Racer John McGuinness has won the Isle Of Man TT 23 times, which places him second in all time wins after Joey Dunlop’s 26. That didn’t stop Mugen from fat shaming him, telling him they’d give him a bike only if he lost some weight. His idea? Liposuction.
My biggest problem with most bike builds is that they’re done purely for show, with no thought given to riding the damn thing. Such is not the case with this Suzuki XR69, which is headed to the most dangerous road race on the planet.
In Loving Memory, the new film on the Isle of Man TT, the deadliest race in the world, is so good that it deserves another trailer.
At a certain point, you stop being shocked by how many people have died here. The shock is how many are still alive.
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.
The Isle of Man is a small scenic stretch of land situated in a spot of sea between the United Kingdom and Ireland. It’s also the home to one of the most (if not THE most) insane bit of motorsports on the planet.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that the riders at the Isle of Man TT have some sort of obscene death wish. They drove ridiculously fast, on what are normally public roads, on just two wheels. I mean, just look at how little reaction time you have when you smack into a curb at 160 MPH.
A lot of videos have been made of the Isle of Man TT. You know the ones I’m talking about. A bike goes really fast, an engine makes a lot of noise, and everyone goes “oooh, aaah.” But those are just videos. IOM TT is a film, and just from this teaser, it looks incredible.
The Isle of Man TT is one of the fastest, most dangerous races in the world. 600cc rider Tuukka Korhonen got a nice reminder why Snaefell Mountain is such a notorious course during Wednesday’s practice, where he had several faster motorcycles whir past him within a few minutes.
Chris Kippenberger, the most interesting man in car porn, is on a tiny island in the Irish Sea right now. He’s got some of the best shooters in the world, and he’s making a film on perhaps the most recklessly, incomprehensibly dangerous motor race on Earth: the Isle of Man TT.
Horrible news just came out from across the pond. Franck Petricola died in a crash this evening during a qualifying session at the Isle of Man TT.
Guy Martin, British racing ace and potential Jeremy Clarkson replacement, still hasn't taken home a win at the Isle of Man. It's certainly not for a lack of trying, as evidenced by this face-melting video from the TT.
Isle Of Man TT videos are losing their shock value. Yes, it's fast. Yes, it's dangerous. Yes, we're in awe of their two-wheeled talents. But this run by TT legend John McGuinness is different. He's on an electric bike setting a new world record. And it's an odd combination of tranquil and terrifying.
Mark Higgins wasn't satisfied with his previous record set on Wednesday, so he took out his 2015 Subaru Impreza WRX STI again around the 37 mile TT course and set a new one at 117,5 mph.
Subaru sent Mark Higgins to the Isle of Man again in a new WRX STI to beat his own record around the Tourist Trophy course. Which he just did, doing an average of 116.40 mph on that crazy circuit. That's roughly as fast as Stirling Moss on acid.
There is nothing on earth quite like the Isle of Man TT race. Each year, scores of competitors both professional and amateur line up to try their luck on one of the most difficult and dangerous courses of all time.
Would an F1 or Nascar driver say "I know that last year people thought I was a bit of a ball bag and a twat," and, "...the tip of my bell-end's burnt"? Watch from 4.40 to hear the glorious Michael Dunlop, if you can understand him.
Rider Yoshinari Matsushita, 43, was killed during qualifying for the Isle of Man TT today. His death marks the 240th on the Snaefell Mountain Course on which the TT is held, and the 21st since 2000.
"Mad Sunday" on the Isle of Man must truly be one of the most epic examples of common men allowed to live their boy-racer fantasies. It opens a section of the course to the general public, allowing Joe Hooligan and his Speed Triple to hoon it through the misty Manx mountains, risking life, limb and the pursuit of…
