Not being a racing fan, I thought this was cool. Therefore, I assume you racing fans may enjoy as well.

My apologies if this has been shown before. It's new to me.

This type of racing through the city streets is more appealing than track racing for me, by far and IMO, seems to require much bigger attachments. Perhaps that's why I enjoyed it.

I can attest to the fact that true TT racing requires huge balls (bigger than mine!) and a very different type of approach and mindset to track racing. These guys are heros in my eyes, every year there is at least one - usually more than one - death at the Island, and they race with the ever present knowledge of that risk. With average lap speeds (Senior) around 130mph and hitting speeds of 175-180mph in parts, they deserve every ounce of respect you can muster.

Track racing by comparison is very safe, with run off areas, gravel traps and only 2 to 3 miles to learn. The surface is devoid of potholes and broken up pavement and the mindset is very different. For me the risk / benefit doesn't work for real road racing - I love the Island, have ridden the course many times, run Mad Sunday and know that it's not for me (I actually turned down a novice ride there MANY years back with a dealer sponsored bike - I've never regretted it).

It's simular to what I do (and the hard edged, no forgiveness, intensity of concentration) is why I do it.
 
My ride isn't on old city streets, though, it's on old wagon trail, mountain passes that got a hard surface put on them.  They are narrow (no center line, no guard rails,...rock wall on one side, drop off on the other).
 
I'm not fast like those guys are either, I just go as fast as I can, within the bounds of sightline and knowing what that tells me.

They clocked Keith Amor(?) at 190mph this year. Thats really really really,fast. My heros as well. The testicular fortitude required comes from a very few individuals.
Also meanie,There are a few posts with good footage,as well as some vids tucked in the race pic of the day. About 5 months till the nutters return to the isle.

Have been to IOM a couple of times but only once for racing. I marshalled the Senior TT last year at the Brandywell which is pretty much the highest point on the circuit. My view allowed me to see the riders approaching from about a mile away as tiny dots until they passed me. Breathtaking. Having to learn over 230 corners and hit them at massive speeds is incredible. So looking forward to this year. Feel free to have a nosey at my blog where I have written a short report on my trip to the TT and also where I am writting up an interview with a guy who has raced the Manx Grand Prix many times.
