What is the Isle of Man TT?

For the few who have never heard of the Manx TT, it’s a road race on the Isle of Man (England). It is driven on ordinary roads and that has been a more than 100 year old tradition. It goes beyond normal country roads, through towns, over bridges, manhole covers, potholes, to curb edges, walls and houses …

The roads are not comparable to a race track, they have their markings, their waves and their damage. The course has a length of about 60.73 km and record the average speed per lap is 131.671 mph (approx. 211.9 km / h). Situated by John McGuinness.

Each driver risked his life here and it is not any of the Isle of Man again. One thing is for sure, who died there, in which died what he loved and that’s at least a small consolation.

John McGuinness is again this year to try Joey Dunlop’s record to come closer. Joey is unfortunately already deceased TT legend with an incredible 26 wins. It must be said that the TT consists of different classes. There are the Superbike TT, Supersport TT Superstock TT, TT Zero (Elektomotorräder), Lightweight TT, TT Sidecars and the famous Senior TT. Anyone can compete in several classes and John McGuinness is currently at 20 wins.

Horst Saiger (Kawasaki) will go this year for the second time on the Isle of Man at the start. From his first TT he has created a DVD which I can really recommend. You can buy it on his website are “Saiger Racing”.

The controversial Isle-of-Man-TT is also because of the infamous Mad Sunday.

Here the route is (now only a part) opened for the tourists as one-way street. Here, of course, everyone wants to emulate his idols and many overdo it. As I said, there are ordinary streets and die here usually at least as many tourists as professionals at the races.
