The International Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) Race is a motorcycle racing event held on the Isle of Man that was for many years the most prestigious motorcycle race in the world. The event was part of the FIM Motorcycle Grand Prix World Championship during the period 1949–1976 before being transferred to the United Kingdom after safety concerns.
Today the Isle of Man TT fuelled by Monster Energy is the most demanding road race in World. Run on a 37 mile public road course in a time trial format. No other motorcycle race is held on such a challenging track. A Mountain Course with its seemingly never-ending series of bends, bumps, jumps, stone walls, manhole covers and telegraph poles, makes for an exciting race and very deadly as well. Average lap speeds of 130mph+ have been common over the last 10 years. In 2010 an electric version of the event called the Zero TT was add, showing electric motorcycles can compete at this level, averaging speeds of almost 120mph.
This month as we travel from the world’s longest closed course race track the 28km 187 turn Nürburgring in Germany to the world’s longest road course race track (that is closed off to public access during the event) on the Isle of Man.
