Nothing gets a good CarNeck's blood pumping more than watching some good Motorsports racing. Whether it's adrenaline packed 24 hour races of Le Mans, or the exceedingly quick lap times of Formula One racing. Every now and then it's worth it to take a break from automotive racing and appreciate the death-defying 200 mph motorcycle racing of Isle of Man: The world's most deadly motorcycle race.
Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) is a motorcycle racing event held on the Isle of Man and was for many years the most prestigious motorcycle race in the world. The race is a time trial format that is held on public streets and has been going on for over a 100 years. The entire course is 37.75 miles long and takes nearly 18 minutes to do one lap. John McGuinness holds the world record for the fastest lap time of 17:12.30 and an average speed of 131.578. Not bad for a course that runs through neighborhood streets and rolling hills.
The popular race track is also unfortunately notorious for having taken the lives of over 230 motorcycle racers over the past 100 years. The combined speed, danger, and course makes for one spectacular show which is very nicely conveyed in this Isle of Man TT 2012 video.
