Watch Dean Harrison Have a Moment at the Southern 100 dean harrison southern 100 moment 635x423

Real road racing fans surely were aware of last week’s Southern 100, the Isle of Man’s other motorcycle racing event. For those not familiar, the Southern 100 takes place near the town of Castletown, on the 4.25 mile Billown Circuit, and features many names you would recognize from the Isle of Man TT.

Guy Martin claimed title this year to the 2014 Solo Class Champion distinction, while Conrad Harrison & Jason Crowe took the honors in the sidecar class. Unsurprisingly, Harrison’s son Dean made some news as well at the Southern 100 (fresh off his first race win at the Isle of Man TT).

Having a “moment” going through the Church Bends, on the return section back into Castletown, Harrison gives us a reminder on the physics that surround the limits of adhesion. Thankfully for the 25-year-old, a cool YouTube clip is the only result from this snapshot of time.

    As far as you may know. I doubt you do his laundry.

    @crshnbrn, lol man.

    The photographers thought twice after that about standing there.

    Looks like there will be more road racing in the UK now that restrictions have been lifted.

    @crshnbrn, Too funny.

    If you look at the bald spectator/cameraman in the tan shirt (with the big nose), you can actually see him grimace at the 7 second mark.

    Yep, he smelled dirty shorts going by!!!

  6. That road looks dangerous even when there is not a race going on…what is a garage doing that close to a corner?
