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.
Welcome to Onboard of the Week, a feature where we spend that pesky time between races looking at awesome footage from inside the car, or onboard a bike, in this case.
That’s cutting it a bit close, eh?
Here is Korhonen’s full practice lap, just in case you had twenty minutes to look at the gorgeous Isle of Man countryside as he leans into every curve and corner of the the course.
The Isle of Man is a festival of speed and insanity, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The famed Tourist Trophy motorcycle race continues all this weekend.
