McGuinness at McGuinness's

TT GREATS John McGuinness and Dave Molyneux have had corners named after them on the 37.73 mile Mountain Course.

The Isle of Man Government has redesigned and replaced the existing directional boards and mile markers around the 37¾ mile course. 'McGuinness's' is at 'Shoughlaigue' which is the fast run down from Handley's Corner before the top of Barregarrow. 'Molyneux's' corner is the fast right-hander at the end of Cronk-y-Voddy straight.

Other famous riders to have TT corners named after them include Giacomo Agostini, Geoff Duke, Jimmy Guthrie, Mike Hailwood and Joey Dunlop.

Isn't Molyneux the chap that knocked 7 shades out of his wife after finishing second? Not sure a corner should be named after him, especially as it happened during the actual TT, I think 2008 maybe. Apologies if it isn't him of course! McGuinness though, that goes without saying!

It's me, I'm back again. Firstly, No one is more deserving of this than McGuinness. Properly chuffed that the legend got his recognition.

Dave Molyneux however is a fucking reptile. Amazes me that in a sport of truly genuine people this is glossed over, and everyone still thinks he's a legend. He's not, he's a wife beating scumbag, and if I'm ever unfortunate enough to meet him, I'll tell him so.

'Shoughlaigue' Pronounced as, 'shotlegg'. McGuinness' favourite part of the course as stated in his many interviews. Between there and Barregarrow Crossroads is a slight hump which produces frightening wheelies at insane speeds.

McGuinness's - the answer to the quiz question: Which corner has three esses together.
