Got this note from Polar Bear.


Gents,

I have no idea whatsoever if this will work .. but it sure is worth a try .. if you can make time .. brilliant.

James May (of TV Top Gear fame) does a lap of the IOM TT Mountain Course .. 37 + Miles .. on a Sidecar outfit .. made from 15.000 Meccano Toy Parts.

BBC2 TV show I think .. I found it on Piranha Bit Torrenting ;o)

Determination is the name of the game.

Fantastic .. or do I mean .. how crazy those English are Surprised)

The 6-episode "Toy Story" series was shown on BBC America but the show with the sidecar was not part of the series, it came later. Maybe they will show it eventually. (There is a DVD out of the series - this episode is NOT on the DVD).
