Irish Real Road Racing Motorcycle Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland
The teenagers of today have the power to determine the future careers of many Irish motorcycle road racers – hopefully they will be afforded the opportunity to do so wisely. Research of a not unrelated travesty, revealed also – a catalogue of missed opportunities to provide Irish motorcycle road racers an altogether safer environment to enjoy their chosen sport. Proposed International standards short circuit race tracks - extensive upgrades to existing unfit facilities - all shamefully scuppered by self-serving buffoons who cared nought about the lives of others – only recently has a minisule token gesture been made to assist the Bishopscourt circuit.
Held on all four of Ireland’s most famous circuits the highly regarded Irish Short Circuit Championship continues to assert itself as the greatest motorcycle road race series in – Ireland. So highly regarded is this championship it triggers an annual exodus of all self-respecting Irish motorcycle road race competitors – the majority of whom are – teenagers – winners and future winners of Elsewhere Championships. Presumably they prefer not to be used as cannon fodder for the benefit of the Dinosaurs - or as sacrificial lamb entertainment for any freeloading blood thirsty Neanderthal real road race fan. Other totally unacceptable problems though might also quite possibly be responsible for the aforementioned exodus - sectarianism, and sexism which have allegedly shamefully forced riders from motorcycle race paddocks in this still divided society of Ireland.
Leastways for those who have fully embraced it, social media has proven to be a truly awesome, most useful invention. For young people it has become an integral part of their lives - girls even more than boys, are using it each and every minute of every day of the year to communicate with millions of other likeminded people all over the world - fashion, music, motorcycle road racing and sex are all debated - intelligently.
Media savvy teenage girls, women, females – moi included she brazenly boasts, all know what we want, and for those interested in the world of motorcycle racing – it is civilised access without sexism, and/or sectarianism. Sadly though for Irish motorcycle racing, we are all rumoured to have been long ago pigeon holed by the Dinosaurs - as the undesirables – our views are disregarded therefore so to - is our disposable income.
Another website recently advised MotoGP to get its act together and capitalise on todays cashed up female market which for the Madrid Dinosaurs – now also ringmasters of WSBK – should be a relatively easy task, if not for the fact – television money is seemingly thus far easier acquired. Not so for the teams and riders though for whom sponsorship funding is proving to be more than difficult – impossible for some, and with plummeting spectator attendance figures, in the current recession, that downward trend is likely to continue.
Here in Ireland the problems are altogether more complex though – unlike the freeloading Neanderthals who see motorcycle road racing as a blood sport, the new breed of fans are a trifle more civilised. The upwardly mobile young women of today with disposable income are more knowledgeable than many of their male counterparts. A brief glance of the postings on some of the motorcycle racing message boards/forums reveals views which put these Neanderthal subscribers in a league of ignorance that borders on total insanity.
The Laverty Brothers, Jonathan Rea, Keith Farmer, Nicole McAleer and many, many more of our top flight road racers have a growing fan base of young people – male and female - which all concerned have thus far failed to capitalise upon. Unfortunately for the teams and riders, whilst some travel to the UK mainland events and further afield - mainly they are forced to follow the action on television and/or via the Internet – the circuit facilities at our Irish venues being no better – possibly worse - than those found at some Banana Republic shanty towns.
The time to bring new sponsors to the sport is now, fashion houses, cosmetic companies – how many teams and/or riders have approached retailers such as Primark, TopShop, Calvin Klein, ASOS, La Senza, Ann Summers, et al – have you? Yesterday was the time to think outside the box – today is the time to get out of the box and flaunt yourself before it is too late – take action now, write to any company whose target market is primarily today's trendsetting young women, and/or young men – make appointments, go convince these companies that motorcycle road racing is a professional sport – as are you - hopefully! Remember this though, to avoid shooting yourself in the foot – should mention be made of the allegedly ineptly incompetent amateur self-serving Dinosaurs – disassociate yourself from the discredited buffons.
So anyway, there were these three Dinosaurs, and the first one – he allegedly married a mail order bride from somewhere in Asia, after which he told her that everyday, she was to do the dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.
And the second Dinosaur, he allegedly married a mail order bride from somewhere in Eastern Europe, after which he gave his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. The first day he didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done and there was a huge dinner on the table.
Now the third Dinosaur, believe it or not, allegedly married an Irish girl, and he allegedly ordered his new wife to keep the house clean, the dishes washed, the lawn mowed, and hot meals on the table for him and his Dinosaur cronies when they came to visit. Now on the first day he didn't see anything at all, the second day he still didn't see anything but on the third day - some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, also his arm had begun to heal just enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher. Mind you, he still has much difficulty and pain each time he has to pee!!!!
