There’s Racing, and Then There’s Racing Rockets You Ride
I remember Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen. They had a minor hit with a cover version of Hot Rod Lincoln. I can still recite the lyrics:
Now the boys all thought I’d lost my sense,
them telephone poles looked like a picket fence.
They said “slow down, I see spots,”
the lines on the road just looked like dots.
Well, you couldn’t come up with a better description of this video of the Cookstown Road Races in County Tyrone in Northern Ireland.
