I don't know how these guys have got the bottle but if you have; the thrill must be addictive and like nothing I can imagine. Just watching these dare devils is breath taking. Guy Martin - the thrill seeking adventurer takes part in these races and his ambition is to one day win it.
The Isle of Man TT has public roads shut off and the road around the island in the Irish sea, between Britain and Ireland is exempt from certain UK or Ireland Government rules. The Isle of Man has its own parliament and has not allowed UK, Ireland, or EU road safety restrictions to stop its prestigious and monumental race. It is also one of the most dangerous racing events in the world. In around one hundred and seven events since 1907, the TT has claimed in excess of 240 lives during race and training sessions.
Combined with other non fatal, yet hair raising crashes; the event speaks for itself. Every year when the race is held; it is like a Mecca for motorbike enthusiasts and race spectators. People from around the planet flock to the island. I, like all good spectators, wish to go to the Isle of Man TT at least once.
