I’d say it was more pants of brown than balls of steel.

As an ex side-car passenger I would say it’s more likely a combination of both.

Some boy racer threw his Fiesta over the edge and rolled it down a field this afternoon. Looks like the local chavs have been out in force on the one way system mostly leading to the road closures today. 

I drove back from Ramsey this afternoon and the weather was shite.

I was third car in a procession of maybe a dozen ( as it turned out when we got to the Creg,) and we were all going about 35 mph because we could only see about 4 white dashed lines ar a time due to the fog. 

I could not believe my eyes when a local, black hatchback passed everyone on the right hand side not having a clue what was in that lane and It only just got back into the single lane of cones in time.

Complete prick.

Unfortunately he got a green light at the Creg, before I got to speak to the Policeman at the lights.

No wonder the locals get a bad press when we are the focus of so many people.:(

I’d say he’s perhaps leaned his lesson. The car looked to be in a bit of a mess.

Don't think he's talking about the one that ended up on it's side?

Not sure the Fiesta I saw was a black hatchback.

But surely the road was one way so nobody would be oncoming on the right hand side

No shit Sherlock 

if there was no fog , it would have not have been an issue

That driver could see maybe 30 yards ahead and had no idea at all what was ahead of him.

Even when it’s one way we are asked to keep to the left.

I am however not surprised that it was you that posted that.

Maybe not TT related, but 4 police cars with sirens blazing speeding down Dukes Road just now. Day 1
