Hailed as the “Greatest motor sport event in the world,” The Isle of Man TT is easily also the most dangerous.
Last week, the 105-year-old motorbike racing event, held on the Snaefell Mountain Circuit on a small island in the Irish Sea, claimed two more lives, that of Bob Price and Karl ‘Bomber’ Harris.
No doubt all the week’s achievements were in their honor.
Michael Dunlop earned his first Senior Class win, bringing his grand total to a legendary 11 TT victories.
John McGuinness added to his six Senior Class wins with a win in the year-old all-electric Zero TT class.
To put the grandness of the Snaefell Mountain course into perspective: 92 of the world’s most famous race tracks can fit inside of it… including the Nurberg Ring and Le Sarth.
Watch the clip to get a better sense of the event.
200 mph jumps, knee dragging at 180 mph, two inches from spectators’ faces…
Just remember to exhale…
