You're kidding, right?

It's been going on for over a century.
The island has 80,000 residents.
They have marshals all over the course, and during the races the public roads of the race course are shut down.

If you ever look in the Racing forum, there is at least one member on here who is a marshal there.

I bet this guy is the first one at the staging area and the first one home from every dual sport rally.

Some cats tried doing that. They don't have tails anymore.

He'd need some lights and turn signals on his bike first.

That said, he's evidently a Green Beret, so I'm going to let you be the one to tell him that.

Sort of kidding but sort of serious. One of my friends t-boned a mexican gardener backing out of a driveway on a blind curve, so... hard to picture pulling a race like this off anywhere in So Cal thru residential and business areas. I will enjoy perusing your history link, thanks.

Love the no-tail Manx cat joke...

Only when it was Formula 1 !

When it went to IRL, Indy, IndyCar, or whatever they're calling it now....

Yes, unfortunately. I think I wrote about it in an RR posted elsewhere. Inmates' names will not be mentioned to protect the guilty and hairy.
