Fellow Short Track UK Thunderbiker Paul Baleta is racing his Aprilia Mille (above) and Suzuki SV650 (with its new Ohlins front end) at the Manx GP this week. For those who don't know, the Manx is the amateur TT, held on the same 37.73-mile Mountain Course.
Paul is one of those guys, like Anthony and Geoff Co-Built, Boastie and Travis 747, who race anything, anywhere at any opportunity.
