Yeah, I think the Mann TT is best 2 (and 3) wheel racing on pavement in the world. Because of limited bandwidth I didn't watch this YouTube but I watch the yearly week of races there on TV (the Velocity channel?) Most of the time vehicles on TV don't seem to be going as fast as they really are, but with the Mann racing you feel it. Raises my heart and respiration rate just watching lol. Too bad the announcers have trouble speaking English clearly. ;)

It is good that most road courses are safer than the Isle of Mann, but I'm glad there's one place in the world that is still old school.

I watched a documentary on this after watching a few races, and was extremely disappointed! its called charged on Netflix. they ran the course on electric bikes at a 1/4 of the speed... as for the engineering it was awesome, but for the legacy of what that race is all about and stands for they should have selected a different track to use.

not 1/4 speed, 1/5 length. the tt zero race is only 1 lap because none of the electric bikes can go longer than that on a single charge.

they can run the tt zero race for 5 laps if they wanted to. they'd just need a 12 hour pit stop every lap.
