Isle of Man TT and Manx Course
No where else on earth makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, like the 37.7 miles long Isle of Man Mountain course. With riders travelling at average speeds in excess of 130mph on roads lined with stone walls, it is definitely not for the faint hearted. It winds it's way through some amazing little villages and over the mountain range that runs along the island. The current course has been run since 1990.
The Isle of Man races began back in 1907 when the UK introduced a 20mph speed limit. With no speed limit racers travelled to the isle to test their machinery and so began the Tourist Trophy races. Over the years it has attracted many top competitors, like Giacomo Agostini with 11 wins and Mike Hailwood with 14. Joey Dunlop has the record number of wins to his name with 26. New Zealander Bruce Anstey has 11 TT titles to his credit including the Superbike race he won in 2015.
