The TT or Tourist Trophy races are staged each summer, over the famous Mountain Course. This annual event attracts thousands of bike fans, from all over the world. The TT is possibly the most demanding race on earth, both on machinery and riders, and is also steeped in history. The Mountain Course is the oldest motorcycle racing circuit still in use, and in over a hundred years only two world wars and the outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease have prevented the TT.
