Many audiences are keen on motorcycle racing thanks to the skilled racers. However, some others are impressed by the motor races. The followings are some of the most extreme motorcycle races in the world.
1/ Isle of Man TT
The first of the list is the Isle of Man TT. Launched in 1907, it is one of the oldest and most dangerous motor races in the world. The Isle of Man TT is held on the public roads around the Island, the Snaefell Mountain Circuit, with a total length of 37.73 miles. The racers have to go over villages, glens, bridges, and country roads.
A motor racer must take about three years to learn about the track thoroughly. Unlike other forms of motorsport, outright power and technological advantage will not ensure your victory, but the experience is key.
After the death of David Jefferies, a star of the Isle of Man TT, at the 2003 event, the organizers have continually made efforts to improve safety at the race. They have asked all marshals to be in the line of sight of one another, especially at the dangerous corners.
However, it isn’t easy to make a race completely safe. With the average speed of about 132mph, the fatalities still record in the race.
2/ National Irish road racing
The National Irish road races are all mad in their ways. Of which, Tandragee is undulating; Cookstown is fast while Skerries is extremely narrow. However, the Armoy Race of Legends is the most favorite motor race in recent years.
The race is extremely fast and narrow, with some huge jumps. The old-school nature of the race has drawn many top road racers, including fans’ favorite Guy Martin and even ex-GP star Jeremy McWilliams.
Although the event has been blighted in recent years due to the bad weather, the organizers usually run the races anyway.
