They say a picture tells a thousand words. We thought we’d share a few thousand words showing the diversity of the two-week Isle of Man TT race festival

Since 1907, the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy race has been testing the skill of the riders and the endurance and reliability of motorcycles on the 37.73-mile (60.7 km) course. Running from May 30 to June 12 of this year, the Isle of Man TT is like no other race in the world as it winds through mountain roads and village streets with buildings and trees right at the road’s edge. John McGuiness set a new single lap record in 2015 with a time of 17 minutes 3.567 seconds at an average speed of 132.701 mph (213.56 km/h).
