"Making all kinds of shapes" is the unknown darkhorse.

Seemed fitting at Argentina with MV giving the chassis a tweak at Argentina last corner.

Now it's his new favourite saying. and just plain annoying.

Blatant rip-off from Burnicle bingo,
Some of us Brits have been playing it in BSB for a couple of seasons now.
Funny how things from quality racing series up to probably the worst series from a racing point of view.

I used to love a game of Jim Watt bingo when he was commentating on the boxing

I loved this one whenever I heard it:

He's all over the back of him like a cheap suit!

Can't remember if that was Harris or not though....

I Ride: The original
"You couldn't separate them with a cigarette paper"

"Swapping paint"

"Contact patch the size of a credit card"

"Nadgery" and "getting all squirrelly" are overused but particular Huewen favourites - also including "mired back in tenth", "out onto the berm", "the Doctor's dangle".

Cox and Parrish were beyond doubt the worst paring in a commentary box of any sport I've ever watched. Cox thought he was Leigh Diffey and Parrish thought he was funny. Austin and I were watching old WSB footage and SP came out with...

"and that is precisely why you'll never see traction control on a motorcycle".

I used to get Speed Channel for the AMA and some of those guys were pretty cliché ridden.

Mention also goes to master of the maloprop and mixed metaphor maestro Jack Burnicle.

There was a spell where Parish couldn't commentate on a TT race without mentioning how the helicopter couldn't keep up without cutting corners.

I really enjoyed Parish as a commentator on the BBC for the GP. I actually enjoyed their who show. I would sometimes download the BBC coverage for all the extras. Sometimes for a missed race as well.

Don't know if you ever heard him on the IOM TT but Murray Walker was very good. It was when he left F1 that I stopped watching, there's nothing more dull at commentating than an ex racer. (Oh yes MW was a racer on motorbikes back at the end of the 40's into the 50's

Sure enough - Huewen yesterday - "berm", "squirrely", "nadgery", "9.6 for style", "mired" "The GOAT" etc etc.
