John McGuinness vs the McLaren MP4-12C
TT legend John McGuinness races the Stig (plus McLaren) around the Top Gear track
Posted: 25 Sep 2012
McGuinness heads out for a few sighting laps, allowed on the basis that this is both McLaren's and Stig's home turf. Soon enough he's back, and it's immediately obvious how differently bikers and drivers view the world. McGuinness is talking about big potholes at Gambon, right where he wants to put his bike. The Stig twitches, and my laptop fires off a stream of slightly bitmapped text that simply reads ‘irrelevant input'. The Stig has noticed this pothole, but only as a cursory thing - he doesn't care, because the McLaren's tyres straddle either side of it.
