The Isle Of Man TT has claimed over 200 lives, yet riders keep showing up and the race keeps going. Many of us wonder how it’s all allowed to continue. This film, In Loving Memory, looks at the why.

This is a Studio Kippenberger production, directed by the inimitable Luke Huxham. The 20-minute short follows riders from first timers to the greatest legends still alive in the sport today. It’s a strange mix of confidence, apprehension, and fatal attraction that has them race what is basically a closed-off country road at 200 miles an hour.

It is, in a word, mesmerizing.

This isn’t a sponsored film. No bike company paid to produce it or sway it. It was done independently with the support of Vimeo, made possible as on-demand. Would you rather pay five bucks or watch a brand-influenced film for free?
