We only get edited highlights on telly of every second or third race - apparently because it's so boring that it can't attract any advertising sponsorship - but I did hear Guy's name mentioned in the last race (Monza) aired. If I recall rightly, Guy's day job is as a mechanic?
Cheers,
Dave.

My main source for observing British motorcycle road racing is Youtube. Can you recommend any other ? I have thought about paying for a proxy server.

Was not knocking him at all. I like him, he is crazy/hilarious/talented.

If I lived near Guy, I'd keep him at arm's length. He looks and sounds too erratic. I've had enough grief in my life already. He is obviously a nice guy and they always seem to be the first to go.
