A very disturbing fact:
The first race was held in 1907, so 2019 will be the 185th (?) event.  According to Wikipedia, during the 185 events 261 people lost their lives (246 competitors, 15 race officials/bystanders/spectators).

I might have some figures incorrect, but this is a very sad truth.

Yes, the spoils is to conquer the mountain. There is not really big fame and certainly not a whole lot of money.
You have the motogp stars ( that win or lose, get their millions every season), they crash and come come back two races later.
So, this is driven by passion, not entertainment.
All or nothing, raw and pure, no bullshit. :thumleft:

I was lucky enough to go the TT in 2017 ...a small bunch of us went ... Heddles, Boere, Franarossi, my father and I

I planned it for close on a year - cost us R20K each all inclusive of return flights, ferry, accomodation, transport - I have some bike crazy friends in Northern Ireland that have been going to the TT every year for the last 30 years - we stayed with them in a house in Onchen (fancy suburb above Douglas port) for 25 pounds a day bed and breakfast

They had organised a big LWB Ford Transit van that we used to drive around and get to all the best spots

We flew from Cape Town to Frankfurt to Manchester then caught 3 trains to Heysham port and finally the ferry (loaded with 1000s of bikers and their bikes) to Douglas Port

The 2 most difficult things to get during the TT is accomodation and transport - all the hotels and B&Bs literally have standing bookings by the same people year after year ...and the same with rental cars. You can camp in various sites but it gets cold and rains a lot which turns the campsites into absolute miserable mudbaths

It was absolutely awesome and a big tick on my bucket list - I will resize some pics and post em

Organise another one for next year please? Im in
Me too. This Is on my buckit list

One lap 60km, i dont think there is a live tv broadcast.
Looks like Itv4 will have episodes each night.
Dont know the Itv setup, but think you can watch free with ad interuptions, or pay to watch with no ads.

If you haven't yet, watch the "Duke" video on Joey Dunlop's racing career.

A very special man, even amongst special men.

To, on race day, take a 125 2stroke, 250 twin 2stroke, 400, 600 and 1000, and win each race on all these types of bike. :eek7: :thumleft:

The Dunlop racing family called the Armoy armada, from their hometown in Ireland.

185 events in 112 years? Is that correct? I thought it was an annual event, that is once a year.
Thought so, tough behind a keyboard, but no balls.......

I was surprised to find all the episodes on DSTV catch up last night. Go to the sport tab. Only watched one as it was late but will start tackling the rest tonight.

There is two events per year, the classic TT and the modern bikes.

The genius of Honda's Joey Dunlop is also well demonstrated in him being the only [ I believe] rider ever to win every class in one event.

This means that he had to win on a Honda RS125, then on a RS250, both 2strokes, then win on a CBR400, then on a CBR600, then on a CBR1000, and finally on a CBR1000 F1 bike. :eek7: :eek7: :eek7:

All over the span of one week.

If you are a biker, read up on Joey.

I often wonder where do the Isle of Man riders practice? On racetracks or where?
It's not like they have 10 or 15 road races per year or have they?

They compete in the Irish roadracing series, like the Northwest 200, etc.

They practise like I used to, on public roads. :biggrin:

held over the same time it seems...
Friday 31st May 2019 - Saturday 8th June 2019, overlaps the TT 30 may to 12 June, to my mind one and the same... :sip:
Roll on 2021... >:D

I believe that because of the massive organisation involved like every animal must be behind at least 2 gates/doors, etc, the two different events are held close together or even overlapping.
