They are protected behind the tyres
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chris, better than Armco like some circuits have.
Sure am glad there's a good use for the old tires, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Much better than Armco should the rider fall off, mind you cars are not raced on this circuit otherwisw there would be Armco.

I love the design of the bike, that little red thingy... great series, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Nice little bike isn't it, I wouldn't mind a go on that. Some more to come in a few weeks time.
I love the two spectators quietly criticising his technique grin
Brian Walbey: They are the track marshalls for that corner and no doubt hope they will not be required to deal with any incidents.

Those two look bored.
Brian Walbey: They are the track marshalls for that corner and no doubt hope they will not be required to deal with any incidents. Without volunteers like them the racing couldn't take place.

Great 'catch'. Do people bet on bike and car races, like they do on horse and dog races?
Brian Walbey: To my knowledge nobody has set up betting facilities for motorsport in general although there is a motorcycle series in Asia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auto_Race_(Japanese_sport)
i can see he is trying to present an aerodynamic front to all that wind resistance, Brian.
Brian Walbey: he is about to enter the main staight when he will tuck his head down behind the screen for better wind resistance.
