For two weeks in May and June the finest road racers on earth hone their skills against the 37¾ miles of public roads that form the legendary Isle of Man TT circuit. The first race was held in 1904. Times change. No need to tell you that. But some things don't, including the attractions of this race, which are described by Ian Kerr.
By the way, the electric machines for "the world’s first clean emission race took to the Mountain circuit today for the first practice session around the course. Despite the doubters, 10 of the 14 starters made it, and the speeds impressed all spectators".
The Isle of Man is a wonderful place.
