    I don't think they want a crowd do they?

    But nice marketing for your little island.

    What's the climate? Nice and warm?

    Hi Eric,

    It's likely they don't want an audience. But i'm working on getting Thursday afternoon off to see what's happening.

    hehe, The Island doesn't really need any more marketing, but you can't get enough of a good thing, right?

    The climate is typically British, but we escape most of the bad weather that's given to the mainland. In the summer it's warm and wet at night. Winter is usually cold, wet or icey. Spring and Autumn tend to be 16-18 degrees celcius, either sunny or overcast with rain. So, overall it's an alright place to be climate wise.

    With a big thanks to rs6.com member "Steve" for reminding me.

    The recording that took place here is showing on tonight's Topgear, 8pm on BBC2.

    Thanks to Steve for the reminder..

    Was a good Top Gear. Man those are wonderfull roads!!

    As for the roadsters I agree with Jeremy that the Honda S2000
    is the best roadster on the market today. And the track was a lot wetter for the S2000 then it was for the other 2 !

    Once again some fabulous roads over there!

    greets,

    Steve

    I agree with you there, Steve. It was a good TopGear.

    It shouldn't be too long before someone has the CSL video/article online

    As for the roadsters? They all were hairdresser's cars! I wouldn't have any of them

    Thanks for the compliments on the roads. They are really good to drive on too.

    Watched this on TopGear and was very impressed. Jeremy Clarkson usually never has anything good to say about BMW, but actually praised the CSL :bigeyes:

    Anyway, does anyone know if/where this video is online yet?

    BTW, the IOM is awesome ... went to the TT in '98 and loads of fun

    It was the roads that made the CSL be liked by J.C, usually he's anti-BMW.

    Glad you enjoyed it here. :cool2:
