I spent a couple of days on the Isle of Man recently, filming another one of our Pure Driving Experience vids with Dunlop.

I took a Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG, and more by luck than judgement we managed to persuade the powers that be on the island to close the fearsome mountain section of the TT course so that we could film on it to our hearts' content.

Which meant that I could drive the A45 pretty much as fast as I could, all day long, across one of the fastest, most dangerous sections of the world's fastest, most dangerous road racing course. So it was quite a day out, and has hopefully produced quite a good vid.

But on the journey home, and during the days that followed, I kept on wondering - might it be possible to drive a car faster than a motorbike around the 37.73 mile TT course?
