Great video on this past Isle of Mann TT that focuses more on the drivers and racing culture of this event. It never ceases to amaze me what these guys risk when they bolt out of the starting gate. They do it not for the money, but for their passion for racing and hopefully winning.

The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is, in my opinion, the greatest race in the world today. Half sport, half insanity, and almost NO money in it even if you win.

It's 37.5 miles of twists and turns at speeds over 200mph, and SIX laps averaging 135mph. No safety barriers on any part of the circuit. Elevation changes which throw a bike 7ft into the air at 190mph. Hard targets line every part of the road. A touch or a drop at 200mph is almost guaranteed to be fatal. Nothing stops spectators, animals or even kids from stepping out onto the track.

This is true motor racing in its rawest form.
