I just can't get over the allure and the brush with near death experience. It comes to us all eventually, but to tweak the nose of the grim Reaper and get away with it. People find all sorts of ways of testing themselves and many brave fellows die in such pursuits of speed.
Jim Clark, Wolfgang von Trips, Peter Collins, Donald Campbell, Ayton Senna upon racing cars. Then there is this motorbike circuit like no other in the world. It brings out the knight in all across the world. They flock to this event and many die pitting their wits against this extreme speed demon.
There will always be people like this who test the boundaries and I am in awe of them and their bravery. I could never do it, yet I get excited watching the grand race.
