Onboard at the Macau GP

Strap yourself onto Horst Saiger's ZX-10R as he lines up on the grid for the Macau GP

Isn't technology wonderful? Thanks to lots of clever boffins and one amazingly talented rider, you can see what it's like to race around the Macau GP, all in 720p.

The camera is mounted on Horst Saiger's Saiger-Racing.com ZX-10R.

Only at the end of the video when you see the riders heading down pitlane are you reminded how much effort is put into a race like that, from the tiny things like race entry, to getting the gearing right, to pulling all off come race day. Let's not forget the talent you need in the first place. It's a herculean effort.

Turn your sound up and enjoy: it's a great race.

Good grief! Talk about no margin for error. Those track-side barriers are tall, immobile and constant. Respect.

There is a very fine line between genius and madness - not sure where this falls!

Jesus H Christ. I was looking for the flag. Didn't even see it. That is just incredible.

OMG that’s phenomenal video I was going to watch it as I ate lunch, but my sandwich never got close to my mouth.

Now I know why I’ll never be a racer at the Macau GP
