That's a different kind of intransigence, the time has long passed for that, barring a sudden influx of investment!

This has yet to be dealt with, the incidents were unprecedented so we will have to see what the outcome will be.

If I was a betting man,  I would wager my old house on the new surface and profile at "Agos leap" being responsible for the 2 identical accidents. The location's name is a bit of a giveaway.

That does not mean I blame the DOI. That would be well out of order. They were doing a normal job of resurfacing a 30mph limit town road. i.e. plane off the surface and put a new surface down much the same as before.

They were not supervised to the extent that they would be if it was a proper race track. Maybe they should be if the TT really took safety seriously? That they were not, again backs up my thought that the TT pays lip service to safety.

At PROPER racing circuits they can make the surface smooth and without "Leaps"

Leaps have no place in a safe race track.

The TT course has a few places where the bikes leave the surface, Molly nearly killed a few years ago outside KM springs to mind, They should be removed if the ACU really want to reduce the risk.

HINT - They wont................

Have you ever heard of “the mountain” at Caldwell park?

Yes but if you loose it there you don't decapitate yourself and maybe your passenger hitting a garden brick wall less than 1 meter from the edge of the course.

That is the difference............................

But Caldwell is safe and has a leap far bigger than Ago’s?  You are talking nonsense and changing what you are saying as you go along

The throttle goes both ways, or we’ll end up straightening out the hairpin next!

The only people that say that are people that have never felt the adrenalin rush of proper competition, in any sport.

It is a lot slower and not surrounded by brick/ stone walls.

Is it like Everest? 

No.

Everest is a one off challenge that people can chose to do as a one off or not.  Much like the TT.

The mountain at Cadwell is something riders have to negotiate 40 plus times a year as part of their contractural obligation to race in BSB (or plenty of other series.

Massive difference

Who cares.  It’s a leap on a circuit that you would probably class as safe.  You said leaps had no place in a safe circuit and now you are backtracking.

Fact is you know nothing about bikes and probably didn’t know it existed until 10 minutes ago

You said your opinion would be changed in an innocent bystander was killed. Then you backtracked and said they would have to be a whole street block away.
