Hear Me Roar

NI Blogs Admin | 16:31 UK time, Tuesday, 30 March 2010

With the news that the NW200 in 2010 will be without the 250cc class, it got us thinking here at BBC NW200 HQ .....dangerous I know.....that along with the loss of the class, we also lose a distinctive engine noise too. One of the things that hit you when you wander around the paddock is the constant roar,  as mechanics test and re-test their machines.

So in way of celebration to the beautiful noises omitted by all these great machines and the commentators who describe the action on the road, here is our selection of NW200 sound bytes for your PC or mobile.
