Road Racing News Podcast Series 2 - Episode 6 - GP To Roads

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Given the major recent news that ex Moto GP racer Chris Burns is set to tackle the North West 200, TT Races for the first time in 2021 with Wilson Craig Racing, we decided it would be a good time to reflect on competitors who have made the switch from Grand Prix Racing to the roads.

Our latest podcast also features the provisional 2021 IRRC schedule, the latest on the Manx GP Top 6 series.

Another plug for our RRN merchandise, thanks again to everyone who has purchased Memories of The Mount and Who's Your Hero.

Plus of course there's the bamboozoler quiz question, which this week focuses on how many racers have lapped the Mountain Course at over the 130 mph lap mark.
