If you can get past the irony that we are not covering the two-wheel races at the IoM TT this week, take a look at the four-wheeler taking a demonstration lap there under the control of a Subaru rally driver with an auto journalist in the passenger seat. At roughly 150 mph, the driver saves a massive slide and lock-to-lock steering angles, through the narrow streets with walls looming. Among other things, this gives you some idea of what the motorcycle riders face in terms of speed and danger. Make sure you watch the video twice and focus the second time around on the steering wheel in the hands of the driver.
