    Spectator jailed at IOM

    Its that time of the year, sound like they dont fuck around with their penalties.


    "A spectator at the Isle of Man TT has been jailed after he entered the circuit.

    James Ford forced the delay of a session on Monday after failing to comply with marshals’ instructions, thereby obstructing the conduct of the race meeting.

    Marshals contacted the clerk of the course, who then spoke to the 67-year-old only to be told “I’m not moving. If you send police you’d better make sure they’re big lads,” as quoted by the BBC.

    The incident took place near Half Way House in Crosby, about four miles (6.4km) into the 37 mile (60km) course, a location where speeds are typically north of 200km/h.

    “To suddenly come on to a pedestrian walking along the road would have catastrophic outcomes, not only for the person illegally on closed roads and the rider, but for other spectators,” said Sgt Andrew Reed.

    Ford, from Yorkshire in the UK, was arrested before being sentenced to four weeks in jail.

    He was also slapped with an exclusion order, meaning he’ll be unable to return to the Isle of Man for five years"

    Didn't he initially claim he was clearing debris off the road? Fucking nutcase
    The correct number of bikes to own = N + 1, where N is the current number of bikes you own.

    I love that the authorities seem to be able to actually do something about it quickly.

    Here it would be subject to 6-12 month delays and various mental assessments and appeals etc etc etc

    (and of course lots and lots of lawyer fees)

    This is one of the reasons we no longer have round the houses racing I regularly seen groups of people and once a couple walking a dog crossing ocean dr during racing at the Bunbury beach circuit and a gs1000s could pull around 230 kmh on that section of the track.
    Mate stick to the facts not a fantasy.

    Yeah the IOM is like the polar opposite of Australia, adults are allowed to be adults, and the police crack down and don't fuck about on real issues.

    If you're running late to get to your viewing area and get pulled over at 200kph+ the cops will tell you to get a hurry on if you want to make it in time.
    Trying to think of a wise and sincere signature quote, but the only words that leap to mind are, "TITTY SPRINKLES"
