Motorsport Thread
« on: June 19, 2019, 01:55:28 PM »
Haven’t came across any motorsport threads on here so thought I’d start one up for any fans that there may be.. Motorbikes, F1 etc etc

Just back from the Moto GP at the weekend, after Lorenzo took out Dovizioso, Rossi and Viñales is the championship now Marquez’s already? Hard to see past it.

Would not be into the bikes much. WRC (and any type of rallying) and F1 would be my passion. Donegal Rally is on this weekend which is probably Ireland's biggest motorsport event annually.

Also talk of the WRC returning to Ireland next year instead of Rally UK.

I'd love to see the WRC back here. It was a great event last time around. Hard to believe it was 12 years ago. Unfortunately, for me anyway, the WRC is a shadow of its former self even from that time.

RIP Manus. A terrible tragedy. Another one gone too soon.

There was an F1 thread but it didn't get a whole lot of traction.

A lot of bad stuff seemed to happen at this Donegal Rally, with all the arrests too. What's going on? Any Donegal men on here?

I was about letterkenny the whole weekend working and the problem seemed to be that half the ones who go to the rally don’t actually go to the rally, they go to letterkenny in their modified cars and drive about doing laps. Gets worse at night then because the diffing starts on the quieter roads and then the drinking.

One of the things that spoils Donegal all year round is the peril of the roads. I know of no other place where there is the same fascination with death wish driving. I listened to a RTE radio documentary in which a number of these young fellas were interviewed as they sat reving their engines on the Main Street. They kept referencing the manliness of the behaviour.

The individual deaths are tragic especially when you see the impact on those left behind but culturally there is something at play that has to be stopped. Would be interested to hear the views of the young girls of Donegal. Do they find this d**khead behaviour attractive?
