The event started with everyone signing up and getting kitted up in their racing gear. Overalls, helmets, gloves and hair nets on (a look which actually really suited Joel, a look he enjoyed so much he didn't take his off until we were back in the car), we were kitted up and ready to go. Trash talking began early as the lady doing the safety talk was regularly interrupted with people taking shots at their colleagues turned enemies (I stayed silent knowing full well that anything I said would ultimately come back to bite me when I was chugging along at the back).
The race started with the swing of a Manx flag and as everyone put their foot down the roaring of the engines filled the ears of everyone nearby, sounding like everybody in Jurby decided to start mowing their lawn at that very moment in time. At the end of the first 15 minute session the victory on the track belonged to Phil, although Liam had the fastest lap time, an expected result.
