How close can you get?

click to see larger image Can you get really close to the racing?

Damn right you can - it can be frighteningly close on occasions! Try standing at Rhencullen, right by the pavement, when a bike approaches at 150mph+, on one wheel straight towards you!

Here's Shrek again (!!!!) showing just how close you can sit.
