got mentioned Norton. It's pretty stated. bally got the being. These got cowards act is. It's been a great area terms of cold tte bites, I think. Anyway. Don't what makes a really cold...

...rast like if something different, something something unique, but I was something a bit edgy way. It's pushing that technology to the next level. So if a NAP standpoint of lunder will be some but consider the electric rights. Like the newgoon of Kingston University lighting motorcycles, bikes, victory motorcycles as cold and also we've got to mention the sykasm me. The engineering in them is just unbelievable. Is Unbelievable. So I think if you, if I think, if I think on send out sender for what is the coolest change the Restaur on theoutain course would be Roth Bill has their MIS state from the late seventy to believe that at the the s you need engineering. So they're all a little towns world champion. And I think, for example, next year it's eat. We have the night under set asychis. That's going to be an...

...eight, seems if they're molding the over dance still with it an it's season kitty and powered outfit. As I say, there's a bit could go one and all about what you consider the coolest rights of rast around the mountain course. I'm so it's one everybody are talk chats about in pubs around or Paddos, a circuits, let's say. I hope you've enjoyed this discussion. There's mean something a little bit different and it's part of what we call the assid roads praternity series for the redress used podcast. So let's have to say is thanks listing and we'll the back next week with more dressing. Hils.
