Held on a small island off the west coast of England, The Isle of Man TT is recognized as one of the world’s most challenging and dangerous roadrace courses.

Since 1907, the TT (tourist trophy) has been run entirely on public roads, which are regularly used by Manx citizens the rest of the year. Each lap of the TT course covers 37¾ miles, with elevation changes ranging from sea level to 1300 feet.

The event is run in late May and early June each year.
