THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH | ISLE of MAN TT


The International Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) Race [3] is a bike sport event held yearly on the Isle of Man in May or June of each year since the inaugural race in 1907. The Isle of Man TT for many years was the most prestigious bike race on earth as well as viewed as the greatest test for competitions and machines alike.[4] The Isle of Man TT has been administered by the Auto-Cycle Union (ACU) (formerly the Auto-Cycle Club) since 1907 and the Isle of Man TT race organisation is managed since 2008 by ACU Events Ltd, a fully owned subsidiary company of the ACU.[5] In 2016 the Vision Nine Group was made by the Isle of Man Department of Economic Development in a ten-year deal as a race advocate for the 2017 Isle of Man TT onwards. In a profit sharing arrangement with the private supporter, the Vision Nine Group will invest £2.5 Million in the function and the advocate replacing the preceding Isle of Man Department of Economic Development staff and race organisation.[6]

The Isle of Man TT has been traditionally run in a time trial structure on public roads closed for racing by the provisions of an Act of Tynwald (the parliament of the Isle of Man). The event includes one week of practice sessions followed by seven days of racing. It’s been a tradition possibly began by racing competitions in the early 1920s for viewers to tour the Snaefell Mountain Course on bikes during the Isle of Man TT on “Crazy Sunday,”[7] an informal and unofficial sanctioned event held on the Sunday[8] between ‘Training Week’ and ‘Race Week.’

The first Isle of Man TT race was held on Tuesday 28 May 1907 and was called the International Auto-Cycle Tourist Trophy.[9] The occasion was organised by the Auto-Cycle Club over 10 laps of the Isle of Man St John’s Brief Path of 15 miles 1,470 yards for road legal ‘touring’ bikes with exhaust silencers, bicycle seats, pedals and mudguards.

From 1911 the Isle of Man TT transferred to the considerably longer Snaefell Mountain Course of 37.40 miles (present span 37.73 miles). The race programme developed with two courses for the 1907 Isle of Man TT from one race, enlarging to two individual races for the 350cc Junior TT bike and the Blue Riband event the 500cc Senior TT race in 1911. The race didn’t occur . It restarted in 1920. A 250cc Lightweight TT race was added in 1922 to the Isle of Man TT programme.

There was no racing on the Isle of Man between 1940 and 1945. It recommenced with a significantly enlarged structure that contained the new Clubman’s TT races afterward the Isle of Man TT in 1947 with the Manx Grand Prix in 1946. The Isle of Man TT became part of the FIM Motor-cycle Grand Prix World Championship as the British round of the World Motor-Cycling Championship during the interval 1949. Following security concerns with the Snaefell Mountain Course and issues over short ‘beginning-cash’ for competitions, a boycott of the Isle of Man TT races happened from your early 1970s by many of the top opponents, bike makes and national bike sport federations.[10] It continues to be billed in popular culture as the most dangerous motorsport event on earth, with over 246 fatalities in its history. In 1976, its world championship standing was lost by the Isle of Man TT and was transferred to the UK by the FIM and run as the British Grand Motor-Cycle Grand Prix for the 1977 season. The Isle of Man TT Races subsequently became an essential part of the new fashion TT Formula 1, Formula 2 and Formula 3 World Championships between 1977 and 1990 to develop and preserve the international racing standing of the Isle of Man TT races.[11] The occasion was redeveloped by the Isle of Man Department of Tourism as the Isle of Man TT Festival from 1989 onwards. This comprised new racing events for the new Isle of Man TT Festival programme such as the Isle of Man Pre-TT Classic Races in 1989 -TT Races from 1991 and both. In 2013, the Isle of Man Classic TT was developed by the Isle of Man Department of Economic Development and the Auto-Cycle Union for historical racing bikes and combined with the Manx Grand Prix now forms part of the ‘Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling’ now held in late August of each year.

    Magnificent video of the king of motorcycle races. You can see why scores of riders have died at the Isle of Man–a more demanding, dangerous, and thrilling track is unimaginable.

    I've been watching the TT for years, but this footage mixed with this song makes it probably the most exciting video I've ever seen.
