Want to watch Ian Lougher talk you round an on-board lap of Oliver's Mount? Of course you do...

In an age of risk assessments, political correctness and talk that 'you can have whatever colour you want, as long as it's no', it's genuinely refreshing still to see 'old school' venues like Oliver's Mount still exist and are active.

We don't need to tell you that the discipline of road racing, or in Oliver's Mount's case, short-road circuit racing, is going through a peculiar time. Indeed, while the Isle of Man TT has never been bigger or more popular, other events over the course of the year have run into difficulty, such as the Ulster GP, Southern 100 and the stillborn Diamond Races on the Isle of Wight.

Nevertheless, Oliver's Mount up in Scarborough stands apart by being a high-speed, fiddly short-ish circuit (2.41 miles to be exact) that still hosts plenty of races at a location overlooking the north-east city.


Given there are precious few two-wheels events now held in the north-east with the exit of Croft from the BSB calendar, Oliver's Mount is a thing to behold.

So if you're not familiar, you'd do well to enjoy this high-octane lap of the venue from an on-board camera affixed to Ian Lougher's Paton twin, complete with a talk-through from the man himself.

And if you are familiar, watch it anyway because it'll still blow your boots off...
