I am a frequent visitor to the West Wight.

I understand and share people’s worries about setting up the Diamond Races on the Island but I also understand that many people like this sort of thing.

Here’s a thought — there are now some very seriously fast electric motorbikes out there, much less noise, pollution, etc. Just Google the Lightning LS218, as an example. There are even UK makes.

How about setting it up as a race of such machines? Lots of thrills but with fewer ‘issues’ (although still roads closed for some times etc.), plus a small tick for trying to make the event a bit greener than it could be, and a showcase for some rapidly developing technology.

I am sure better informed people can comment helpfully.
