Success at 2015 Isle of Man TT RacesPosted on Oct 02, 2015
More than 100 years on and thrill seekers still venture to the Isle of Man every summer for the same reason the gentleman of 1907 did, the Tourist Trophy more commonly known, The Isle of Man TT.
The Classic TT & the Isle of Man TT 2015 have been extremely successful this year. From convincing wins from Dunlop & Keen in the exciting Classic TT final to Guy Martin joining the super elite 132mph club – this year has been more exhilarating than ever.
The 350cc Classic TT Race saw Michael Rutter on Honda/Ripley Land Racing Bike take 1st Place on 31st August 2015, with a time of 01:06:51.993 with a speed of 101.566 receiving the Silver replica Classic TT award. The F1 Classic TT Race saw Michael Dunlop on Suzuki Bike take 1st Place with a time of 01:13:37.628, Bruce Anstey narrowly missed out coming 2nd with a time of 01:14:41.154.
Finally, the 500cc Classic TT Race saw Dean Harrison take 1st place with a time of 01:23:11.161, whilst Ian Loughler took 2nd Place narrowly missing out with a time of 01:23:37.965.
There is nothing on Earth quite like the Isle of Man TT Races. No other motorcycle race is held on such a challenging track as the 37-mile plus Mountain Course with its seemingly never-ending series of bends, bumps, jumps, stone walls, manhole covers and telegraph poles.
The skill, bravery and concentration levels required are immense, with speeds approaching 200mph, and, while difficult to learn and even harder to come first, the rewards for winning on the world famous course are like no other.
No other motorsport event can boast more than 100 years of such illustrious history, rich in tradition and legends, and to have your name inscribed on a TT trophy is to sit with the gods.
TT racing captures the imagination in a way no other race can and its sheer spectacle and uniqueness ensures thousands of fans flock to the Island every May and June for their annual fix.
No other motorsport event attracts people in great numbers for an entire period of two weeks except the world famous TT Races, where fans can revel in the Island’s special mix of incredible racing and world class entertainment – and all set amongst the beautiful scenery of the Isle of Man.
