    Default Isle of Man TT Races

    Any of my fellow bikers on NMS following this years TT
    ITV4 are once again giving us 2 weeks of superb coverage
    Hope Guy Martin can get the electronics of the Honda Fireblade SP2 sorted and finally win a TT but I think his best chance of a TT win is actually on the Mugen in the zero race now that McGuiness is out

    I'm not a biker but I love the TT. I will go and watch it live at some point, surely one of the great sporting spectacles in the world

    I've only ever had one bike, Yamaha DT125R, years ago and I do like watching The T.T. occasionally but it is the ONLY motorsport I ever watch where I actually get scared just watching it !!!

    As Suzi Perry said in the preview to the film 'Road' "each & every one of them are (the road racers) gladiators"

    The TT is pure, raw, brutal racing & one day I want to tick the box by getting over to watch the riders following in the footsteps of my greatest ever motorsports hero, 'yer maun' Joey Dunlop.

    I am in the fortunate position of living on the Isle of Man, and it is an unbelievable experience. The whole island comes alive for 2 weeks, and the population goes up by 40000 extra bodies.So far this year we have had the dreaded cloak of Mannain ( low level mist and fog) and it has played havoc with practice days. Hopefully the weather might improve next week for race week ( fingers crossed). For all you people wanting to come to the TT, do it the buzz is superb.

    Yup, I've been keeping an eye on it and agree entirely, more coverage of this and other events like the NW200 etc as well.
    Would love to visit IOM for the TT never having been, but reckon it'll be too busy for me.
    Am looking at Coleraine instead as a more viable option to watch live bike racing.
    The speeds that these guys get up to on the roads is stupefying!
