On the approach to York Corner
On the approach to York Corner
Screaming down the coast road at 140 miles per hour plus, this left hander can come as a shock to the average guy. It's fortunate that these guys aren't average and in less than six minutes some of these riders will be cruising on these public roads at speeds in excess to 200 mph!! That's the Northwest 200 you see and that explains why some 130,000 spectators turn up here on the North Antrim coast year after year to witness this spectacle.
