But which is faster, then? There's only one way to find out: let the man himself have a go. Which is why I end up sat next to John McGuinness just before the 2011 TT as he removes his helmet and boots - he'll drive in his socks - and hunches himself in the driver's seat. Hunches, because he still has his leathers on, complete with some sort of aerodynamic torpedo along his spine. And John McGuinness, as it turns out - is pretty quick in a car. Most people would require a lap or three to get used to cars like these. McGuinness needs 20 yards.
