    Something to please Faffi: Mike the Bike takes his IoM Ducati out to play at Mallory park and thumps a bunch of young pups without bothering to stick a knee out.

    Amazing - thank you! The cool bit is how much later he is on the brakes and especially how much faster he corners than the competition.

    Some of the wobbles from the Kawasaki tipping into the fastish kink at the end of the straight were impressive too...

    My, that sound was evocative. I was taken right back. Top stuff!

    They all wobbled thru that right hander if they took a wide entry. Nice to hear Barry Ditchburn's name in 5th and 6th throughout the race.

    Thanks Graham. Pretty brave move (from Hailwood) to take the lead. I wouldn't have sat there waiting for the man to move over and take the fast line, same line he'd taken every lap. You got to be brave to do that.
